The activity was held in Clara Square in the center of Basel, the second largest city in Switzerland. Practitioners sought to publicize the CCP's nine-year persecution of Falun Gong.

It snowed all day and was very cold, so people were walking very fast. But many did stop to view the display boards and were shocked by what they saw. Some even went to the desk to ask for more detailed information and to sign a petition to support Falun Gong.

A man who already knew about the persecution came up to the desk specifically to express his anger toward the CCP.

After inquiring about the persecution, a lady was sympathetic towards Falun Gong practitioners and said that she was very sad there were so many bad things happening in the world. Some people were shocked after hearing about the brutal torture practitioners have suffered and the organ harvesting from living practitioners. They said that it was unbelievable that such evil still existed in the world.

Many expressed their desire for an end this evil and hoped that such human rights violations would end soon.

On December 10, 2008, practitioners in Berne held an Information Day activity in the city center, eespite the heavy snowfall. Many people were moved by their perseverance and took the initiative to come over to express their concerns. Many people signed a petition to support Falun Gong.

Definitely." Then she pointed at the practitioners in the photos and said, "I will pray for them."

The snowed and the cold made many people show their concerns. A lady said to a practitioner, "It's so cold today, and you've been really working hard." The practitioner replied, "It is indeed cold, but whenever I think of Falun Gong practitioners who have been tortured to death in China, I feel I'm too comfortable." After listening to the practitioner's explanation, the lady smiled and wished the practitioners success.

A student asked for a dozen signature collection sheets and said that he wanted to encourage his classmates to sign the petition.

Many people asked for truth clarification materials and signed the petition. Everyone from the Amnesty International booth came to the Falun Dafa information desk to sign the petition and show their support.
