(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners in Milan, Italy, have been clarifying the facts and helping Chinese people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organizations in front of the Chinese Consulate in Milan for nearly ten years. Two truth clarification banners and a banner bearing a message encouraging the reader to quit the CCP have accompanied the practitioners for nearly seven years. On June 8, 2011, CCP agents maliciously damaged the banners. The most seriously torn banner reads, “The CCP Is the Chief Culprit in Persecuting Falun Gong.” Two other banners, reading, “Falun Dafa Is Good” and “Heaven Will Eliminate the CCP, Quitting the CCP to Save One's Life,” also had their corners ripped.

That morning, several practitioners held an informational activity in the front of the Chinese Consulate as usual. Short after noon, they discovered that the banner reading “The CCP Is the Chief Culprit in Persecuting Falun Gong” that hung on the Chinese Consulate fence had been cut by a sharp object, and a large area of the banner was ripped and completely damaged.
A practitioner said, “This was one of the three banners that practitioners held when they protested the visit of CCP vice president Xi Jinping to Milan on June 4, 2011. It really intimidated the CCP officials and special agents.”
Falun Gong is a legitimate organization in Italy and is protected by law. As a result of practitioners' continuous efforts to clarify the truth to the Italian and Chinese people in front of the Chinese Consulate in Milan, businesses and residents living near the consulate understand the true situation about Falun Gong. They have often offered the practitioners help, greeted them warmly, and spoken with them. The police, military personnel and plainclothes officers often asked the practitioners if anyone with bad intentions had interfered with their activities. Many Italian and Chinese people have become aware of the truth, and quite a number of Chinese people have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Practitioners in Italy want the thugs who assist the CCP persecuting Falun Gong to know that, whether they are Consulate officials or CCP special agents, they will be held accountable for all the crimes they have committed in assisting the CCP in persecuting Falun Gong.
Practitioners said that the banner will be re-hung at its original location and continue playing its role in subduing the evil. They believe that more people will become aware of the truth and more Chinese people will choose to quit the CCP organizations and have a beautiful future.
