Russia: Telling the Facts in Moscow and Calling for an end to the Persecution

On July the 23rd, Moscow Falun Gong practitioners gathered on Arbat Street in the city centre in order to appeal to more people for help to stop the cruel persecution of Falun Gong happening in China. The practitioners used various ways to tell people the truth. For example, they expanded the banners with the words on them such as “Falun Gong”, “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance”, “The World Needs Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance”, “Stop Persecuting Falun Gong” and “More than 2776 Falun Gong Practitioners have been Persecuted to Death in China.” Nine exhibition boards were crammed with pictures and literary explanations, showing that Falun Gong has widely spread to more than seventy countries and 100 million people practise it but only the Chinese Communist Party persecutes Falun Gong. The real stories, one by one, are surprising people. Some practitioners directly distributed the material at subway entrances as well as the walkways to tell the pedestrians the truth.

A middle aged couple passed by and happily received a leaflet. They also viewed the banners and the exhibition boards. Later, they took the leaflet in their hands, stood in front of the banners and the exhibition boards, passed the camera to a practitioner and asked the practitioner to take pictures of them. They used this way to express that they would like to stand with the Falun Gong practitioners and keep this precious moment forever.

Four foreigners passed by. They viewed everything from beginning to end. The interpreter explained every exhibition board in detail and they also listened carefully. Before leaving, the practitioner gave them English leaflets and they received them joyfully.

A Chinese young person came and stood in front of the exhibition board. A child practitioner immediately gave him a leaflet, which he was pleased to receive. The practitioner talked with him and he said: “I did not know about the things described on these exhibition boards. What I previously heard and saw were all from Chinese newspapers and TV programmes. But I also thought that it was not an easy problem because there are so many people practising both in China and overseas. I’ll take this material home and read it carefully.”

A group of elementary school students came to find out more. After listening carefully to the practitioners, everyone signed their name in support of the anti-persecution campaign. After signing their names, the children were interested in the exhibition boards, reading the legends while viewing the photos. Serious and sad expressions were on their faces. It can be seen that their kind little hearts were also deeply shocked. Today, people who understand the truth came to sign to support the anti-persecution campaign in droves.
