On October 22nd 2005, the first tour of Paris to promote Falun Gong came to the last stop. Sevres Babylone is the name of a subway station, located on the intersection of Rue de Sevres and Rue de Babylone, in the south west of Paris.
French practitioners hung up banners reading “Call on the CCP to stop the persecution of Falun Gong”. Attracted to the traditional-style Chinese music specially composed by practitioners, people took away leaflets and signed their names in opposition to the persecution. For people living in democratic countries, it’s very difficult to accept the inhuman atrocities committed by the Chinese Communist Party.

One man asked, “What do you think about the Chinese Communist Party?” A practitioner answered him, It’s the CCP who persecutes Falun Gong. He immediately took a pen to sign his name on the petition sheet and said, “I object to Communism. I support you!”
There were many people who wanted to understand the truth of the persecution more fully. One member of a non-governmental organisation, passing by our activity site, asked lots of questions talked to practitioners for a long time. In the beginning he didn’t know anything about Falun Gong at all, but after talking with practitioners he could understand the details of the persecution and its background.
A plain-clothes police officer in charge of security for this activity had talked at length with practitioners previously. Offering his understanding and support for our campaign this police officer frequently came over and chatted with us.

This project to tour Paris and let the French people know about Falun Gong and the persecution began in April, 2005. It was organised by French practitioners who spent their holidays to let people in twenty regions of Paris know the truth. Many people have learnt about the persecution this way and French practitioners will make every effort to launch further campaigns to let all people in France have a chance to learn about this brutal persecution in China..
