Calling upon the German government and people to pay attention to the persecution of Falun Gong
Practitioners held banners which read “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and “Bring Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing, and Zhou Yongkang to Justice.” Many local citizens talked to the practitioners. Some of them accepted truth-clarifying materials and signed the petition calling on the German government to help stop the persecution. A gentleman said that the Chinese Communist Party is worse than the Nazis were.
Mr. Chen, the organizer of the activity, said, “'Bring Jiang, Luo, Liu, and Zhou to justice' is the message that we try to pass on to the Chinese government officials in Li Keqiang's group. We want the murderers who have been involved in the persecution to know that we will track them down no matter how long it takes.”
