(Clearwisdom.net) Place du Château Rouge is located in the 18th district in north Paris. A flea market, Montmartre and other tourist spots are all near here, so the place is usually crammed with people. On October 1st 2005, Falun Gong practitioners in France visited Place du Château Rouge and held an activity to introduce Falun Dafa and expose the persecution.
Many people expressed support for Falun Gong and opposed the illegal persecution taking place in China. They also denounced the Chinese Communist Party for its shameless human rights abuses against Falun Gong practitioners.
Practitioners demonstrated the exercises and handed out leaflets. When they were talking with the public about human rights in China, many people said that they fully understood. Some people even picked up leaflets left on the ground by others and read them carefully. They asked to sign the petition against the persecution. A lady who was unable to write in French took out her ID card and asked for someone near her to fill in the petition form on her behalf to express support for Falun Gong.
