The American People Ask: What Has Our Government Done to Help?
(Clearwisdom.net) On April 1, 2006, Falun Gong practitioners from Columbus, Ohio heard that the first Saturday evening of each month is the famous Gallery Hop in the local area, and that tens of thousands of people would gather together on High Street. Five Falun Gong practitioners made sandwich boards with photos exposing the Chinese Communist regime's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. They went to the High Street with the sandwich boards and distributed truth-clarification flyers regarding the latest revelation of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) barbaric atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and cremating their murdered bodies to destroy the evidence.
Many Americans have already learned about this incident. Some people heard about it from media reports, and some human rights organizations have learned about it from their own channels. Many more people heard about it for the first time at the Gallery Hop and felt deep shock. They took flyers to read and expressed that it was too horrible, similar to the reappearance of the Nazis. Some people felt it was unbelievable. The practitioners described what the three witnesses had testified, and told them that similar crimes are commonplace in many prisons, forced labor camps, hospitals and related facilities in different places in China. The crimes are still continuing covertly in some places right now. People were very much shocked that such a terrible tragedy could occur today, even though many people know that the CCP is able to do any evil thing.
Many people asked, "What has the American government done (to stop the persecution)?" "What has the UN done?" "How can we help?" The practitioners hoped that they would make phone calls to their congressmen, the White House and the UN. Many people agreed to do so. Some people took the initiative to help photocopy the informational materials and helped distribute them. They thanked the practitioners for telling them this urgent and important information.
When the Falun Gong practitioners later called their congressmen, they also conveyed the American people's opinions. The congressmen were deeply moved.
