France: Promoting Falun Dafa during the Experience Sharing Conference in Paris

During the 2004 French Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference, Dafa practitioners organised a series of activities.

A Peaceful Appeal at the Chinese Embassy in Paris

On Friday October the 29th 2004, Falun Gong practitioners staged a peaceful appeal at the Chinese Embassy in France, calling for a stop to the persecution against Falun Gong in China and the public trial of Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang. Jiang, Luo, Liu and Zhou are directly responsible for the five years of slander against Falun Gong, the incarceration of Falun Gong practitioners and the fact that more than one thousand Falun Gong practitioners have been brutally tortured to death.

Promoting Falun Dafa in the Chinese Community in Paris

On the second day, Falun Gong practitioners went to the Chinese community in Paris, introducing Falun Gong and exposing the persecution against Falun Gong in China to the general public.

There were many passers-by on the streets and a lot of Chinese accepted leaflets. To support bringing the prime culprit Jiang Zemin to justice on charges of crimes against humanity and genocide, a lot of people signed the petition. Jiang’s persecution against Falun Gong was in sharp contrast to the peacefulness demonstrated by Falun Gong practitioners. Many people were shocked in this regard.

Practitioners got together in the evening for group study and experience-sharing. This conference provided a good opportunity for the practitioners from French-speaking areas, such as France, Belgium, Switzerland, etc. to exchange experiences, so as to do better in our truth-clarification and activities to raise awareness about the persecution in the future.

The Conference

On Sunday October the 31st, the 2004 French Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference was solemnly held. Many practitioners came all the way from Switzerland and Belgium to attend the conference. This conference focused on the importance of eliminating our attachments in this period, as we not only should treat sentient beings with more compassion, but we also should deal with other practitioners with more understanding and forgiveness. In addition, Dafa practitioners also exchanged their views on how to do better the “three things” Dafa practitioners are supposed to do. The atmosphere of the conference was very peaceful and solemn.

Promoting Falun Dafa in Human Rights Square

On November the 1st, Dafa practitioners held activities and handed out leaflets in Human Rights Square near the Eiffel Tower.

Regardless of the cloudy weather, many tourists visited the square and learned about Falun Gong, as well as information on the persecution against Falun Gong in China. Two Chinese students studying in France passed by our display booth. One of them, who started to practise Falun Gong in 1998, picked up several dozen copies of French leaflets and Chinese newspapers in order to distribute them to her friends after returning to her home in China. She also planned to tell them the facts about Falun Gong.
