Greece: Falun Gong Practitioners Distribute Informational Flyers to Governmental Agencies

Falun Gong practitioners in Athens, Greece distributed flyers and explained the facts about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of the practice to government officials and staff in several ministries on June 26 to July 3, 2014. The ministries included the Ministry of Health and Welfare, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Minister of the Interior, Public Administration and Decentralization, Ministry of Development, and the Ministry of Culture.

The practitioners went to the Ministry of Health and Welfare to distribute flyers during rush hour at office closing time on June 26. Officials and staff there accepted the flyers, and many immediately read the information.

The day was hot, with temperatures reaching 100° F (38° C) as the practitioners reached the Ministry of Justice. They explained the facts to a gate guard and police, who were surprised and allowed the practitioners to distribute flyers to staffers of the ministry in the entry area. Many staffers stopped their cars and rolled down windows to accept the flyers. The gate guard later came to give the practitioners bottles of cold water.

The practitioners went to the Ministry of Development on June 30. They talked with the gate guard about Falun Gong and the CCP's live organ harvesting crimes. Hearing about Falun Gong, he said, “I practice martial arts. What is the benefit of practising Falun Gong?” The practitioners answered his questions and welcomed him to a local practice site. He helped practitioners distribute flyers to ministry staffers during the office closing time. He also asked his colleagues to read the flyers. Some practitioners distributed the flyers to the drivers who were stopped at the traffic lights. Many people read the flyers upon receiving them.

At the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the gate guard told the practitioners that staffers there had varying schedules, and that she would like to help distribute the flyers. She gave the flyers to a few diplomats who were chatting outside. The practitioners talked with a diplomat about Falun Gong. The diplomat said that the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong was an act of evil.

The practitioners later went to a Chinese restaurant across the street. The owner asked, “Is this a Falun Gong flyer? I like it. Please give me more informational materials. The Party will stop at nothing. I hate it. I agree with the Falun Gong principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” He renounced CCP affiliated organizations on the spot.

The practitioners went to the Ministry of Culture during office closing time. Many officials and staff accepted the flyers and read them on the spot.

A lady from the Ministry of Culture said, “Too horrible. I can't imagine that such a terrible thing is occurring in China!” An elder man said, “I planned to donate my organs to any patients who need them after my death. But I see live organ harvesting in China. Too horrible! It is unimaginable.”
