Switzerland: The People of Zurich Support Practitioners' Call for an End to the Persecution of Falun Gong (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On December 22, 2007, a group of Swiss Falun Gong practitioners held an "Information Day" in Zurich's Great Bahnhofstrasse.
The practitioners hung out eye-catching banners disclosing the CCP's organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. Various photographs depicting the persecution of practitioners in China were displayed. Many passersby knew at once that the display was about Falun Gong, because they have been seeing Falun Gong practitioners on this street every month for more than a year. On the information table were leaflets in various languages and petition forms, some calling for an end to the CCP persecution of Falun Gong, and others asking the Swiss Government and United Nations to investigate and stop the CCP's organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners.
Although it was Christmas Eve and very cold, many passersby still stopped and looked or came forward to sign the petitions to show their support for Falun Gong practitioners. Others had conversations with practitioners to learn more about the practice and about the persecution.
A man came to sign a petition, agreeing with practitioners' effort to stop the persecution. He had read about the persecution of Falun Gong in newspapers and noticed that Falun Gong practitioners only wanted to practice their belief. He realized that, although Falun Gong is not harmful to society, the CCP does not allow any group that is different from it to exist. He gave his signature to express his support.
A lady immediately opened and started reading the newspaper given to her by a practitioner. She asked for more information. Before she went away, she signed the petition calling for an end to the CCP's crime of organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners. She had not known about this heinous crime, she only knew that there was no respect for human rights in China. She thought that organ harvesting from living people was terrible--"not human behavior." Before she left, she took Chinese materials, because she was learning Chinese and also wanted to share the information with her Chinese friends.
Practitioner Ingberg mentioned that many people signed the petition because they know the persecution is wrong and should be stopped immediately.
