Dutch Falun Dafa practitioners hold a Falun Gong photo display at the Peace Palace in The Hague every Sunday. The Peace Palace is where the International Court of Human Rights is situated, which is the symbol of the defence of human rights and justice. As it has become a famous tourist attraction in Holland, and attracts a lot of tourists from various places around the world. With the photo display, more and more people come to know about the persecution of Falun Gong. In particular, many tourists from China have overcome their fear of the Chinese Communist regime to further understand Falun Gong.

Tourists from various places around world stopped by one after another to view the photos displayed.

On the morning of October 22nd, 2006, some tour buses arrived there one after another. After viewing the photos an elderly Christian person from Spain said, “I have read the materials about Falun Gong in Spain. I really hope the persecution can be ended as soon as possible. God bless you!”

Shortly, a bus load of Korean tourists came to the spot from France. As soon as they started taking pictures in front of the Peace Palace, some of them were attracted by the beautiful music of “Pudu” and “Jishi.” They came to the display boards and talked to practitioners, “We have come across Falun Gong practitioners in South Korea. We were touched by your being steadfast in your beliefs. May I have a picture taken with you in front of the International Court of Justice?” The practitioner said, “Certainly", and he gave them some Falun Dafa bookmarks. They accepted the bookmarks happily and said that they would visit the website on the bookmark to find more information about Falun Gong.

When two female Chinese students studying in Holland stopped by, they were surprised to find two Dutch practitioners practicing Falun Gong exercises. They shrieked, “Look! The westerners are practicing Falun Gong.” Then they took out their cameras to take pictures of them one after another. One of them said to herself, “This is quite a scene at the Peace Palace.”

At midday, a German tour bus carrying a group of tourists from China arrived there. After the photo session, one of them asked a practitioner, “Why don’t you practice the exercises at home as opposed to practicing here?” “As this cultivation practice is really very good, we just would like to share it with more people.” replied a practitioner. The tourist continued: “Why do you go to the Tiananmen Square to make trouble?” “We have never made any trouble, and what we have done is nothing by explaining the facts of the persecution. The allegation of making trouble is the lie fabricated by the Chinese Communist regime.” “Why did you commit suicide?” Upon hearing the query, a practitioner handed out a VCD explaining the facts about the Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident to him immediately and said, “It is a predestined relationship that you meet us here. Please view this VCD yourself at home, and you will realise the truth.” In the meantime, seeing a woman hesitate to take the truth-clarification materials prepared by practitioners, a practitioner explained the truth to her. Finally the woman overcame her fear, and took the material at her ease.

When a practitioner was explaining the facts about Falun Gong to person from China, the person repeatedly nodded his head and whispered the practitioner, “I support you. Go on with your good work.” Although the Chinese Communist regime has been trying very hard to block information from outside, it will never bar kind-hearted people from knowing the truth. Instead, more and more people have understood the facts about Falun Gong. As a matter of fact, it is the Falun Gong practitioners’ common wish that more and more people are able to support the righteous practice.
