Germany: Introducing Falun Gong and Exposing the Persecution in Donauschingen

Every tourist who visits Donauschingen city in scenic Schwarzwald usually participates in the music festival, goes on a tour to the source of the Danube, goes to the museum see the art objects collected by the Marquis, or attends the international horse races. As in recent years, the horse racing was held in Donauschingen this year. At the same time, Falun Gong practitioners from as far away as Brussels and Geneva gathered in downtown Hanselbrunnen to introduce Falun Gong and explain China’s ongoing persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. This was the first time that such activities were held in this area. We found almost all of the people here had never heard of Falun Gong. The passersby were all sympathetic about the suffering of practitioners in China.

Because the number of practitioners who participated in the activity was more than expected, a group of them went directly to the race course in the afternoon. The practitioners received unusual assistance when they were searching for parking spaces. The gatekeeper of the parking lot read our newspaper very carefully. Later on, his superior was also attracted by the contents of the newspaper. While two practitioners demonstrated Falun Gong exercises in the square, two other practitioners provided explanations to the passersby who stopped to listen. They told the racegoers that these exercises are banned in China, and practitioners are sent to labour camps, brain-washed, or may even be subjected to torture. A lot of passersby watched the practitioners with a smile at first. After they listened to the explanations, they were shocked by the persecution that the Jiang group inflicts on Falun Gong practitioners. A man who was very reluctant to believe the facts initially took a lot of materials with him when he was about to leave. He said he would pass all the information to his friends at the Lions Club. In addition, he would contact a director of a large German enterprise, who is in charge of the Chinese Division. He wants to let her know that the products her company buys from China are made in labour camps. As a Catholic, he thinks the Buddha Fa is undoubtedly one of the most peaceful cultivation ways in the world.
