They were amazed by the practitioners' superb and masterful painting skills. They appreciated the fact that Falun Dafa is beneficial to people's health and morality.

After seeing the paintings, one of them saw the book, Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party on the counter.

Retired Doctor: People Have Long Lost Faith in the CCP

A retired medical doctor, 86 years old, stood a long time in front of the painting Tiger Bench. He said that it reminded him of what he saw on the street in his hometown in China when he was a teenager. Gangsters were punished with the exact same torture method. Now the punishment is being used to torture kind and law-abiding people. The doctor couldn't believe his eyes.

The doctor saw the CCP's brutal and indifferent attitude towards lives as he learned that the medical system was now being used to steal practitioners' organs for profit. The doctor believes that the information Falun Gong practitioners have disclosed has great power and will be effective in opposing the CCP's tyranny. He believes that people around the world have long lost their faith in the CCP.

Can't Believe the Persecution Is Not Over

A man stood a long time in front of the painting depicting organ removal from a living Falun Gong practitioner.

She thanked the host for telling her all about Falun Gong. She finally understood that the purpose of holding so many exhibitions was to help end the persecution.

The woman was impressed with how well practitioners could paint. She carefully looked at every painting and noticed every small detail.
