Germany: Exposing the Crimes Committed Against Falun Gong in China

Many people waned to find out more when Falun Gong practitioners held an activity in downtown Bremen to promote the practice and expose the brutal persecution waged against Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The practitioners set up poster display boards and handed out leaflets. They told people about the CCP's crimes of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, which are then sold to transplant seekers. The practitioners' bodies are cremated.

A couple from India approached the practitioners when they were distributing flyers about the organ harvesting. The man explained that he and his wife had looked at many spiritual practices in India. He said that there were many Buddhist schools, but the path to heaven is only by following the principles taught by Jesus. He also said that there will be a judgment day in the future, when everyone is judged by God and has to answer for all the sins committed in one's lifetime.

The practitioners explained that they were certain that their cultivation path, that teaches them to be a good person and live by the principles “Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance”, leaves them worry free.

The practitioners said that the goal during this information day was not to convince people that Falun Gong is the only way towards spiritual fulfillment, but to inform the public that good and peaceful people are being persecuted for their belief and had to suffer organ theft. Before the Indian couple left, the practitioners said, “This persecution is wrong and an outrageous injustice.” The couple was quiet for a moment and then nodded their head and said, “Good, we will read the flyer.” They said their goodbyes with a friendly smile.

Adjacent to the information booth organised by the Falun Gong practitioners was a booth by the Association for the Environment and Nature Conservation Germany a registered society which is one of Germany’s largest environmental associations. Two young men were responsible for this booth. They called for passersby to donate money and to become a member of the Association. They had not heard of the persecution of Falun Gong. After the practitioners told them during a long conversation about the principles of Falun Gong and its persecution, both man told them that the Association does not only finance projects and acquisitions with the membership fees, but that the members also put pressure on politicians concerning certain causes.

The practitioners took this as an opportunity to tell the two men that Falun Gong has no members and does not accept donations. All materials and expenditures for activities by Falun Gong are paid from practitioners’ own pockets. A practitioner told them that the goal of such an information day is to inform as many people as possible the truth of the persecution and the crimes committed against Falun Gong practitioners in China. Everyone needs clarification of the true circumstances and the opportunity to speak out for an immediate end to the persecution. This could be achieved by signing a petition, through a letter to their city representative or the federal president, or perhaps through some other way.

There are many opportunities to follow one's conscience and to speak out for an end to the crimes committed against Falun Gong adherents. For example, the owner of a restaurant took some flyers about the organ harvesting and will give them to the patrons of his restaurant. He had approached the practitioners at the information booth and asked, “Why is Falun Gong persecuted so cruelly?” One practitioners answered that the fundamental principles of Falun Gong are “Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance", while the principles of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) are the opposite of these positive principles.. The man understood immediately what the practitioners wanted to tell him and said, “Yes, all understood. I own a restaurant. Please give me flyers and I will display them.”

Soon after, a young man, who was bothered by the same question, approached the practitioners. He also wanted to understand why Falun Gong was persecuted so inhumanly. He had been sent to China for one and a half years by his workplace and believed despite the constant state monitoring, the Chinese people could practise any belief. He reasoned that there are hundreds of monasteries, where the monks were allowed to pray. After listening to the explanations at the information booth he agreed to also speak up for an end to the persecution, but didn’t think it made much of a difference. One practitioner explained that the more signatures are collected, the greater file of truth would ensue and a field where truth reigns would be created. This field would help bring an end to the persecution. It wasn’t that one voice alone would not make a difference. But, it mattered that the more voices would join the chorus, the greater the potency of the field of truth that would be established. After listening to these words the young man did not say anything more and signed all the petitions without another thought.
