Righteous Force Growing and Evil Trend Declining in Flushing
(Clearwisdom.net) The Service Center for Quitting the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) in Flushing, New York has resumed operation in front of the Public Library this week and four more centers have been added. The CCP's attempt to drive the center out of Flushing by instigating mob attacks has failed. Volunteers at the Service Center for Quitting the CCP and Falun Gong practitioners actively clarifying the truth in Flushing have reported that the situation is improving. More and more people have stepped forward to support Falun Gong and condemn the mobs. Those who verbally attacked Falun Gong have had to restrain themselves.
Ms. Mao, a volunteer at the Service Center, said that fewer people have attacked Falun Gong and more and more are accepting the Epoch Times newspapers these days. Some had already gotten the paper from somewhere else, and only took the materials they hadn't yet read. Some people took the initiative to read the Epoch Times from newspaper stands. People continued to come to the center to announce their quitting of the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Xu has been participating in the truth-clarification activities in Flushing, and experienced the change in the last few days. There used to be incidents of mobs attacking Falun Gong practitioners near Gold City Supermarket. A new Service Center for Quitting the CCP was established there on June 4, and things have changed quickly. No attacks have occurred since then. Mr. Xu overheard vendors chatting, "How do you quit the CCP? What paperwork does it take?" On his way from the Post Office to the Public Library, Mr. Xu heard two men talking about quitting the CCP. One said, "It said that 37 million people quit the CCP. Is it true?" The other one said, "It looks like it is so."
Besides Falun Gong practitioners and the volunteers, the policemen on duty to protect Falun Gong practitioners have felt the change too. On June 3, a policeman commented to practitioners that it was a nice day. People smiled. Everything seemed to be normal again. The policeman on duty the next day said the same thing.
Mr. Xu said that the most remarkable change is that more and more people have stepped forward to support Falun Gong.
Recently, when a deceived Chinese person cursed Falun Gong loudly while passing the Service Center in front of the Post Office, another passerby, with a Taiwanese accent, sternly stopped him. He said, "Has Falun Gong offended you? The CCP has lied to you for so long. How come you still believe it?" The person who had cursed left, dejected.
A similar exchange took place in front of the Public Library. When a woman hysterically insulted a Service Center volunteer, another woman who happened to pass by immediately rebuked her and showed support for Falun Gong.
Ms. Mao witnessed several incidents of people supporting Falun Gong and condemning the mobs. Two CCP agents cursed Falun Gong at a service center on Monday. Another man argued with the men and said that Falun Gong was great. He said, "Though I don't practice Falun Gong, I understand it..." Two more people joined him and denounced the agents. They said, "If you think the CCP is so good, why don't you go back to China? Why do you stay in the U.S.?" They drove the agents away.
Those who have been attacking Falun Gong no longer sound as arrogant as before. On June 3, the Epoch Times published pictures of the attackers and announced plans to bring the case to the American government and FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation). The CCP agents were greatly deterred. When Ms. Mao was distributing the paper at a subway station on June 4, she saw a woman looking for the June 3rd edition anxiously. Ms. Mao noticed later that the woman was one of the attackers whose picture had been published. It appeared that the woman was afraid after finding out she was exposed.
Mr. Wang Zhiyuan from the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) said, "A man came to the Service Center on the morning of June 4. He said he had been deceived. He actually wasn't opposed to Falun Gong, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, or quitting the CCP. He had been deceived by the CCP and influenced by others and thus participated in the attack on Falun Gong practitioners. Now he realized he was wrong. He hoped he would be forgiven and his picture would be taken out of the Epoch Times."
