New Tourist Attractions in Rome
(Minghui.org) Thousands of Chinese tourists in Rome each day see volunteers handing out fliers telling them about Falun Gong and the persecution in China. These volunteers help tourists quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliates.
Many of the tour guides have also quit the CCP, and become supportive of the practitioners in their efforts to help more Chinese people know about the persecution.
Groups of Chinese tourists are often seen reading fliers near the columns or on the stairs of St Peter's Square in the Vatican. Some of the tour guides called the practitioners' booths “the new tourist attractions in Rome.”
“I Finally Quit, I Am So Happy and Grateful to You.”
As a middle-aged man listened to the volunteer, he said, “I knew it from the book The Nine Commentaries of the Communist Party. Every word rings true.” When the volunteer asked him if he wanted to quit the communist organizations, he said, “Yes I will. I have wanted to do this for a long time.”
When the man took an anti-firewall software from the volunteer, his wife stopped him, worried that he might get into trouble when he returned to China. The two began to argue. The volunteer told the wife, “Don't worry about him. He will be fine. How about you? Did you join the communist organizations?” The husband answered yes for her quickly and encouraged her, “Come on, quit the CCP's affiliates now!” She suddenly wasn't worried anymore and said firmly, “Yes, I quit.”
As they were leaving, the husband turned around and said to the volunteer, “I have wanted to quit for a long time, and I didn't know where to go. Now I have finally quit, and I am so happy and grateful to you.”
The Child Who Wants to Quit the Young Pioneers
A Chinese boy in his early teens wanted a copy of the flier despite objections from the adults. He told them, “I know what's going on, it's you who do not.” He asked the volunteer why he needed to quit the communist organizations, and the volunteer explained about the evil deeds the communist party has committed in China during its reign.
“In every movement the CCP started, many people have died. You are a member of the Young Pioneers and it's part of the CCP. All the CCP members will have to pay for the crimes the CCP has committed; would you want to pay for its crimes?”
The boy immediately said, “I quit!” His father sitting across from them quickly came towards them and said, “Yes, you should quickly quit. Nobody needs to be part of it!”
“This Is Virtuous!”
One time a tour guide joked to a volunteer, saying that he was so busy making money. The volunteer told him he didn't make any money, in fact, he spent his own money making the fliers.
The guide was taken aback and the volunteer continued, “If I wanted to make money, I wouldn't be here. I want to let my people know that they should quit the CCP to stay safe.” “This is what I call virtuous,” suddenly the guide changed his attitude.
From then on, every time the guide saw the volunteer, he would bring his group to him to listen to what he had to say.
“Falun Dafa Is Good!” from a Man Who Knows the Truth
One time the volunteer realized that there was a group of Chinese tourists behind him listening quietly while he was telling others about Falun Gong. When he turned around, one after another these tourists admitted to him that they had joined the communist organizations. When the volunteer asked whether they wanted to quit, many nodded.
A young man raised his arms and shouted several times, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” The young man said that many of his family practiced Falun Gong and that he knew that the practice was great. Everyone in this tour group quit the CCP and its affiliates that day.
“I Surely Do Love China.”
A manager of a travel agency accused the volunteers of “betraying China.” A volunteer told him that even officials in China know that “corruption kills China and anti-corruption kills the CCP.” He told the manager that “the CCP is not China. You can accuse me of not loving the CCP, but I surely do love China.”
“The CCP caused the unnatural deaths of 80 million Chinese people, and the former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin betrayed the country and tried to eradicate Falun Gong. This is why I am here today to tell the Chinese people to quit the CCP and help China,” said the volunteer. The manager calmed down and left quietly.
Helping a Tour Guide See the Truth
A tour guide asked a volunteer whether he had a political agenda doing what he did. The volunteer pointed to a little boy and said, “The day you enter school in China, you have to raise your hand and swear in front of the CCP's flag to give the Party your life. Communism is considered an evil ideology worldwide. Even the members of the CCP don't believe in it, but they dared to deceive little children to be faithful to it and have them do all the dirty work later. Isn't that too much?”
The tour guide agreed. The volunteer then told him, “I spend my own money and time trying to make people see what the CCP really is, is that political?” The tour guide admitted that he was wrong. He helped practitioners to convince his group to read the fliers. Most of his group quit the CCP and its affiliates.
