(Clearwisdom.net) On July 25, 2009, Falun Gong practitioners from Germany and Switzerland held an 'information day' in the famous tourist city of Freiburg im Breisgau, which is located in the scenic Black Forest of southern Germany. The event was to introduce local residents to the practice of Falun Gong and expose the Chinese Communist regime's brutal persecution of the practice.

Passers-by learned the truth about Falun Gong at the information desk.

A couple stopped at the the display boards exposing the torture and asked what was happening. When they learned that the various torture methods shown on the display boards have been used by the Chinese Communist regime to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, the lady almost cried and asked, "There are still such terrible things happening in this world! Why?" Her husband said to her, "Because they [Falun Gong practitioners] have their own thoughts and they don't want to be controlled by the Chinese Communist regime." His wife said, "When I saw the Tibetans being suppressed, I blamed all Chinese people and thought that Chinese people were bad. Now I know it is the Chinese Communist regime that is very bad. You Chinese people also suffer so miserably. You must keep going."

A woman from Dresden was very much in agreement with Falun Gong's principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance and was very interested in the Falun Gong exercises. She was very pleased to learn that there are also practice sites in Dresden. She took all types of materials and pinned a "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, Falun Dafa is Good" badge on her shirt.

After learning that the persecution is so brutal, an elderly lady with walking difficulties came to the information desk to sign the petition in order to show her support for Falun Gong practitioners.

Many Chinese people passed by the information desk and accepted truth-clarification materials. Some decided to quit the Chinese Communist Party, the Communist Youth League or the Young Pioneers immediately.

Many people who learned the truth said that what Falun Gong practitioners have done is great and very meaningful. Many signed a petition to condemn the persecution.
