Falun Dafa practitioners in Franconia, Germany, held an event in Nuremberg on September 25, 2021 to raise awareness of the decades-long persecution of practitioners in China. Many passersby stopped to chat with practitioners and signed the petition that calls for an end to the persecution.

The information day was held in Lorenzer Platz in front of St. Lorenz Church in the city center. It is the most prosperous and busy area in Nuremberg, with a constant flow of people passing by. Local residents come here for shopping and leisure, and St. Lorenz Church is a popular tourist attraction. The melodious music and gentle movements as practitioners demonstrated the Falun Dafa exercises attracted many people to stop and watch.
Many people, after reading the words on the banner, went straight to the booth and signed the petition to stop the persecution and organ harvesting. Some people listened as practitioners explained the facts in greater detail, and then signed the petition.
The Persecution is Horrifying
Janos, an older German man, listened as a practitioner explained the persecution in China. He asked for a flyer and left. He returned about an hour later, went straight to the practitioner, and said, “I read your flyer very carefully. I want to sign to support you. The persecution of Falun Dafa should be stopped. Today’s world is too chaotic and morals are extremely corrupt. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is so good!”
Reiner, a young German man, said he was attracted by the Chinese words on the banner. He explained that he loves Chinese culture very much. He studies Chinese in his spare time and plans to travel around China by bicycle. He happily read aloud “Dafa is good” in Chinese, then asked a practitioner what Falun Dafa is. When he learned that Falun Dafa is being cruelly persecuted in China, he was shocked, “I have heard from time to time that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecutes human rights. That is one of the reasons that my plan to travel around China by bicycle kept being delayed.” He said, “I hope that China will get rid of the CCP soon. I hope I can travel freely around China soon.” He signed the petition.
Christian, a German mathematician who teaches at a university in Berlin, stopped by the booth and said to a practitioner, “I know about Falun Gong. I often see you in front of the Chinese Embassy in Berlin. I think you are all good people, very righteous. The CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong is horrifying.” He told practitioners that he read the Kilgour-Matas report on the organ harvesting in China, but he didn’t know what he could do to help.
The practitioner said that trickles of water eventually become a sea. When more people stand up and say “no” to the CCP, justice will prevail and the CCP will collapse. Christian agreed and signed the petition. He said, “Yes, I want my voice to join this torrent. I hope that German politicians can hear our voices too. This cruel persecution must be stopped immediately. I hope all Western countries will stand up to defend justice, morality, and human rights, and say no to the CCP!”
Background: What is Falun Dafa?
Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) was first introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in Changchun, China in 1992. The spiritual discipline is now practiced in over 100 countries and regions worldwide. Millions of people have embraced the teachings—which are based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance as well as five gentle exercises—and experienced uplifted health and well-being.
Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), perceived the spiritual discipline’s growing popularity as a threat to the CCP’s atheistic ideology and on July 20, 1999, issued an order to ban the practice.
Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 22 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. More have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.
There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply the organ transplant industry.
Under Jiang’s personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organization with the power to override the police and judicial systems and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Dafa.
