According to people from Mainland China who went abroad, the tour guides and local guides claimed that Falun Gong practitioners who display picture boards and hand out truth clarification materials are hired, and these tour guides also claimed that they were paid for doing this. Some people believed these lies, and this caused misunderstandings. These problems happened in Europe, Macao, Hong Kong and other areas.
We have learned that tour guides from Chinese tour agencies are required to slander Falun Gong by their superiors, asking them to claim that practitioners who do truth clarification work overseas are paid to do so. From this we can see how Jiang Zemin's faction and the CCP use lies to slander Falun Gong.
We have come so far in the Fa rectification. Falun Gong practitioners are very pure and unselfish during the process of validating Dafa and clarifying the truth. Practitioners inside Mainland China and practitioners overseas have made a lot of efforts, and have overcome unthinkable difficulties. It is so evil that this fact has been distorted in order to deceive the Chinese people, and we must find a way to expose this evil.
Earlier there was an article on Clearwisdom.net called "Touching Scenes on Union Square in Manhattan" (http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2005/3/7/58230.html). It describes how a person from a human rights group on Union Square thought practitioners received money from the U.S. government to come there to clarify the truth of Falun Gong in New York. To clear up this misunderstanding, practitioners picked up the microphone and one by one talked about why they came and what kind of difficulties they had overcome to be there. Their sincere words touched everyone.
After reading this article, I was deeply touched. I realised that whether it was in China or outside of China, the spirit, acts, words and experience of every practitioner who clarifies the truth displays the most vivid and real truth of Falun Gong. This makes others believe them.
The tourists on private tour or on official visits from Mainland China are not allowed to talk to Falun Gong practitioners or take any truth clarification materials, so they often do not dare to contact practitioners or listen to the truth about Falun Gong. To expose these lies about money and manpower, we need to talk to them. We can tell them directly that they should not believe these lies. Falun Gong practitioners do not take money from any government or organisation. We pay our own expenses when we go places to clarify the truth about Falun Gong. We want people to understand Falun Gong, so that together we can stop the persecution in China. We face many difficulties to clarify the truth, no matter it's the cold winter, hot summer or in windy and rainy weather. We should let these tourists feel the compassion and purity of Falun Gong practitioners so that their doubts and misunderstandings will disappear, and then they will want to know the truth and the people from Mainland China will not lose this precious opportunity to be saved.
At the same time, practitioners from mainland China need to send righteous thoughts to eradicate those lie that slander Falun Dafa, so that we can work together to do a better job to clarify the truth and save people. This is my own opinion as a reference for fellow practitioners.
