People support an end to the persecution of Falun Gong
Bahnhofstrasse is the busiest street in Zurich. The banner reading "Please help stop the genocide of Falun Gong practitioners" attracted many people's attention. They stopped to look at the photo display boards exposing the persecution. One after another, pictures stunned and shocked these passers-by. Many signed the petition calling for an end to the persecution to show their support.
One woman said, "I really want to help you. But the CCP is so far away.
How can I help you from here?" A practitioner replied, "You can spread
the truth of the persecution to people around you. You can also sign the
petition to show your support." She signed the petition immediately.
Another person said, "Signing the petition is good. We can express our
support from the bottom of our hearts."
When viewing photos about four Swiss practitioners arrested in Hong Kong, a woman from Hong Kong said, "I am so moved. Falun Gong is brave and extraordinary. Justice is sure to win. Please insist on the appeal. I sign the petition to support you. The persecution should be stopped as soon as possible."
Mother and son: "Chinese people have no freedom of belief"
A Taiwanese woman traveled to Switzerland with her two sons. Her sons saw the photo of Gao Rongrong being disfigured. They asked, "Mom, what happened to that lady?" The mother stepped forward and looked at the brutal photos carefully. She told them that the display was held by Falun Gong practitioners. She pointed to the display board and said, "The CCP detain Falun Gong practitioners in jails and torture them with various cruel methods. How ghastly."
Her two children asked in confusion, "Falun Gong is good. There are a lot of people practicing Falun Gong in Taiwan." The mother said, "We don't have the communist party in Taiwan. People are free to practice Falun Gong. Mainland China is ruled by the communist party. Chinese people don't have human rights or freedom of belief. Any different voice is sure to be oppressed and persecuted." Before she left with her two children, the mother asked for more material.
Chinese people withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations
Quite a few Chinese people came to ask for material as well as to look at the display. Practitioners spoke to them and exposed the persecution. One person said, "The CCP can commit any crimes." A practitioner replied, "Good and evil have their own rewards." A practitioner took out a special edition of the Epoch Times to show the Chinese people. In Guizhou, a 270-million-year-old inscribed stone was discovered, revealing six Chinese characters: The Chinese Communist Party Collapses. The CCP is sure to be eliminated, and people would withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations to save their own lives. A woman from China agreed to quit the party. A practitioner helped her do so with a pseudonym. She was also encouraged to ask her family to do the same thing. She said that she regretted joining the CCP herself and thus she opposed her family joining such an organization.
When two practitioners walked up and greeted a couple from China, they sighed and said, "It's so good to meet you. We feel that you are our family. We saw a young Chinese man just now. We greeted him but he did not acknowledge us at all. We were so disappointed. You are kind people." A practitioner replied, "We practice Falun Gong so we should treat others well." Before long, they accepted the truth-clarifying material from practitioners. They finally agreed to quit the CCP and thanked the practitioners before they left.
On that day, many Chinese students and tourists withdrew from the CCP.
