On May 19th, Falun Gong practitioners held activities in the centre of Brussels, the capital of Belgium, to expose the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) brutal persecution of Falun Gong and its corruption of morality. The event called for an end to the persecution.
Exhibits in this event included graphics of persecuted practitioners as well as a full length French version of the Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China, a report published by independent investigators David Kilgour, Canadian MP and former Secretary of State for Asia-Pacific, and David Matas, international human rights lawyer. Matas condemned organ removal from unwilling Falun Gong practitioners as 'a form of evil we have yet to see on this planet', causing sensation and concern.
Brussels is the headquarters of the European Union as well as the political seat of the The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Dutch and French are the two official languages in Belgium. In order to meet the demand for information in various languages, practitioners laid out on the table persecution reports, Falun Gong leaflets, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, etc. in English, Chinese, French, and Dutch. On another side under the banner of “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance”, practitioners demonstrated Falun Gong exercises in unison.
As usual the activities attracted a great deal of attention from passers-by. Recently, however, more people talked to practitioners about how to stop the evil and what they could do to effectively help ending the persecution.
A western lady who appeared to be well-educated talked with practitioners for a long time. Her inquiries were very detailed, including what Falun Gong is, why the CCP persecutes, etc. Finally, she even offered financial help. Practitioners explained thoroughly, saying, “The purpose of these kinds of activities is to expose the CCP’s lies. At the moment, using the huge market of China as economic bait, the CCP tries to control or coerce western countries into giving up their principles and turning a blind eye on the CCP’s tyranny. You can write to your government calling for action to demand the CCP to respect human rights and to stop the persecution.” Practitioners added, “Some Chinese media that have the courage to expose the CCP’s brutality need this kind of financial support.” In the end the lady took the material and said, “Thank you for telling me the truth. I condemn the evil’s atrocities.” Practitioners thanked her sincerely.
After seeing graphics of the persecution, a young lady walked up to practitioners with similar questions and requests. Practitioners told her, “We do not accept cash. What we need, however, is your understanding and help to support us in ending the persecution. You can tell more people.” Taking leaflets with information about Falun Gong websites, the lady promised that she would tell all the people she knew and more about the persecution happening in China.
Having learned the truth about the persecution, a college student from Germany said emotionally, “I can not accept the fact that such atrocities could take place in our modern era of upholding democracy and freedom. Why have I not heard about it before? I am a member of the Student Union in the University. When I return, I will tell my fellow students about this persecution so that we can voice condemnation together.” She wanted to know more about the truth. Practitioners told her, “You can get in touch with Falun Gong practitioners in Germany who can help you to obtain leaflets in German.” Noting contact details, she promised that she would get in touch as soon as she got back.
Having watched graphics of the persecution and the peaceful exercises, a gentleman said to practitioners earnestly, “You are doing great. The persecution will be stopped if the evil crimes are exposed and everyone learns the truth about the persecution. The evil will be eliminated.”
Many more people asked for material after seeing the photos, saying they want to know more about Falun Gong. They signed the petition to stop the persecution.
The event also took place at a Chinese tourist hot spot. During the event some Chinese tourists came over to talk to practitioners. A middle-aged couple commented, “We have seen most of your leaflets in China already. The CCP has just recently tightened control of access to web contents. It’s not easy to get around the censorship. We very much would like to continue reading your news.” They added, “Having got to know Falun Gong, we want very much to learn the practice. Do you have any tutorials?” When practitioners urged them to quit the evil organisations of the CCP, they replied, “In the past we were not from the right class of families. In those crazy times, we did not qualify to join any of their organisations but rather had to work on farms to be re-educated.” They took practitioners’ contact details so as to obtain the software to breakthrough the internet censorship. Many Chinese people took leaflets and quietly listened to practitioners’ explanation.
One practitioner said, “Things are different from a few years ago. Many Chinese have learned the truth about the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong and the CCP’s lies. They have the courage to speak out the truth. Those who do not want to be mixed up with the CCP have voluntarily quit the CCP organisations in droves. Up till now more than twenty million Chinese have renounced the CCP. Of course there are still a few who do not know the truth or refuse the truth based on lies fabricated by the CCP.” Another practitioner said, “What I do not understand is that, having suffered from a few decades of persecution from the CCP’s various political movements, some elderly Chinese have already forgot about how evil the CCP is after only a few years of peace.” Her sincere wish was for all the Chinese people to ready the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in order to learn why the CCP persecutes Falun Gong, why it repeatedly persecutes Chinese people. Heaven is eliminating the CCP. Only those who quit the CCP organisations will be guaranteed safety. Practitioners promised to follow the principles of “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance” to spread the truth to more and more people until the end of the persecution.
