Germany: A Christmas Gift with Best Wishes to the People of Augsburg

“As Christmas approached, Falun Gong practitioners in Augsburg, Germany, had a wish to extend a special Christmas gifts to local people,” said Mrs. Shao. “Our Christmas gifts are different from the other gifts. People in the world are always eager for beautiful things. In fact, it is a great blessing to be in contact Falun Gong.”

On December 16th 2006, it was very crowded in Augsburg. People went to town to stroll around the Christmas markets on a sunny weekend. While they passed by King Square, many people were attracted by the elegant music and peaceful exercise movements displayed by Falun Gong practitioners.

People talked with practitioners and read the poster display to find out more about Falun Gong and the human rights abuses against the practice by the Chinese communist Party

Mrs. Shao told this reporter that over the past half a year, she and other practitioners have held an activity in that area every month to expose the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) human rights atrocities. Mrs. Shao mentioned that many people are glad to get leaflets and ask practitioners for more material including the book Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party.

After learning about Falun Gong’s peaceful resistance to over seven years of persecution, as well as the practice’s popularity around the world and its principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance, people commended Falun Gong and expressed condemnation against the brutal persecution. Several people from India signed their names on the petition and were happy to see pictures on the exhibition board of Indians practising Falun Gong.

“After I saw the leaflet reading ‘Live Organ Harvesting from Falun Gong Practitioners by the CCP’, I wanted to find out what Falun Gong is and why the CCP would suppress it.” said an ethnic Chinese from Brazil, who signed the petition against the persecution. He said he has always been interested in traditional Chinese culture and plans to learn Falun Gong. “I could not put up with torture wherever it existed, because it is against human dignity. Now I have found out what Falun Gong is. However, I cannot work out why the CCP would exert such a brutal persecution against innocent, peaceful practitioners. The behaviour of the CCP is impossible and unreasonable. Thus, I will use my signature on this petition to express my support for Falun Gong practitioners.”
