(Minghui.org) The Frankfurt International Auto Show was held from September 14 to September 24. Local Falun Gong practitioners took the opportunity to organize various activities to raise awareness about the peaceful spiritual practice and the persecution it faces in China.

They introduced Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) and collected signatures on a petition in areas of downtown Frankfurt and outside the motor show. The petition calls for an end to the persecution in China.

The Frankfurt Auto Show has an attendance of nearly 900,000 people from all over the world. Dozens of Chinese companies participate. Falun Gong practitioners spent more than ten hours a day distributing flyers and talking with people, including many tourists from China.

Chinese Tourists Have an Opportunity to Learn the Truth About Falun Gong

More than 20 buses loaded with Chinese tourists stop in downtown Frankfurt every day. The tourists passed the location of the Falun Gong activities after they got off their buses and were faced with a large banner stating “The Party is Not China”.

Practitioners greeted the many Chinese tourists with flyers and newsletters for them to take with them.

Some initially resisted, fearing retaliation from Party officials if they accepted the flyers, but as soon as they heard the audio recording that was playing about the true story of Falun Gong, the whole group would quiet down and listen.

They learned about the Party’s biggest propaganda stunt against Falun Gong, the Self Immolation Hoax.

They learned about the 280 million people who quit the Party and its affiliates after they heard the true story. They heard about the organ harvesting atrocities from living practitioners that continue to this day.

Some smiled at practitioners to signal their understanding. Some whispered, “Thank you!” Some quickly took a copy of the newsletter and put it in their purse or bag. Some discussed with each other in low voices.

One day, three practitioners went to have lunch in a cafe, where they saw a group of more than 20 Chinese tourists. The practitioners played back their truth clarification audio recording. The tourists listened quietly for over an hour. None of them left before the end of the recording.

Practitioners patiently told every fellow Chinese they ran into, “Remember Falun Dafa is good!”

“Give Me Some Flyers. I Will Help You Distribute Them.”

The Falun Gong booth outside of the motor show was in a very prominent location. Practitioners passed out flyers in several languages and many people signed the petition calling for an end to the CCP's organ harvesting.

Some people took flyers to find out more information about the practice itself. They later returned to the booth to sign the petition. They wished practitioners good luck.

An employee of the motor show told a practitioner, “Give me some flyers. I will help you distribute them.”

Chinese Quit Communist Organizations

The first and second day of the motor show were critical for Chinese companies to attend. Practitioners took advantage of these two days to clarify facts to delegates from Chinese businesses. Many Chinese people took the opportunity to quit the Party.
