(Clearwisdom.net) On September 17, 2006, the peaceful lotus car tour that was initiated by four Falun Gong practitioners launched to rescue Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted in China.

Local elected official Hans Rädler hosts the launch ceremony

At each tour stop, practitioners set up information table to explain the fact

The starting place for the tour was Moenichkirchen. A local elected official, Hans Rädler, hosted the ceremony.

The first stop was Villach. The first visitor to the information table was an 11 or 12 years old Chinese girl. She looked at the posters attentively. Vice Mayor Sandriesser came to the information table to learn the facts about the CCP’s brutal persecution of Falun Gong and took detailed information about Falun Gong. Many local people signed the petition calling for an end to the persecution.

The second stop on the first day was Klagenfurt, Kärnten, during Austria’s election for prime minister. One candidate’s campaign site was close to the practitioners’ table. The practitioners gave truth-clarification materials to candidate Dr. Alfred Gusenbauer. He told the practitioners that he knew about the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong in China and wished the practitioners success in stopping the persecution. The practitioners also gave truth-clarification information to Ms. Gaby Schaunig, Governor of Kärnten.

The practitioners will continue to tour Austria and introduce Falun Gong to more kind-hearted people.
