The week-long car tour to raise awareness about the persecution against Falun Gong started on September 18th 2006, and continued until September 24th. The car tour travelled around nine states and passed through many cities, villages, world-renowned tourist attractions, and ski resorts. As a result of the tour, many Austrian people and foreign tourists understood the truth of Falun Gong and have learned about practitioners being cruelly persecuted in China.
Many people signed a petition supporting Falun Gong's actions against the persecution in China. In a famous Austrian vacation city, the Princess Sissi's Imperial Vacation Place, a teacher, after learning the facts of Falun Dafa, brought the entire class of students to the Falun Gong information table, asking practitioners to explain the situation to them again. Many students signed the petition.
Deputy Mayor Reisen Bichler came to the table and said to practitioners: ''It is just unbelievable. This persecution is so brutal.'' He examined the pictures very carefully, took many Dafa materials with him, and wished the practitioners success in their efforts against the persecution. A woman who works at the Premier's office said to practitioners: ''Our party needs Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. I will put your materials on the table in our office.'' The local news reporter also conducted an interview about the activity.
In each city and village, the local people were very supportive. This activity has brought the truth of Falun Gong, and the fact that it is being brutally persecuted in China, to many people in Austria.
