German political candidates and their staff set up campaign booths in their respective cities, each Saturday in September, in a lead up to the country's 2013 general parliamentary elections.
In order to raise awareness about the brutal 14-year persecution of Falun Gong (Falun Dafa) in China, practitioners in Hamburg, Hanover, Bremen, and parts of Hildesheim, set up informational tables near the politicians' booths, demonstrated the Dafa exercises and talked to people about the persecution. In order to expose the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) crimes of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, the practitioners also staged a simulation of the live organ harvesting.
The practitioners also circulated a global petition launched by Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH), which condemns the CCP's practice of harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners
The practitioners handed each political candidate and their aides informational materials and asked them to sign the petition form.

Passersby learn the truth about the persecution
Three young people watched the practitioners simulate an actual live organ harvesting. A practitioner told them that state-run hospitals in China are removing organs from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners, while they are alive and without administering anesthetics.
The girl asked hesitantly, "Is Falun Gong good?” When she learned that the Chinese regime planned and executed the self-immolation hoax in Tianamen Square, as a pretext to persecute Falun Gong, she let out a deep sigh. Then she and her two friends carefully signed their names and addresses on the petition forms.
“Those who practise [Falun Gong] will not lie and cheat like the CCP does”
A practitioner overheard two young boys talking as they picked up some fliers from the practitioners' informational table. “If everyone behaves according to Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance, like Falun Gong practitioners do, how can the CCP stand for that?” said one boy.
“People who practise Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance will not lie and cheat others like the CCP does,” his friend nodded in agreement.
After a 76-year-old wheelchair-bound woman listened to a practitioner tell her about the Party's practice of forced organ harvesting, she immediately signed the petition.
She later returned with a friend and said, "I was deeply shocked to find out that labor camps are involved in live organ harvesting. I brought my friend over to sign the petition, too."
"There are so many innocent people who are being put into prisons without a fair trial, only later to have their organs removed, while they're still alive," exclaimed Ditmar, a 20-year-old Bremen resident.
"Even though people nowadays are too busy to spare five minutes, you practitioners really need to collect as many signatures as you can. Anyway, the whole human race bears the shame of live organ harvesting. It is something that never should have happened.
“However busy people are, they should at least stop and learn more about this urgent matter. If they only have one minute to spare, they should sign the petition condemning this persecution!"
Ditmar then picked up two blank petition forms and said that he would ask his family and friends to sign, too.
People thank practitioners for exposing the CCP's crimes
Due to the practitioners' ongoing efforts to clarify the facts, people in Germany are gaining a deeper understanding of Falun Gong and why it is being persecuted in China.
Some passersby ask, “Isn't it true that live organ harvesting is taking place in other parts of the world?” to which the practitioners reply: "You are right. It is happening elsewhere in the world, but only in China is it occurring on such a large scale.
“The Communist Party is using the country's police and armed forces, state hospitals, and the entire prison and court system to pull off this crime against humanity. Their aim is to turn a huge profit."
A man asked the practitioners, “Why does the Chinese regime directly target Falun Gong practitioners as its prime source of organs?” A practitioner explained, "When people practice Falun Gong, they quickly reach a state of optimum health, thus they become prime candidates for organ transplantation."
Almost everyone who learns the truth sincerely thanks the practitioners for their ongoing efforts to expose the CCP's lies and its crimes against humanity.
“I feel bathed in the energy given off by you Falun Gong practitioners.”
As a couple was passing by the practitioners' booth, the wife said, "This qigong school is very good; I can feel its energy." She then went up to a practitioner and said, "I feel bathed in the energy given off by you Falun Gong practitioners. What an amazing feeling.”
She later revealed that she practiced qigong while her husband was a biologist in the field of mine development.
“I feel energy streaming into my body and something turning in my lower abdominal area,” the woman said. The couple then said that they wanted to learn the Dafa exercises and also set up a practice site in Kiel.
The practitioners exchanged contact details with them, then recommended that they first read the book, Falun Gong , an introductory-level book that systematically spells out the practice of Falun Gong in plain, accessible language .
A woman walked over to the practitioners' table and said, "I often pass here and after reading your materials, I realized that the Communist regime is doing dirty and shameless things to Falun Gong."
A practitioner asked her if she would like to learn the Dafa exercises, to which she replied, “Yes, I would like to but I do not have time on Sunday." When she learned that a new practice site was offering exercise classes on Saturday, she said, "Great! I have time on Saturday."
A young couple expressed a keen interest in learning the Dafa exercises and the principles of the Falun Gong. They asked many detailed questions about the meaning of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and said that they wanted their children to understand these principles, too. They also asked where the local Dafa practice site was so that they could come and learn all of the five Falun Gong exercises.
