(Minghui.org) Many tourists from China travel to Europe around the October first Chinese holiday. Practitioners clarify the truth at the tourist destinations in Europe. The Chinese tourists get to hear the truth about Falun Gong, and many of them have quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
While practitioners are telling one group of Chinese tourists the facts, tourists from other groups usually listen, and they too will withdraw from the CCP. When they talk to individual tourists, these people usually quit the CCP right away. The tourists often talk about the crimes committed by the CCP, and they say that they no longer have any faith or hope in the CCP. Most of the tourists want a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. The tourists will go out of their way to come over to the practitioners and ask for a copy. Many of the tourists ask, “Are you Falun Gong?” As soon as they hear the reply, “Yes,” they immediately accept the truth-clarifying materials.
One tour bus stopped with a dozen well-dressed tourists in their 40s that spoke standard Mandarin. When the practitioner went over to hand out materials, the passengers started to mention the Bo Xilai case. Someone said, “Based on the crimes he committed, he should probably have been sentenced to only 15 years in prison. A life sentence seems too heavy.” Someone else said, “Bo reversed his testimony and broke the agreement he had made with the CCP leaders. The CCP leaders got very angry.” Another person said, “When Bo appealed, there was nothing he could do to change his sentence. It is not up to the court to decide.” And yet another person said, “I don't think the second trial will be public. What if he makes another spectacle of himself and the government officials?”
Then they asked the practitioner what he thought of Bo. The practitioner said, “Bo was convicted of crimes that were just not that serious. The CCP covered up the human rights crimes he committed. Bo did commit a crime when he conspired with Zhou Yongkang to seize power. But when he oversaw the harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, he committed a crime against humanity. He will have to repay this debt with his life for the lives that he killed. How many times would he have to die to make up for so many lives?” Everyone nodded.
The practitioner said, “There was a strong reaction from people overseas to what happened in China during the Bo Xilai case. Although Bo Xilai was not sentenced to death, the CCP has sentenced itself to death. The CCP covered up Bo Xilai's crimes against humanity, so he did not get the death sentence. Bo's crimes were condoned by the CCP. They cannot be separated. That is why Bo did not accept the sentence and wanted to appeal, to expose the CCP's crimes.” Everyone kept nodding.
“The Communist Party has committed countless unforgivable crimes. It could come to an end at any time and that is not an exaggeration.” Everyone was listening very closely to what the practitioner had to say and did not say a word.
“All of you seem to be government officials. Perhaps you are all Party members?” They all looked embarrassed. The practitioner said, “Please don't miss this opportunity to withdraw from the CCP. Quit as soon as possible. If the CCP really collapses, you will have missed the opportunity to withdraw from it and, ultimately, the opportunity to save yourself. People are quitting the CCP in droves. High-ranking officials, the police, and judges have withdrawn from it. Close to 150 million people have already quit the CCP. Do you think that they are ignorant and foolish people? What are you waiting for? Consider your decision based on the standards of good and evil, and your own conscience. Do you want to be eliminated with the CCP, or do you want to have a good future?”
Everyone nodded in agreement. The practitioner told them that he could help them to quit the CCP using an alias. One man said, “Oh, great. We can do it right away. I quit.” The practitioner provided aliases to those who wanted to quit. Those that had not withdrawn from the CCP came over to register. After they registered, they picked up the truth-clarifying materials and went back to the bus. When they were all back on the bus, each and every one had quit the CCP. They bowed to the practitioner and said, “Thank you! Thank you!”
One day a practitioner persuaded a few young people to withdraw from the CCP. One of them looked over and said, “That's the Party secretary of our city.” He was trying to tell the practitioner that their local Party leader was present and they were reluctant to express their ideas. The secretary, a middle-age man, was organizing things.
The practitioner walked over and said, “It looks like you are the leader of this group.” The secretary smiled and did not answer. The practitioner said, “Do you know about the Bo Xilai case?” He said, “Yes.” The practitioner continued,“The CCP charged and convicted Bo of crimes against the state. His crimes against humanity were covered up. Had he been tried for those crimes, he would have gotten a death sentence.” The secretary nodded and sighed, “It was the decision of the authorities at high levels. People in low level positions couldn't do anything about it.” The volunteer said, “But people can take care of and protect themselves. The CCP could collapse at any time. It will be too late for you to withdraw from the CCP if it collapses. The CCP will be held accountable by the laws of heaven, and anyone associated with it will also be held accountable.”
