Germany: Raising Awareness about Falun Gong in Freiburg (Photos)
(Minghui.org) On June 16, Falun Gong practitioners from Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, held an “Information Day” activity downtown, introducing Falun Gong and exposing the persecution of the practice to the public.
It was a sunny day. Many people stopped at the practitioners' booth, asking to learn more about Falun Gong, and signing the petition.
An older German lady talked for a while with practitioners. She said: “Freedom is important to everybody, but Chinese people cannot enjoy it in China. I will tell my Chinese friends about what I learned today. ” Fully aware of the ruthlessness of the Communist Party, she reminded the practitioners to be careful about their safety.
Three young ladies viewed the display boards for 30 minutes. They also asked all kinds of questions. Finally they signed the petition, condemning the persecution. They thanked practitioners and wished practitioners luck.
Many people were interested in learning the exercises. Several of them learned the exercises at the booth. A lady told practitioners that she learned the exercises from a local practitioner more than 10 years ago. She stopped practicing after that practitioner left Freiburg. She was very happy to find practitioners again, and wanted to resume practicing the exercises.
Many Chinese people passed by practitioners' booth. Some of them knew about the movement in China of quitting the Communist Party, but some of them never heard about it. After talking to practitioners, several Chinese people agreed to the quit the Party or its associated organizations.
A Chinese student was giving his mother a tour of the city. When they passed by, a practitioner recognized him. They had met a year ago. Back then, the practitioner told the student about the persecution of Falun Gong and movement of quitting the Party. The student said that he needed to give some thought to quitting the Party. Today, he also recognized the practitioner. This time, he was ready the quit the party, and his mother was also happy to quit.
Another Chinese student told practitioners that she knew about the persecution and she knew that the Communist Party's propaganda against Falun Gong is not true. “I will not allow my kids to join the communist organizations. I support your efforts of exposing the evilness of the Communist Party. You are helping to dismantle this evil power.”
