Germany: Practitioners from Germany and Austria Hold a Peaceful Appeal at the Chinese Consulate in Munich (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) During the state visit of human rights criminals Zeng Qinghong and Bo Xilai to South Africa, a Falun Gong practitioner coming from Australia to file a lawsuit in South Africa was shot by a hired gunman. Mr. Selby Bokaba, a police officer in South Africa's capital city of Johannesburg, said that evidence had been collected from the victim and a witness. Mr. Bokaba explained that five Chinese people traveled together from Australia to protest against Zeng Qinghong, China's Vice President, who was paying a visit to South Africa. They reserved hotel rooms in Johannesburg. When the five travelers were on their way by car from the airport to the hotel, another car on the highway fired shots at them, leading to the injury of the driver. Inspector Dennis Adril, a spokesman for the Police Department, said that the police had assigned the best detective in the Serious Violence and Crime Unit to investigate this case. The case has been categorized as attempted murder.
In order to condemn Zeng Qinghong and Bo Xilai for the attack on Falun Gong practitioners who were trying to make a peaceful appeal, practitioners from Bavaria and Austria came to the Chinese Consulate in Munich to present a petition. The purpose was to remind the Chinese people and the international community that what we are facing is the most vicious campaign in history. At the same time, as the crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and torture continue in China, these crimes have been extended overseas. In nearly five years of persecution against Falun Gong, the persecution on foreign soil has advanced from harassment, interference of basic human rights, death threats and beatings to hired gunmen. The degree of brutality of Jiang's persecution against Falun Gong all over the world keeps increasing. Falun Gong practitioners called upon the international society to condemn and put a stop to these terrorist acts.
Falun Gong practitioners from Austria told a German practitioner that the conduct of the Jiang group this time was really insane. In order to expose these atrocities, they decided to come to Munich to join the demonstration no matter how far they had to travel.
After they learned about the shooting incident, an elderly German couple indicated that they had a hard time believing such a thing could have happened. They signed their names immediately on the "Bring Jiang to Justice" petition form. They also asked for a blank signature-collecting petition form so that they could collect more signatures to support Falun Gong practitioners.
A young German man and a Chinese lady told practitioners what had just happened to them when they visited the Chinese Consulate. The young man showed practitioners a booklet that contained information slandering Falun Gong. He said the booklet was provided by a staff member of the Chinese Consulate. A German practitioner talked to him for a very long time. In the end, he understood the truth and left the booklet with us. The Chinese lady also asked us what the 'self-immolation incident' was all about. Practitioner explained the truth behind her concerns. She said, "I finally realize what has actually happened. In the very beginning, I was shocked when I saw the self-immolation on Chinese TV." She happily took the information Video-CD that a practitioner gave to her.
Practitioners also chatted to the policewoman on duty. When the policewoman was told of the monstrous crimes committed by the Jiang group, she was astonished. The policewoman treated practitioners very well after she realized the truth about Falun Gong. When passers-by asked her what was going on, the policewoman helped explain the truth and reminded them to take information materials from the appeal. An old gentleman sat in a nearby coffee shop and watched Falun Gong practitioners sending forth righteous thoughts. He told practitioners that the movements of the Falun Gong exercises are very beautiful. He even bought coffee and cakes for the practitioners.
