A Practitioner from Mainland China Validates the Fa in Canada during Hu Jintao's Visit
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a Falun Gong practitioner from Hebei Province. I arrived in Canada on May 8 and participated in World Falun Dafa Day activities on May 13 and the large-scale parades to support the millions of people who have resigned from the Communist Party. I think that no matter where Dafa disciples go, they cannot forget their responsibilities.
On September 10, I went with fellow practitioners to the Intercontinental Hotel to help with activities related to submitting the written petition to the visiting Hu Jintao and asking him to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. Four-foot tall cardboard characters declared: "Hu Jintao, the time that Heaven and the people are giving to you is limited." When I saw these characters laid out, my heart was moved by Dafa disciples' mercy to all the world's people, including Hu Jintao. I was asked to hold the character "Hu". When I held it, I was flooded with all sorts of feelings. Thinking that while I stood there, thousands of fellow practitioners in mainland China were still withstanding all kinds of brutal torture, tears welled up in my eyes.
Suddenly a few well-dressed middle-aged men blocked the banner I was holding. I realized that they were there at the direction of the Chinese consulate. The battle between good and evil was happening right here. I tried to persuade them with the intent of saving them. But an older Chinese man started to make a scene, claiming that my action was against China. While I patiently told him about the benefits of practicing Falun Gong and my personal experience with the practice, we asked the police to persuade him to leave. He finally left.
At around 10:30, as Hu was entering the hotel from the north entrance, I quickly carried a large board with the characters Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in front of the CBC news camera near the main entrance. I wanted to eliminate all the barriers with my righteous thoughts and let people see Dafa's dignity. The righteous thoughts took effect and the people who tried to block me moved away, so the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party" board was displayed prominently.
When Hu came out, we all followed him, shouting: "Stop persecuting Falun Gong", "Falun Dafa is the righteous practice", "Hu Jintao, the time that Heaven and the people are giving to you is limited", and so on.
In the afternoon, fellow practitioners and I sent righteous thoughts and practiced the exercises on the sidewalk opposite the main entrance of the Intercontinental Hotel. The atmosphere was very peaceful.
This is the first time I have attended large-scale activities since July 20, 1999. We had 60 practitioners exercising together. Compared with the practitioners in Mainland China, I am very lucky. The pedestrians smiled at us as they passed by. Some of them came to find out more about Falun Dafa. Some of them understood China very well. They said they really couldn't understand the Chinese government's behavior. They really sympathized with us and said we were doing the right thing. However, some Chinese people treated us coldly, making it clear that some people still don't understand Dafa. We need to try harder to help them.
In the early evening, fellow practitioners held a banner at the side entrance to wait for Hu. At that time, there were very few people still holding red flags. At six o'clock, the mounted and special police started to move. We guessed that Hu was returning to the hotel, and began to shout, "Stop persecuting Falun Gong," "Falun Dafa is the righteous practice," and "Falun Dafa is good." Many westerners stopped to watch, record videos and take pictures. Some of them insisted on a group photo with our practitioners. I was very touched by the warm and kindhearted side of these people's hearts.
