(Clearwisdom.net) On September 25, 2011, hundreds of thousands of people participated in the annual peace walk from Perugia to Assisi, Italy. Practitioners in Italy took the opportunity to introduce the goodness of Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) and inform people of the persecution taking place in China.

Many people felt it inconceivable that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would persecute people who believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. A practitioner who used to be persecuted in China recounted her experience, “When I was held in a detention center, from the head of the detention center to guards, they all said, 'We know you're a good person.' When I asked them why they still detained me, then, they replied, 'If we don't arrest you, the CCP will fire me from my job.' The CCP's nature is deception, evil and violence; it coerces people to do bad deeds. It forces not only Chinese people, but also foreigners, to do bad deeds. If the whole world can recognize the value of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, people will be able to clearly identify the CCP's evil nature, then the evil Party won't survive. It's what the CCP fears the most, so it has tried all means possible to suppress Falun Gong. It's the main reason that the CCP persecutes Falun Gong.”

After listening to practitioners' explanation, a gentleman in the crowd nodded and said, “I see. Can I sign the petition?” Another middle-aged woman viewed the display boards about “disintegrating the CCP, stopping the persecution.” She was delighted and said, “This approach works well, it is sure to disintegrate the CCP!” Many Italian people lined up to sign the petition to express their righteous support for Falun Gong.
