Falun Gong practitioners in the German town of Tuebingen exposed human rights violations in China by demonstrating the exercises to peaceful music, displaying poster boards and distributing flyers.
By publishing the following in the Swabian Daily newspaper on the day before the activities, the practitioners were able to inform local people about the event:
Information activities will be held on Saturday October 13th between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the Tuebinger lumber market. According to the Tuebinger group, more than 3,000 people lost their lives from torture and abuse in China over the past eight years.
The practitioners erected an information booth on the north side of the late gothic Church of the Halls, at the church of Saint George. The area was bustling with people enjoying the slightly autumn, but still beautiful weather. Before the beginning of the semester, free classical and jazz concerts in the old town drew many visitors. Also, a Christian choir sang religious songs.
To support the event, practitioners from Stuttgart, Boeblingen and Leonberg arrived, one after the other. It was quite obvious that many passers-by enjoyed taking a flyer from Chinese practitioners in the hope that they would hear reliable information about the situation in China. At the same time, many discussions were held around the practitioners’ information booth.
A number of people expressed that the persecution in China is hard to believe, especially in the face of the serene and peaceful Falun Gong exercises, which generated quite a lot of interest. One of the passersby recognised a former mountaineer friend doing the exercises and said in amazement, “What are you doing here? What is Falun Gong? I have not heard of it!” Also, other practitioners from Tuebingen met old acquaintances. One professor from a Tuebinger clinic greeted one of his nurses and gladly signed the petition.
A Chinese practitioner had made, in support of the event exposing the truth about the persecuted Falun Gong practitioners and the call for an immediate end of the persecution, beautiful paper lotus flowers. The passers-by gladly accepted these hand-made paper lotus flowers. In retrospect, this was a successful and harmonic day. Many people heard the truth about the situation in China.
