Protest at the Chinese Consulate in Munich
The autumn weather was very pleasant. The leaves had begun to turn to a reddish-orange color. It looked very beautiful under the blue sky. Such good weather naturally attracted many tourists. Group after group of sightseers came to the nearby Royal Palace. When they passed the Chinese Consulate, many of them were attracted to the peaceful exercise demonstration by Falun Gong practitioners, as well as banners and poster display boards. After reading the information on the display boards exposing the Chinese Communist regime's brutal persecution of Falun Gong an elderly lady cried. Many people signed the petition to show their support for Falun Gong.
People stop by to learn about the persecution
Practitioners talk to passers-by
A lady who owns a physical therapy clinic passed on her bicycle. She paused at the site and thought a while. Afterwards she asked: "If the Chinese Communist regime's persecution has been so evil, why was it not stopped immediately? The whole world should be against such an atrocity." Practitioners told her that many governments turned a blind eye to the Chinese Communist regime's atrocities because of short-term economic interest. The persecution is still on-going in China. In New York's Flushing, some hooligans who are hired and directed by the Chinese Consulate behind the scenes openly beat, abuse and threaten to kill Falun Gong practitioners. The lady asked, "What! This happens in Flushing, in the US? How can it be possible? The USA's free democracy and would not allow these things to happen." Practitioners told her that unfortunately these terrible incidents are still occurring in Flushing. We need more people to learn the truth, to truly stand up and take action to stop the Chinese Communist regime's atrocities. The lady agreed with the practitioner's view and signed the petition against the persecution.
"What you are doing is great." A middle-aged lady who lived nearby said that she often saw Falun Gong practitioners organizing activities here. She thought that such activities would remind people about the atrocities being committed by the Chinese Communist regime. People should be concerned about these matters.
