United Kingdom: “Please give me a leaflet!” Raising Awareness about Falun Gong in the Centre of London

St. Martin’s Square in the centre of London is an important place where Falun Gong practitioners from the UK raise awareness about Falun Dafa and the persecution to people in the UK. Although the square is not big, it is near Trafalgar Square in London, on the route people have to take from Trafalgar Square to China Town. In recent years, Falun Gong practitioners in London have come here many times to talk to people in the UK face to face, letting more people hear and see the facts about Falun Gong and learn about the cruel persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and calling on civilians in the UK to help end the persecution.

On September 15th 2007, some Falun Gong practitioners in London again came to St. Martin’s Square. They laid out information boards depicting the evil CCP’s eight-year persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and the evil CCP's atrocity of harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners. Those who participated in the activity were divided into two groups: One group was demonstrating the Falun Gong exercises and another was distributing leaflets, collecting signatures and talking to passersby.

As it was a fine day, in addition to a grand music event in Trafalgar Square, there was very big flow of people coming and going in St. Martin’s Square. Some Chinese people were among them. Many people stopped and looked at the exhibition boards; some accepted leaflets about Falun Gong, some walked to the front of the desk and signed the petition to support the end of the persecution and still others raised questions to practitioners.

Standing in front of the exhibition boards, an English man, looking at the posters regarding organs from live Falun Gong practitioners, asked a practitioner, “Has it really removed organs from live people? Why has the CCP done that?” The practitioner told him about the evil nature of the wicked CCP: From how it launched all kinds of movements persecuting Chinese people to how it persecutes Falun Gong now. On hearing this, the English man said, “Please give me a leaflet!”

Standing in front of the exhibition boards, young English couples were looking at pictures of Falun Gong practitioners being tortured by evil policemen. The young man asked a practitioner, “Is this photo true?” The practitioner nearby told them immediately: “This photo is a re-enactment, but such a persecution is really happening right now in China.” Pointing at the explanation below the photo, the girl said, “Oh, it is a re-enactment.” At this moment, a practitioner standing near opened a leaflet, pointing to the photo of Gao Rongrong being disfigured after being tortured, she said, “Please look at this. This is a real photo. She has been persecuted to death just because she refused to give up her belief.” On seeing Gao Rongrong’s photo, that young man immediately turned his face saying, “It is too terrifying!” He then signed the petition supporting the end of the persecution.

A Chinese girl, together with her father, stopped in front of the desk on which there was a great amount of materials, with her eyes impatiently searching for something. A practitioner came forward and assisted them. She learned that the father had just arrived from mainland China came to visit his daughter who has studied in the UK for many years. His daughter wanted to find more information for her father to read. While the daughter was seriously selecting the material, a practitioner chatted to him. She told the father how she benefited from practicing Gong, Falun Gong is good, hoped he would not to be deceived by the CCP's lies. Since he was overseas, he should look at the truth more and believe the fact that Gods will destroy the CCP and he could be saved only by quitting the CCP and its associated organisations.

When standing at a corner of a street distributing materials, a practitioner heard a call: “Please give me one". She turned back and saw a Chinese young man standing behind her. The young man looked very honest. On seeing that he was Chinese, the practitioner said, “Please wait, I will get you some material in Chinese.” She ran to the desk and took some Chinese leaflets, booklets and CDs back. The young man accepted the material with delight, and ran and went after his companions.

A practitioner participated in the activity, together with her four year old son. The boy is simple and unaffected and adorable. On the afternoon, the little boy started to distribute leaflets to passersby. People, one after another, accepted the leaflets he distributed. Some came to him asking for leaflets, saying, “I must accept yours, thank you.”
