Russia: Moscow Residents Awaken to the Truth (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On August 21, Falun Gong practitioners from Moscow again went to the city center to let people know about the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong, and to call for the citizens of Moscow to pay attention to and help stop this inhumane persecution.
Event calls for attention and help to end the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China
The venue for our activity was in a square neighboring a big park and a train station. In addition to the especially fine and clear weather, it was also a weekend, and thus there were lots of people coming here for a walk or just a rest.
Our "Falun Dafa" banner and our big sign calling to "Stop the Persecution of Falun Gong in China" were very eye-catching. There were always a large number of bystanders in front of the information posters. After learning about the situation, people signed the anti-persecution petitions one after another.
Moscow citizens are very concerned about the brutality
At the site, we witnessed many touching stories which told us that people here are awakening to the truth:
Pure hearts of Children
Many parents came to read the posters with their children. Some of these children were babies of a few months, still lying in strollers, while others were preschoolers. Just by looking at their facial expressions one could see their hearts were moved. People all have a knowing side that understands the truth.
Young people with conscience and kindness
Many groups of young people passed by our spot because it was the only way to the park. Most people were attracted by this unusual site. Some read the posters in detail, others listened carefully to practitioners' explanations. After getting to know the truth, crowds of people queued up to sign the petition to show their opposition to the persecution. Some people even came back after signing the petition to listen to practitioners explain everything again.
Some young people had playful and disrespectful thoughts in mind and only wanted to join in for fun. Nevertheless when they walked into this field, stood before the posters and saw the cruel truth of good people being tortured to death, their attitudes gradually turned more serious. After understanding what was going on, they also came to sign their names on the anti-persecution petition, adding their weight to the justice side on the great scale of justice and evil.
Many people sign practitioners' petition to support Falun Dafa
An elderly lady looked at the posters for a very long time. When she was signing the petition at the table, her expression was solemn and dignified and she said to practitioners: "How similar". One could see that there is a history in the depth of her heart that she does not wish to recount. The Russian people have suffered greatly under the violent dictatorship of the former Soviet Communist Party. Twenty million people were massacred during the seventy years of its reign, not to mention how many people suffered the torments of forced labor, mental hospitals and banishment into exile. The nature of the Communist Party is just bloodthirsty and wicked, no matter in which country. This elderly lady deeply sympathized with and strongly supported Falun Gong practitioners who are being persecuted. One could say that it was probably a predestined relationship.
Senior citizens sympathize with practitioners' suffering and sign the petition
