Germany: Falun Gong Information Day in Titi See (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On July 5 Falun Gong practitioners organized a "Falun Gong Information Day" in Titi See in the Black Forest in southwest Germany. Practitioners hoped to raise awareness about the Chinese Communist Party's nine-year persecution of Falun Gong and to support the wave of Chinese people quitting the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations.

Titi See in the Black Forest is called the "Diamond in the Crown" and attracts tourists from Germany, Europe, and all over the world. In recent years it has become a destination for Chinese groups touring Europe, and each day quite a few Chinese tourists can be found in the area.
July 5 was a Saturday, and the weather in Titi See was calm and sunny. The boats on the lake were rented out, the parking places were full, and people were sitting in the restaurants and cafeterias.
The Falun Gong Information Day exhibition table was set up at the entrance to Titi See Lake, a square all the tourists pass through. The tourists who came to view the scenery saw the exhibition table straight away.
One bus from mainland China held a group of primary school students. When they passed the exhibition, they all looked. The adults in charge made the children leave quickly, but the youngsters' eyes were drawn to the words on the banners and display boards, and some read aloud, "Falun Dafa is good. God Bless China. The Chinese Communists' days are numbered. July is the month for the world to quit the party and disintegrate the CCP. "
The display boards that disclosed the CCP persecution of Falun Gong practitioners attracted many tourists. When they heard about the crimes happening in mainland China, they were shocked and angry. Some went to the desk to sign to support Falun Gong and stop the CCP persecution, some asked for more relevant material, some wanted to know more details, and some talked with Falun Gong practitioners to express sympathy and support. A few tourists who signed or received truth clarification materials said, "Well done!"
A tourist from the former East Germany talked with a practitioner for half an hour. He said that he was no stranger to communism, having suffered a lot because of it. He had no trouble believing that all the crimes described were done by the Communist Party--"it's not strange and there's no need to be in doubt about it. One of the Communist Party's ruling characteristics is controlling your thoughts. Then it promulgates its set of ridiculous theories, doesn't allow you to have your own thoughts, and executes a set of policies to fool the people. That is the most dangerous." He also said that he thought the CCP would crumble sooner or later: "It's just following in the footsteps of previous Eastern European communist countries. Its disintegration and its fate are assured."
Many children were accompanied by their parents. There were also student groups led by teachers and coaches. Whenever Falun Gong practitioners handed leaflets to the adults, they also gave them a beautiful bookmark printed with "Falun Dafa Is Good" or a lotus flower. The children asked for them and admired them.
When Information Day was over, the practitioners counted the remaining materials and realized that they had distributed more than one thousand different leaflets. They had also collected many signatures in support of Falun Gong and calling for an end to the persecution.