The people standing around heard this and all looked at the Party leader. The practitioner said, “They are very young and you are their leader. They rely on you and trust you.” Someone said, “He is our city Party secretary.” The practitioner said, “These people look to you as an example. If you take the lead and withdraw from the CCP, you will not only save yourself, but you will also encourage them to quit the CCP and everyone will be saved. You will be doing something far greater than you know.” The secretary laughed loudly. The practitioner continued, “I am not flattering you, nor am I making a joke. All of you will be protected and avoid future disaster if you make the right choice and they follow your example. You will be doing a very good thing. Isn't it important to save lives?” The secretary heard this and said firmly, “I quit.” The practitioner gave him an alias. He said, “This is great! This is really great!”
The practitioner told the young people standing around, “You should quit, too .” They smiled and said together, “We all quit.” Everyone on the bus quit the CCP and its youth organizations.
Before they got back on the bus, the practitioner said to the Party secretary, “Keep telling people to withdraw from the CCP. That way, more people will be saved.” He said, “Yes. I will spread the message.” The practitioner said, “When you do good things, you accumulate virtue.” “Really?” the man asked. The practitioner said, “Of course. You have power and influence. You interact with a lot of people. If you can persuade them to withdraw from the CCP, just think of the people you can save, and you will accumulate great virtue.” The secretary smiled, “Great! I will do that when I get home.” The practitioner reminded him, “Faun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He repeated it and said he would remember.
One day a tourist said to a practitioner, “We bypass the firewall to explore the Internet and know about Falun Gong. As soon as you started to talk to us, we already knew what you were talking about and we understand. But even though we know what is happening, what can we do? We have no control.” The practitioner said, “Although you cannot control the high-ranking CCP officials, you have a clear sense of what's right and what's wrong. You can make a decision that will give you a beautiful future. We are experiencing a time where people are given a choice. Everyone needs to position him or herself. Actually, the CCP could collapse at any time. It will be too late for you to withdraw from the Party once it collapses.”
Another tourist immediately asked, “What will happen if it is too late?” The practitioner said, “ If you are still a part of the CCP when the laws of the universe eliminate the CCP, you will suffer the same fate. You will give your life for the CCP. Is the CCP worth your life? Please take this opportunity to withdraw from it and ensure a safe future.” The group people immediately said, “Yes. We will quit the CCP right now. Many thanks to Falun Gong!”
A Chinese tourist from Washington, D.C., was visiting Europe and got separated from her husband. She was very anxious and kept crying. The practitioner comforted her and kept reassuring her, “Please don't worry. You can just wait here.”
She told the practitioner that she had moved to the U.S. from Taiwan at the age of 14. Although she didn't know how to write Chinese, she could still recognize Chinese characters. She pointed to the Epoch Times newspaper and said, “I like to read your newspaper. In the U.S., every Friday, even if I don't need anything from the store, I go to the supermarket to get the Epoch Times. I have been reading it for several years, and I know the truth about Falun Gong. They are a group of people who believe in Buddha and are true to their beliefs. I really sympathize and admire Falun Gong. I really hate Jiang Zemin. He began the brutal persecution of Falun Gong. He used such heinous tortures on practitioners, some that I had never heard of before. I could not bear to continue reading about it. How can the Chinese police do such bad things to so many good people; I do not understand. They also harvest organs from living practitioners for profit. I would have never imagined that such a thing could happen. Are they still human? I think they must be devils. I support you. The best way to stop them is by doing exactly what you are doing: exposing their crimes and evil deeds.”
She continued, “Other newspapers sensationalize the news, but your newspaper doesn't do that. The information in your paper is true, reliable, and not exaggerated.”
She also said, “It's easy to talk to you. After I started talking with practitioners, I found socializing with others not very interesting. You understand things at a totally different level. You always think of others first. You are truthful and kind--really good people. I was very upset a few minutes ago. No one cared or noticed that I was upset, and the tour guide disappeared. But after you said just a few words, I stopped crying. I knew when I saw you that I had met a good person. I think Falun Gong practitioners are trustworthy. As long as you are here, I am not distressed.”
The practitioner said, “We cultivate ourselves based on Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, something world needs.” The woman was deeply touched, “You are right. The world needs Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” When the woman's husband finally came looking for her, she said goodbye and left.
