(Clearwisdom.net) After continuously exposing the CCP's atrocities of harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners in labor camps and concentration camps in China for the last few days, on the April 15, 2006, many Falun Gong practitioners from Mersin and Istanbul gathered at the famous Baris Meydani in the Mersin City Center to mourn the fellow practitioners in Mainland China who have died as a result of persecution. Practitioners continued to expose the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) barbaric crimes, and further called on the Turkish government and the international community to immediately help stop the CCP's killing of Falun Gong practitioners, and to urgently rescue Falun Gong practitioners who are suffering the genocidal persecution in China.

Demonstrating the Falun Gong exercises and exposing the persecution

On the broad Baris Meydani near the seaside, many local citizens came for a leisurely walk and many tourists came for sightseeing. Some practitioners demonstrated the elegant Falun Gong exercises to the peaceful exercise music while other practitioners handed out truth-clarification leaflets. Some practitioners talked to people who wanted to learn further about the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China, and talked about the CCP's large-scale killing of Falun Gong practitioners and harvesting their organs for sale and cremating their remains to destroy the evidence of the crimes. Practitioners displayed many big pictures about the truth of the persecution, including banners written in both Chinese and Turkish, which attracted many passers-by to stop and read. After reading about or listening to the truth, they were shocked by the CCP's appalling crimes. People could not help but shake their heads and sigh. Some could not believe or were not willing to believe that this is really happening. Apart from the astonishment, almost all the people expressed their condemnation and indignation against the CCP's brutal conduct.

Having understood the truth, people are shocked by the CCP's appalling crimes

A tourist from another province expressed that the CCP is simply too horrible. The tourist said that we should appeal to all just governments and people to stop the CCP's crimes.

Having carefully read the truth-clarification leaflet, a retired teacher over sixty years old said to the practitioners that everybody knows of the CCP's brutal nature. The CCP is so tyrannical and is conducting such a brutal killing of its own people. Its end will definitely be more miserable than any other former communist party country which has already collapsed; it will be forever held in disdain by all the world's people.

A university student with a visual impairment earnestly and carefully listened to the practitioners' explanations about each of the truth-clarification pictures, then tightly grasped a practitioner's hands and said, "In the 21st century nowadays, there is this kind of crime of harvesting organs from living people. It is not only the sadness of China, but also the shame of the whole of humanity. It is in defiance of human morality and conscience. You should certainly persist in your effort; all people of justice will stand on your side and support you."

Some people stood in front of the pictures for a long time and were not willing to leave. From their expressions, one could easily tell that their inner hearts were extremely shocked. A gentleman who looked like a government official came up to a Chinese practitioner and said with a dignified expression and with concern, "You have nothing to be afraid of, Turkey is a free and democratic country. The government and people here can understand and support you."

A Turkish practitioner clarifies the truth to police officers and plainclothes police officers

A few police officers on duty on the square were all indignant after learning the facts of the Chinese Communist police's inhuman persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Many times they wanted to express their condemnation but hesitated because of the nature of their occupation. However, finally a policeman could not bear it and said that the conduct of the Chinese police is simply not understandable.

The practitioners' activity lasted for two continuous days. It drew some local media's attention on the first day. Dogan, the biggest news media outlet in Turkey, made a special trip to the event and conducted a long interview about this activity.
