France: The First Tour of Paris to Introduce Falun Gong and Expose the Persecution Reaches its Final Destination (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On October 22nd 2005, the first six-month-long tour of Paris to promote Falun Gong came to the last stop, Sevres Babylone, a subway station located on the intersection of Rue de Sevres and Rue de Babylone, in the south west of Paris.
Distributing Falun Gong truth-clarification leaflets
French practitioners hung up banners reading "Call on the CCP to stop the persecution of Falun Gong". Attracted to the traditional-style Chinese music specially composed by practitioners, people took away leaflets and signed their names in opposition to the persecution. For people living in democratic countries, it's very difficult for them to understand why the Chinese Communist Party would commit such inhuman atrocities.
Signing a petition calling for an immediate end to the persecution
One man asked, "What do you think about the Chinese Communist Party?" A practitioner answered him, "It's the CCP that persecutes Falun Gong." He immediately took a pen to sign his name on the petition sheet and said, "I object to Communism. I support you!"
Many people wanted to learn more details about the truth of the persecution. A member of an NGO came by. He asked lots of questions and talked to practitioners for a long time. In the beginning he didn't know anything about Falun Gong at all, but after talking with practitioners he became aware of some details of the persecution and its background. In the end, he said that he was very happy to have the opportunity to learn about the facts and signed the petition against the persecution.
A plain-clothes police officer in charge of security for our activity had talked at length with practitioners previously. Offering his understanding and support for our campaign, he frequently came over and chatted with us.
The project to tour Paris and let the French people know about Falun Gong and the persecution began in April, 2005. It was organized by French practitioners who spent their holidays to let people in twenty regions of Paris know the truth. Many people have learned about the persecution this way and French practitioners will make every effort to launch further campaigns to let all people in France have a chance to learn about this brutal persecution in China..
