Luxembourg: Informing a Conference of European Ministers about Eutelsat's Decision to Cease Broadcasting NTDTV's Signal into China

On October 9th, 2008, a Conference of Ministers from 27 countries was held at the Congress Centre in Luxembourg. An activity was also held by the European Branch of New Tang Dynasty TV regarding Eutelsat's decision to stop NTDTV's signal into mainland China. Some Falun Gong practitioners participated in the activity, calling on all circles to pay attention to this matter so that people in mainland China can resume watching NTD TV and learn the truth about Falun Gong.

Banners hung on the fence opposite the Congress Centre

Just opposite the Congress Centre, a company was carrying out construction which had inevitably taken up some part of the street. In order to ensure good traffic for the participants of the Conference, the police temporarily blocked an end of the street. This provided a natural advantage for the Ministers and staff of the Conference Centre to see NTDTV's appeal banners and have a chance to receive information leaflets.

Several large banners were hung on the fence opposite the Congress Centre. In front of the fence was the only transport passage for the staff of the Conference so that all the people passing through the main front door of the Congress Centre would see the words written on the banners.

During the break at midday, many of the Conference participants came out and went across to the other side of the street for lunch. The supporters of New Tang Dynasty TV were standing at the side of the street distributing information leaflets and many participants and staff of the Conference received the flyers.

Several people were standing at the side of the street greeting each other. A Spanish Falun Gong practitioner recognised the Spanish Minister among them. He went up to talk to the Minister and briefed him with the significance of the activity of the appeals. An interpreter of the Congress Centre showed great interest to talk to a Chinese practitioner on subjects from the Olympic Games to poisonous milk powder and from the Eutelsat Incident to Falun Gong. The interpreter was shocked to learn of a series of crimes committed by the Chinese Communist Party. Before the end of the Ministerial Conference, the supporters and Falun Gong practitioners stood at different sides of the street displaying banners and distributing information leaflets so that the participants of the Ministerial Conference would have one more chance to learn the facts. More participants showed their concerns. When the Spanish Minister’s car was passing by the practitioner whom the Spanish Minister talked to, it slowed down and its window slowly opened. The practitioner passed over some information leaflets and waved a courteous goodbye to him.

At the road side a little away from the Congress Centre, the interpreter once again met the practitioner he had talked to and asked her for her contact information. He expressed his hope to keep in touch with her.
