People signed the petition to support Falun Gong and the movement to quit the CCP
It was the coldest day so far this winter with a biting wind. Speaking via a loudspeaker about the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and the mass withdrawals from the CCP, practitioner Sinikka made public the murderous nature of the Chinese Communist Party and its brutal persecution of Falun Gong, urging people to choose a bright future for themselves because the heavens are about to eliminate the CCP. Other smiling practitioners and volunteers sincerely offered passersby leaflets about the Nine Commentaries and the CCP's organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. Parents with babies in strollers, young couples, and families signed one after another to support the movement to quit the CCP and end its persecution of Falun Gong.
The Chinese people who passed by that day responded very positively. Accepting the Nine Commentaries and a special newspaper on quitting the CCP, they also learned more facts from practitioners.
Offering a young Chinese lady some informational material, practitioner Xiao Wang asked her whether she knew that 45 million had already quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. She said, "Yes, I quit as well." Another young lady also talked with Xiao Wang for a long time. It was the first time that she had ever seen the Epoch Times newspaper and found it interesting. She had not joined any CCP affiliated organizations but her parents might have. She promised to show them the material.
Practitioner Ms. Jiang said, "Since the Nine Commentaries was published four years ago, I have been distributing it through various channels and urging people to quit the CCP. First it was friends and family, classmates, colleagues. Later, via the Internet and telephone, I clarified the truth and urged people in the Chinese mainland to quit. I also urged people to quit in person at tourist attractions, at events to promote Falun Gong, in front of the Chinese Embassy, and in the street where I met people by chance. In the past few years I have helped nearly a thousand people to declare their renunciation of the Party on the Epoch Times website. I feel very strongly that more and more Chinese people have read the Nine Commentaries and learned the truth. It has become easier and easier to ask people to quit. In the beginning I was often abused and humiliated by those who were deceived. Nowadays, most quit with a few words of encouragement. Also, I often hear such words as, 'You've been working hard!' and 'Thank you very much! I will remember that Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!'"
In four years, the Nine Commentaries has been translated into many languages and spread far and wide, both inside and outside of China. Over 45 million Chinese people around the world have quit the CCP, awakening Chinese people worldwide and Westerners of different races, countries, and different languages. Not only did the kindhearted Finns actively accept the materials to learn the truth, many also helped to support those Chinese who have quit the CCP and are trying to end the persecution of Falun Gong.
At the event that day, some Finns took the materials themselves and asked for one more for their friends. Having received the leaflets, some talked with practitioners and volunteers and did not leave until after they were given an English copy of the Nine Commentaries newspaper.
With a baby in a stroller, Mr. Antti came up to the stand to sign the
petition. He said to practitioner Anna, "It is very important that you
explain the truth to the Finns. You should contact the Finnish government and
MPs so that they will see more than the economic situation with China. They
should say 'No' to the CCP's persecution." He added, "In history,
the Finns knew that the Soviet Union was bad. People should know about the evil
nature of the CCP. Well done!"
