On the 12th of July 2008 in the city centre of Dresden, Falun Gong practitioners held an activity to support the ‘World Million Signatures' campaign, calling for an end of the CCPs persecution of Falun Gong before the Beijing Olympic Games. People who understood what is going on in China eagerly came to sign, condemning the persecution.

An assistant Minister of the State of Saxony passed by and immediately signed his name on the petition form against the persecution; he had a conversation with practitioners about China’s human rights record. He showed great attention after hearing that the CCP harvested organs from living Falun Gong practitioners.

A lady spoke out when she heard about signing against the CCP persecution: ‘Persecution of Falun Gong, does it still continue?!’ She had signed a petition supporting Falun Gong against persecution some years before, and felt very sorry when she heard of the CCP’s persecution is lasting nine years till now.

Two elderly people from Taiwan, who have lived in the Czech Republic for seven years, came to Dresden for a tour. They saw the activity was to stop the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong and as well as just signing the petition form, they said that they noticed so many Taiwanese were practising Falun Gong when they went back to Taiwan. Falun Gong was spread very widely in Taiwan and it was so marvelous. They also said the reason that Taiwan people don’t like being unified by the CCP was that they don’t want to change to a centralised dictatorial regime from a democratic society. They also expressed that the democracy in Taiwan is a mirror to be shown to people in Mainland China. To tell people in Mainland China, we Chinese could also live in a free environment and we were also able to create our own free society. We wouldn’t die without the CCP.

A German girl who had been living in Zejiang, China, for two years and had just returned to Germany, could speak very fluent Chinese. She said that in China there were many people who were not content with the CCP. But they only talk to friends and family privately. Speaking publicly like in Germany is not possible. She showed her interest in Falun Gong, for she heard of too many different voices against Falun Gong. She wanted to know what Falun Gong was. She stayed in front of the information desk for a long time, read lots of material and listened to practitioners’ detailed explanation. At last, she said, "Now I am very clear, I support you".

A German man shouted "I will never sign" when he learned about the petition. But when he was told of the purpose of the petition he said, "Well, for human rights and for you, I will sign my name this time".

Another young man listening to music with earphones passed by. He suddenly took off the earphones when he saw practitioners kindly asking him and said, ‘Sorry, could you say it again?’ He solemnly signed his name on the petition form after heard the whole thing.
