(Minghui.org) "Well done!” said a German woman to the practitioners. “The Square is packed with tourists who came to Munich to celebrate Oktoberfest, so you picked the perfect time and place to expose this evil monstrosity called the CCP!”

On September 28, 2013, Falun Gong practitioners in Germany gathered in Marlene Square, Munich, to clarify the truth, collect petition signatures, and draw attention to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) crimes of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.

Passersby learn about Falun Gong and sign a petition calling for an end to the persecution in China

People who already knew about the Chinese regime’s persecution of Falun Gong walked over to the practitioners' booth and immediately signed a petition to show their support. Many people thanked the practitioners for their ongoing efforts to expose the Party's crimes against humanity.

"It's really shocking," said a woman after signing the petition. "I hope Europe will pay more attention to this. I also hope that peace will one day reign in China and the Chinese people will really know what it means to be free.”

Before leaving, she took some informational materials for her brother who works in China, then wished the practitioners success in their endeavors.

A Bulgarian man living in Germany said he understood how a Communist regime could persecute innocent people, as he, too, had lived under communist rule in his country.

Many Chinese tourists talked with the practitioners and asked for informational materials about Falun Gong and the persecution. A lot of Chinese people said that someone had helped them quit the CCP when they were back in China.

One Chinese tourist quit the Communist Youth League right then and there. He said that he wanted to be free from any association with the Party and its evil deeds.

By day's end, more than 400 people had signed the letter of appeal to the United Nations Human Rights Council, calling on the Chinese regime to stop persecuting Falun Gong.
