The police officers on patrol were attracted to Falun Gong display boards. They had not heard about the persecution, and were especially shocked by the brutality of the state-sanctioned organ harvesting. The officers asked detailed questions about Falun Gong and the persecution. They each accepted Falun Gong fliers and thanked the practitioners for the information.

On the same day, a lone local practitioner held a vigil at the Chinese consulate in Gdansk, Poland. He placed a few Falun Gong banners along the walkway, and passed out flyers to tourists and local residents.

Before starting the one-person candlelight vigil, he put a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in the consulate's mailbox. He sat there quietly for three hours.

His peaceful protest touched many people, including the police officers, who took photos of him. Many cars honked expressing their respect. A taxi driver invited the practitioner to his car for a cup of hot tea. Many bicyclers stopped by and sent their blessings.
