(Clearwisdom.net) "As Christmas approached, Falun Gong practitioners in Augsburg, Germany, had a wish to give a special Christmas gift to the local people," said Mrs. Shao. "Our Christmas gift is different from other gifts. People in the world are always eager for beautiful things. In fact, it is a great blessing to come in contact with Falun Gong."

On December 16, 2006, it was very crowded in Augsburg. People went to town to stroll around the Christmas markets on the sunny weekend. When they passed by King Square, many people were attracted by the elegant music and peaceful exercise movements displayed by Falun Gong practitioners.

People sign petition condemning the CCP atrocities of live organ harvesting

Mrs. Shao told this reporter that over the past six months, she and other practitioners have held an activity in that area every month to expose the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) human rights atrocities. Mrs. Shao mentioned that many people were happy to receive leaflets and asked practitioners for more materials including the book, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.

After learning about Falun Gong’s peaceful resistance to over seven years of persecution, as well as the practice’s popularity around the world and its principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance, people commended Falun Gong and expressed condemnation of the brutal persecution. Several people from India signed their names to the petition and were happy to see pictures on the exhibition board of Indians practicing Falun Gong.

"After I saw the leaflet reading ‘Live Organ Harvesting from Falun Gong Practitioners by the CCP’, I wanted to find out what Falun Gong is and why the CCP would suppress it." said an ethnic Chinese from Brazil, who signed the petition opposing the persecution. He said he has always been interested in traditional Chinese culture and plans to learn Falun Gong. "I cannot accept torture wherever it exists, because it is against human dignity. Now I have found out what Falun Gong is; however, I cannot understand why the CCP would exert such a brutal persecution against innocent, peaceful practitioners. The behavior of the CCP is impossible and unreasonable. Thus, I will use my signature on this petition to express my support for Falun Gong practitioners."
