Citizens of Brno, Czech Republic: "We Must Take Action to Stop the Atrocities" (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Over the last four weeks, Falun Gong practitioners from the Czech Republic contacted members of the Czech Parliament, city mayors and small towns, the media, all artists in theatres and musicians, organizations for human rights as well as many other groups, to let them know about the terrible crimes of organ harvesting happening in China to Falun Gong practitioners today. Many of them responded quickly by signing the petition calling for the end to the persecution and the release of all Falun Gong practitioners from concentration camps, as well as encouraging organizations such as the UN to start investigating these crimes.
It has been two weeks since the last protest activity was organized in the historical center of Brno. The placement of the activities was the same as always, but this time the atmosphere was somehow calmer. The day was nice and warm and people were very open to learn about the persecution and illegal organ harvesting in China. Many people were interested and came to take flyers. Many took a flyer and read it while walking away, but, after several steps they stopped, turned around and went straight to the petition to sign it. This scene was quite common.
When explaining the facts to passers-by, it was clear how moved they were by this terrible news. One older lady was reading the banners about the suffering practitioners must bear under the persecution. For her it was hard to accept. She was very moved and when signing the petition she had tears in her eyes. Before she left she added, "I hope this will help."
A few steps further you could see a little boy with his mother. He had a lot of questions about all of what he saw on the display boards: "Mom, why do they harm these people, when you say they are good?" His mother patiently kept explaining to him about what the communist regime is, what its nature is and how it treats people. When his mom answered the question, "What is the petition and what is it for," he replied, "So go sign it. Please, Mom, don't be shy. Go sign the petition." Then both walked over to the table.
People from different religious groups showed their support and talked about the decreasing morality in the world. All agreed that Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance are needed in the world today and that the atrocities of killing people by taking their organs while they are still alive to sell them is something that needs to be stopped and doesn't belong in the 21st century.
Two young men from the United States, after listening to the truth about the concentration camps in China, the organ harvesting and other atrocities said, "Yeah, that is ridiculous when the communist regime chooses who can come to do the investigation. They only show them what they want them to see." They added their signatures to the petition calling for real and independent investigations into the Chinese labor camps and for the end of the persecution of Falun Gong.
Many people added also their written commentaries. Here are some of them:
"This goes far beyond humanity. We must stop it."
"There is not too much we can say about such horror. We must do something about it!"
"We need to fight for the freedom of these people. One for all, all for one."
"How can we turn a blind eye to this nowadays?"
"I don't beg for them, I ask YOU (the government) to help these people."
