Mr. Tang from Keelung passed by the Taipei Railway Station and heard the band's music. He quickened his steps and saw the eye-catching band playing in front of the station. A big banner worded "Stop the Persecution and Disintegrate the CCP" was hung in front of the station. Mr. Tang ran to the front of the band and shouted, "The CCP is the enemy of the Chinese people. Down with the CCP!"

Mr. Tang said he read The Epoch Times, and that the newspaper carried many reports exposing the CCP's crimes. He knew of the atrocities committed by the CCP, including organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit. He said, "Falun Gong is a great group. The CCP cruelly persecutes Falun Gong."

Ninety-seven-year-old Mr. Liu came to participate in the event, after being invited by his niece. Upon seeing the peaceful exercise practice by the practitioners on the square, he asked his niece to teach him on the spot.

Ms. Liu said, "He is my uncle. He has liked Buddhism since he was young, but he never learned to read books. He needs my help when reading other texts, but he doesn't need my help when reading Zhuan Falun. He can understand it very well."

During the gathering, practitioners also mentioned that Mr. Chen Yunlin, director of the Strait Association of China, and all CCP members should take advantage of the opportunity to quit the CCP, to ensure a safe future.

Band Play Attracts Tourists

Nearly one hundred members of the Divine Land Marching Band marched into the square in an orderly fashion at 4:00 p.m. on November 4. Their performance caught the attention of passersby, including local people returning home after work, tourists and taxi drivers. The band played "Delivering Treasure," "Falun Dafa Is Good," and other pieces.
