(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners held an Information Day at the Volkspark Friedrichshain in Berlin on May 1, 2021. Many residents have shown interest in Falun Dafa and the exercises during the pandemic and asked why the the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecutes a group of such peaceful practitioners.

Signing the petition calling for an end to the 22-year-long persecution of Falun Dafa

Brigit, an older woman, said that the persecution must end. She said the German government should support practitioners’ efforts to end the persecution.

“If we were doing what Falun Dafa practitioners are doing now, society would not be as fragmented as it is today,” she said. “We would not attack each other and would treat each other compassionately from the bottom of our hearts. This would be the most effective policy ever implemented.”

A practitioner was practicing the exercises next to Brigit, and Brigit said she felt a very strong energy field. “This is amazing, this is unbelievable,” she said. The practitioner suggested that Brigit learn the exercises.

Brigit learned all fives sets of exercises in 30 minutes, and was very happy. She told the practitioner that she would come back to practice the exercises again.

An older man told practitioners that he had lived in East Germany and was thus very familiar with communism. He said that the reason the CCP is unable to tolerate Falun Dafa is because the Party’s ideals of corruption and brutality are the exact opposite of Falun Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Forbearance-Tolerance. The man said that he had been to China during the Cultural Revolution and found everything very strange there. He said, “I could already tell back then that people’s actions and gestures were staged by the CCP.”

After reading the petition in detail, a young girl said, “People should have freedom of religion and no one should be persecuted for that. Policemen are supposed to protect the people and yet they blindly stand next to the operating table where practitioners’ organs are being harvested in China. This is too frightening. This is truly saddening for me to see how people are being persecuted by simply believing in their faith. I sincerely wish to support Falun Dafa.”

The weather was very gloomy and cloudy when the activities began, then towards the end, beams of sunlight radiated as practitioners agreed to come again next weekend and meet more predestined sentient beings.
