Germany: Falun Gong Practitioners in Munich Condemn the CCP for Provoking Violence in Flushing, New York (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) On June 15, 2008, Falun Gong practitioners held an activity at the Chinese Consulate in Munich, Germany, both to support the 38 million withdrawals from the CCP and its affiliated organizations and to condemn the CCP provocation of a disturbance in Flushing, New York. The purpose of the disturbance was to divert attention away from the CCP's mishandling of the Sichuan earthquake and to attempt to blame Falun Gong.

Quite a few of the practitioners had just come back from New York and talked about their experiences during the Flushing incidents, saying they all had learned very serious lessons. They were heartbroken to see those people who did not know the truth and who were stirred up by the CCP. Some students said that it was very distressing to see those who were hoodwinked by the CCP's lies and who were incited and stirred up by the CCP spies on the other side of the road crying out slogans against Falun Gong. They hoped that they could help those deceived people come to a clear understanding by clarifying the truth to them. This was also one of their goals for coming to the Consulate, as well as exposing the CCP evil lies and enabling more Chinese people to quickly wake up from the lies, to see through and cast off the CCP.
"I just love reading The Epoch Times newspaper"
Mrs. Huang talked of how on the 23rd of May she had helped hand out a special edition of The Epoch Times newspaper in Flushing. At the time there were still many people on the streets who had been deceived by the CCP, who didn't know the truth, and who wouldn't accept the special issue. A few of them tore up the newspapers. One woman even tore up the newspaper and then threw it in her face. There were also a few people idling about who surrounded her and hurled abuse at her, but because she faced them with a smile from beginning to end and kept righteous thoughts,they left after swearing at her just a few timest. Afterwards, the number of people who accepted newspapers increased. Some people walked past her, but came back to get the newspaper. A young Chinese man said to Mrs. Huang, "I just love reading The Epoch Times; it dares to speak the truth." As he walked away he said, "Do you know, I also would like to start practicing Falun Gong." He left with a smile on his face.
When Mrs. Huang went to Chinatown to buy some things, she gave the proprietor of the shop a newspaper. The owner of the shop was from Shanghai and said that she did not understand why Falun Gong had to demonstrate in the streets. But she also said, "The CCP has become the worst--they purposefully do bad things. Doing the Falun Gong exercises doesn't offend anyone. Why don't they let them practice and give them freedom of belief? What they do when they arrest them--beat them--that is not right." Mrs. Huang explained to her that the public demonstrations were to oppose the persecution. The owner accepted the newspaper and said, "I know that the CCP is terrible. Even if they (referring to the CCP-controlled overseas groups) made me attend an event against Falun Gong, I wouldn't go. I am so busy with my business, how could I have any time to waste on the CCP. The CCP is the worst."
Mr. Aurnhammer spoke about an interesting event. He and two other practitioners were carrying their luggage, preparing to return to Germany from Flushing. Just as they came up from the underground to change trains, they saw a crowd of Chinese people surrounding a Falun Gong practitioner who was handing out newspapers. The crowd was hurling abuse at him. In his heart he felt that he could not help, but he carried his luggage and walked toward them. Because he did not speak their language, he just stood there without saying a word, watching those that were hurling the abuse. All of a sudden he felt a big, powerful energy encircling him. Immediately the crowd stopped yelling, and their gaze shifted to him. About two minutes later, the crowd dispersed. The practitioner gratefully shook hands with him.
Can you tell me what Falun Dafa is?
A few practitioners went to eat in a restaurant in New York. An American woman in the restaurant, Mrs. Muller, observed the practitioners all wearing yellow t-shirts and asked a German practitioner, "Could you tell me what Falun Gong is?" The practitioner told her about "Truth-Compassion-Tolerance" and gave her a flyer with information about the CCP harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and how the CCP is trying to frame Falun Gong in Flushing. After reading it, Mrs. Muller told students, "I am very shocked and grieved. It makes me want to cry. The CCP's live organ harvesting is so inhuman." Talking about the CCP exporting violence to America, she said, "That's such a mess. America is a free country, and I am against this kind of behavior".
