The CCP's persecution of Falun Gong catches the attention of people in Verona
Many people sign their names to call for an end to the CCP's persecution
Many passersby stopped and watched the anti-torture exhibition. They read the truth-clarification poster boards and banners very carefully to get information about the 7-year-long persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. In front of the practitioners' reenactment of the CCP's torture methods, many passers-by stopped, looked and thought quietly. Many of them signed their names on our petition form calling for an end to the persecution.
A tourist from New Zealand shed tears after listening to the truth-clarification, and gave a warm hug to the practitioner who explained the facts to her. She sincerely wished that the persecution would end soon. Another woman asked for lots of Chinese newspapers to give to Chinese people in her city.
Practitioners also demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises. The peacefulness and tranquility of the Dafa exercises showed a clear contrast to the brutality of the persecution. Several people also expressed their interest in learning Falun Dafa.
