On April 1st, 2008, some Turkish Falun Gong practitioners gathered at Adana City, the 4th largest city in Turkey, to expose the Chinese Communist regime’s atrocities of the cruel persecution against Falun Gong.

Deputy Mayor and concurrent chairman of the municipal human rights committee of Adana City expresses his sympathy and concern about the persecution of Falun Gong in China People with sense of justice condemn the Chinese Communist regime’s atrocity of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners

The practitioners first visited the city government where they were cordially received by the Deputy Mayor and the concurrent chairman of the municipal human rights committee, Mr. Ismail Kormantz. They presented him with a Falun Gong brochure, a copy of the Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China written by renowned international human right lawyer David Matas and former Canadian Member of Parliament, David Kilgour, as well as some other documents regarding the Chinese regime’s persecution of Falun Gong. In addition, they further elaborated on the Communist regime’s atrocities of harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners for profit, its serious abuses of Falun Gong practitioners’ basic human rights and the cruel tortures against Falun Gong practitioners in China.

After attentively listening to the practitioners’ explanations, Mr. Kormantz expressed his deep sympathy and concern about the persecution Falun Gong practitioners have suffered in China. In the meantime, he highly praised Falun Gong practitioners for their great steadfastness, compassion and tolerance. Finally, he expressed his support for the practitioners’ campaign of distributing Falun Gong truth-clarification material in the city.

Afterwards, the Falun Gong practitioners visited the municipal security bureau, provincial government and other departments of the city government. They told officials of these government agencies about the Chinese regime’s cruel persecution of Falun Gong in China, among others, the truth about the regime’s harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for profits. After listening, many condemned the Chinese regime’s atrocities and expressed their sympathy for Falun Gong. The director of the security department and the police officers in the relevant departments cordially received the practitioners. After reading the leaflets presented by those practitioners, the permit for distributing materials were issued shortly.

During the process of talking to various government agencies, these practitioners were moved by the many officials’ compassion and sense of justice. After listening to the explanation of the truth about the persecution, almost all of the officials condemned the regime’s atrocious crimes. In the meantime, many expressed their interest in Falun Gong and asked the practitioners for the Falun Gong exercise instruction VCDs. A female employee of the provincial government visited the Falun Gong website right after listening to the introduction given by the practitioners, so as to get further information about Falun Gong. She seriously expressed that she would like to learn Falun Gong. The director of the administrative department of the city government issued a permit for the practitioners to distribute materials in the downtown area right after knowing the truth about the Chinese regime’s persecution of Falun Gong.

During the midday period, practitioners came to the train station square in the busiest business district of Adana City to give away flyers to passersby and passengers. During the process, a middle aged teacher talked to the practitioners and asked them what was going on there. After hearing about the Chinese regime’s atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners to sell for profits and cremated their bodies to eliminate the evidence, he was very shocked. He said that the Chinese regime was indeed very inhuman and that what the regime has committed would definitely be punished by heaven. He added that he would display the information exposing the Chinese Communist regime’s atrocities on the school’s bulletin board so as to let more teachers and students know about the regime’s atrocious acts. After listening to the truth-clarification by practitioners, a farmer asked for some more copies of the flyers, saying that he would bring them back for his family members and relatives so that they would be able to know the Chinese regime’s evil deeds.

Before they wrapped up the activity, the practitioners distributed flyers to the shops in that vicinity one after another. In less than one hour, the practitioners distributed over 1,000 flyers, aiming to spread the goodness of Falun Gong to the people there and help them realise the intrinsic evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party.
