(Clearwisdom.net) On Saturday September 5, 2009, Falun Gong practitioners from Ulm and Augsburg held an Information Day activity in Augsburg, in southern Germany, to call for an end to the persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). There were many people in the city center since it was the weekend and a fine day. Many stopped in front of the information desk and displays and carefully read the information on the posters. Quite a few talked to the practitioners.



Passersby are concerned about Falun Gong and the CCP persecution

Such a good practice should not be persecuted

When a practitioner handed one man a leaflet, the man took it and said, "I know Falun Gong is a good practice. I have Zhuan Falun and two other Falun Gong books at home."

When asked where he had heard about Falun Gong, he said that he had been to China in 1993 and 1994 and had learned about Falun Gong by accident. Later, he ordered Falun Gong books and read them at home. He regretted that he was so preoccupied in his daily life that he had not truly begun to cultivate. This time, he asked for the practitioners' contact information and said that he would contact local practitioners while in Augsburg.

When talking about how practitioners are being brutally persecuted by the CCP, the gentleman said, "Such a good practice has been subjected to inhuman persecution. That is absolutely not right." He believes that truth will ultimately prevail in the world.

More people should learn about the persecution

A woman saw the informational displays and was drawn by the content, wanting to find out more. When she saw the Falun emblem and asked what it meant, a practitioner explained to her that it is a symbol of the Buddha School, which has had a long history. The woman said that she felt a kind of peaceful, calm energy emitting from the emblem.She said that she found it hard to understand why such a good cultivation practice that brings people happiness and physical health was suppressed in China. After hearing about its hypocrisy, jealousy, and cruelty going on there, she said she was disgusted with the CCP's way of doing things. She also said that she knew that many Christians were also victims of the CCP persecution.

She said that she would talk to her friends and family about what she had seen, so that more people would know about Falun Gong and the persecution. She hopes that the irrational persecution will end soon.
