Russia: Raising Awareness about Falun Gong in Omsk

Situated between Ekaterinburg and Novosibirsk, Omsk city is the capital of Omsk State, a major agricultural state in South Western Siberia.

On the morning of January 30th, 2008, Falun Gong practitioners from Irkutsk and Tomsk made it to the Chinese market in Omsk City with two large bags of leaflets and distributed them to Chinese people in the market in the run up to the Lunar New Year. Nearly 80 to 90 percent of the Chinese people there were pleased to accept the information, including a special issue of the Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party (an editorial by The Epoch Times newspaper) and other material about Falun Gong. Practitioners' information CDs were so popular that none of them were left.

After that, Falun Gong practitioners rented a car and drove to a farmland district and gave out truth clarification material to the Chinese who grew vegetables there. Since it was in the winter and was not the right time for Chinese farmers to grow vegetables there. Practitioners thus left behind some material to the security guards, so that the Chinese farmers could get them after returning from their Lunar New Year holidays. Since a chauffer told the practitioners that there were some more Chinese working at a nearby motor repair shop, the practitioners therefore brought some truth clarification material there.

On the morning of February 1st, they visited various major libraries and donated some Zhuan Falun (the Main book of Falun Gong), the Nine Commentaries on the CCP, and the Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China. Among the libraries in Omsk City that had received Dafa publications and truth clarification material were Pushkin Library, which is the biggest library in Omsk State, Omsk Municipal Library and some high school libraries.

During the process, the practitioners came across dentists at a nearby dental clinic and all of them received a Russian version of the Epoch Times, a Falun Gong flyer and the Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China.

On their way home in the evening, the practitioners distributed Russian Falun Gong flyers and other truth clarification materials to passengers in every carriage on the train. In the meantime, practitioners also sent forth righteous thoughts to help these passengers read the materials so as to understand the facts about the persecution against Falun Gong.
