(Minghui.org) Memmingen is a small town near Baden, Germany. On November 9, 2013, Falun Gong practitioners there participated in the 14th Annual Health and Fitness Day to let more people know about the health benefits of Falun Gong meditation practice, and to expose the Chinese communist regime's ongoing persecution of practitioners in China.

“It’s very important to let more people know the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution,” said Christina, a Memmingen resident and a new Falun Gong practitioner.

Many people were visibly shocked to learn of the Chinese regime's abject cruelty in harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners—for profit in the transplant market. Some had a very difficult time believing that something this blatantly evil could currently exist on this planet.

Everyone who learned the facts signed the petition initiated by Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting, which calls on the United Nations to demand that China immediately end the persecution.

Many people commented that as a society, we have an obligation to stand up to the Chinese regime's atrocities that harm our human race.

The locals encouraged practitioners to continue their quest. One of them said: “We wish you success in ending this persecution. You are doing well!”
