On June 7th, 2007, German Falun Gong practitioners held a peaceful protest in Paris Square in front of the Brandenburg Gate to remind visiting Chinese leader Hu Jintao that the end of the persecution of Falun Gong should be the priority of the Chinese government.

The leaders and delegations attending the G8 Summit stayed at the Adelon Hotel next to the Brandenburg Gate, including Hu. They had to drive around Paris Square when they went in or out of the hotel. Members of the delegations focused their attention on the banners which read ‘Falun Gong’ and ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’.

It was a clear day and there were many tourists in Paris Square. They took photos of practitioners doing the Falun Gong exercises. After they read the posters on the ground about the Communist Party’s persecution of Falun Gong and the publication of the Epoch Timnes newspaper's editorial, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, they were indignant at the Communist Party’s atrocities.

After hearing the truth, people expressed their compliments for Falun Gong’s principles of ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’. After reading a banner, a German couple told practitioners excitedly, ‘Please do believe me that a world of “Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance” will come eventually and the world will become very beautiful’. Then practitioners said they wanted to pass their words to others and asked for their name. They said, ‘Our name is Marx, but please be sure that it is not the same one as ‘Karl Marx’.
