Munich: Week-Long Activities Raise Awareness of the Persecution of Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) To introduce Falun Gong and expose the persecution of Falun Gong that continues to this day in China, practitioners in Bavaria hosted activities in Munich from August 10 to 15, 2020. Many people expressed their support by signing a petition.
Information Day events were held on Odeonsplatz on August 11, on Sendlinger Straße on August 13, and on Kalsplatz on August 15. The other three days, the practitioners peacefully protested in front of the Chinese Consulate in Munich.
Physician: “Forced Organ Harvesting from Living People Is Outrageous”
Dr. Weidner is a general physician as well as a trained psychologist. She said that removing organs from a living person to sell for profit is outrageous. “It’s disgusting. I heard from a friend that the Chinese Communist regime also sanctions killing monks to get their organs, and some Westerners pay a premium price to buy the organs. We must stop this. This is why I signed the petition,” Dr. Weidner said.
Helen, a tourist from London, said she saw practitioners' activities in London and she signed the petition. “Practitioners only want to be better people. But the police break into their homes and put them in jail. The communist regime’s brutality is outrageous,” she said.
She believes that the governments of European countries need to take action, raise this topic more, and expose the inhuman crime more. Helen said that if more people openly discuss it, it will pressure the Chinese Communist Party and they won’t dare to behave recklessly.
Frederich Höke, a baker from Koln, said after signing the petition. “I think this event is proactive and people support it.
“Many politicians know the facts but they keep silent because of economic interests. But this is wrong. It’s very bad of them.”
Protests in front of the Chinese Consulate in Munich
Practitioners protested in front of the Chinese Consulate in Munich on August 10, 12, and 14, 2020. They erected large banners calling for the end of the persecution of Falun Gong in China. Many drivers raised their thumbs to show their support.
A driver parked his car on the other side of the street and walked over to sign the petition. He said he knew about the persecution and hopes the practitioners succeed.
