On September 2nd, 2007, Falun Gong practitioners gathered at a busy square in central Oslo. They displayed banners reading "Falun Gong is Good", "Stop Persecuting Falun Gong", "The World Needs Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance" as well as exhibiting display boards depicting Falun Gong’s spread across the world, as well as the persecution perpetrated by the Chinese Communist regime in China. They also distributed leaflets in various languages and demonstrated the five Falun Gong exercises. The tranquil traditional-style Chinese exercise music and peaceful exercises attracted a lot of attention. People accepted the leaflets and stopped to view the performances one after another. Some asked for further information about the cultivation practice and the on-going persecution. The practitioners talked with many people about topics ranging from the Chinese Communist regime’s persecution of Falun Gong and inside stories about the Chinese regime harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s intrinsic evil nature and the necessity of calling for an end to the persecution. Upon hearing that such a magnificent cultivation practice is being suppressed by the Chinese Communist regime, they felt that it was inconceivable and signed the petition against the persecution and condemned the Chinese Communist regime’s atrocities.
A young woman took pictures of all the display boards, banners and practitioners demonstrating the Falun Gong exercises. The colourful paper lotus flowers and bookmarks distributed by practitioners were popular. A woman liked the lotus flowers so much that when a practitioner handed a flower to her, she seriously said that she would like to sign the petition first since it was very important. Afterwards she told practitioners that she would tell what she now knows to her family members and friends, so that more people are able to know about the real human rights situation in China.
An elderly couple from Norway told the practitioners that they have a liking for traveling, and have came across Falun Gong practitioners in many countries, and that they knew this cultivation practice is very good and is practised by many people. They also expressed their admiration for Falun Gong practitioners’ courage. They added, “I know that all of you are very serious about this matter, and you are really wonderful. It is unwise for the Chinese Communist regime to persecute Falun Gong.” Finally they expressed their support for Falun Gong practitioners and encourage them to persevere so as to achieve the final success.
There were also many tourists from China there. They were shocked to see the activities. When knowing that Falun Gong is so popular in almost every country around the world and China is the only country that has banned Falun Gong, they were wondering the reasons behind that. Some viewed the display boards quietly; some were deep in thought; still others happily accepted the “Nine Commentaries on the CCP” and expressed that they would read it thoroughly after getting home. Only few of those who have long been brainwashed by the CCP turned away on the spot while the practitioners patiently explained to them the huge wave of withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organisations. Seeing this scenario, a female tour leader said with smile: “Since they are government officials, they were afraid of being punished after returning to China if they accepted the material. In fact, they like to read it. You just give me some more copies, and I’ll distribute the material to them. They are really pitiful as they even don’t have the guts to accept the material in Chinese.”
Seeing the reaction from these Chinese people who have been deceived by the CCP culture, the Falun Gong practitioners further enlightened the seriousness of their responsibility. Peter, a practitioner from Norway stated, “From now on, I’ll persist in telling people the facts about the Falun Gong and the persecution, so as to expose the evil nature of the CCP. I hope that more sentient beings deceived by the Chinese Communist regime can be saved and that more and more deceived Chinese can wake up and quit the CCP as soon as possible so as to have a bright future.”
