On the way from Hong Kong International Airport to Lo Wu Customs, he started spreading rumors and threatening the tourists. He claimed that practitioners in Hong Kong hire many people without jobs to spread propaganda by distributing newspapers and other materials to tourists. He then threatened the tourists by saying that any tourist who listens to them or reads their materials will be considered a Falun Gong practitioner when they return to the mainland. He went on to say that whoever brings Falun Gong's newspapers and books back with them will implicate all tourists in the same tour group.
Prior to this trip, I heard some tourists from the mainland talk about their tour guides threatening them to not accept or take any newspapers they were offered by practitioners, and not to even read the displays about Falun Gong. If anyone reads them, these agents, working as tour guides, said that practitioners will videotape them and then publish it on the Internet. His or her work place in mainland China will likely find out about this, and then they will be punished. His lies caused the tourists to become afraid.
After being threatened, many of the tourists went out of their way to avoid practitioners, even though they were in Hong Kong.
