(Minghui.org) Following a rally held at City Art Gallery on April 25, 2015, Falun Gong practitioners marched through downtown Vancouver, passing the famous Five Sails Restaurant patronized by numerous tourists visiting from China. The march ended in Chinatown.

The march further publicized the theme of the rally, marking the 16th anniversary of April 25 peaceful protest by Falun Gong practitioners in Beijing, and was also a celebration for the 200 million people who have withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) since 2004.

Messages on the banners carried in the march encouraged and empowered watching Chinese tourists. Some of them were happy to renounce their memberships in the Party after a brief conversation with practitioners, who volunteered to help them register their withdrawals.

“More Chinese Tourists Are Aware of Party Brutality”

Ms. Yu, a Falun Gong practitioner who is a volunteer for the Service Center for Quitting the CCP, talked to spectators along the parade route. She said she helped several Chinese tourists quit the Party after she briefly explained to them the meaning of doing so. They were happy to do so.

Ms. Yu visits tourist attractions in downtown Vancouver about four to five times per week, where she talks to Chinese tourists about the persecution of Falun Gong and quitting the Party.

She said that more and more tourists have been aware of the brutality in persecuting Falun Gong, and more people have seen clearly the Party's evil nature. They are no longer afraid of the Party, and proactively renounced their memberships in Party organizations.

She said she can help more than a dozen people register their resignations from the Party within an hour.

“It's Time to Quit the Party, and It Can't be Delayed Any Longer”

Many people who had hesitated before made up their minds to renounce their membership in the Party after what they heard and saw from the rally and parade.

Ms. Cui, another volunteer for the Service Center for Quitting the Party, shared her experience of helping a Chinese couple she met in Chinatown quit the Party. She said that she told the couple that the number of people who have renounced the Party memberships has exceeded 200 million. The husband murmured while listening to her: “It seems that it's time to quit the Party. It can't be delayed any longer.”

It turned out that the couple had discussed quitting the Party but had not made up their minds. They finally had an opportunity to get it done with the help of Ms. Cui. They were delighted and felt relieved.

Ms. Cui said that many Chinese tourists shared their view.
