France: People in Le Havre Sympathize with China's Persecuted Falun Gong Practitioners (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On July 10th, a group of French practitioners arrived in Le Havre, the last stop on their tour of Normandy. They set up a stall on a square near Le Havre seaside resort on the bank of the Seine River. La Havre is regarded as a holiday resort for affluent people. The weekend was full of sunshine and there were lots of people around.
People paying attention to the facts about Falun Gong
Practitioners demonstrated Falun Gong's five sets of beautiful and simple exercises and this attracted both attention and admiration from tourists. People came over to find out more and saw the posters exposing the persecution against practitioners in China at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The stark contrast left them asking why such a peaceful practice could be suffering such terrible human rights abuses.
A university student, after comprehending the brutality of the persecution, said that she had lived in Bulgaria and they had been ruled by the Communist Party. She said she could therefore fathom the atrocities being waged against practitioners in China by the CCP.
Two young people liked Falun Gong's principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" and said, "Because the Communist Party is afraid of the truth, it then persecutes Falun Gong, whose vision is Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance."
A middle-aged couple deeply sympathized with the practitioners in China and asked for a petition form for their friends to sign and call for an end to the torture of practitioners.
After hearing about the Chinese Communist Party's clamping down on the freedom of people's thoughts and actions, a young girl wrote, "This whole thing is too inhumane. The persecution should be stopped and freedom given back to Falun Gong practitioners."
