Reaching the Hearts of My Fellow Countrymen In Front of the Chinese Embassy

Teacher Li said in "Touring North America to Teach the Fa" that, "If at that time even the people in the consulates come out to learn Falun Gong from us, it would be just too terrifying for that chief political scoundrel in China. [..]" Teacher also said that, "Actually, the staff members of the consulates in some regions have already started to come out and make contact with our students, some have already taken our materials quietly, and have said to us in private, 'Good job!'"

On the morning of March 1,2002, I came to the Chinese embassy in a certain country to unfold banners, practice exercises and do Fa Zheng Nian [maintaining upright thoughts after reciting a Falun Gong verse once Ed. Note] as usual. Around 10 o'clock, 7 or 8 persons of a Chinese delegation along with some embassy staff started to load luggage from a nearby hotel into a vehicle.

I walked over and greeted them by saying, "Are you returning to China? I wish you a safe trip!" They heard me and gladly stopped to talk with me. I pointed at the banner, which said "Falun Dafa, Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" and said, "I am a Falun Gong practitioner, we've been peacefully appealing here for two years already..." Upon hearing "Falun Gong," they immediately became tense, and they told me with scowling faces, "We don't want to hear, we don't want to hear." A staff member from the embassy shouted: "Get away, get away..."
I smiled, and told them, "Actually, our purpose is to appeal against the persecution of Falun Gong by Jiang's criminal gang. We are not against the staff of the embassy; you are all my fellow countrymen."

The atmosphere instantly relaxed. Everybody smiled easily again. Then a young man from the embassy said to me, "then Jiang is also your fellow countryman." I told him sincerely, "He is murdering my fellow countrymen. More than 1600 Falun Dafa practitioners have been brutally tortured to death since the suppression started more than two years ago, from grandparents in their 70's to babies only a few months old. My fellow countrymen, you also have wives and children, think about it with your hearts, Falun Gong practitioners just want to be healthy and to cultivate 'Truth, Compassion, Tolerance' to become better people, why should they suffer such cruel persecution? Where is the justice?"
Everyone became silent and lowered their heads. A lady quietly turned her face away...

Then I spoke of Falun Dafa's widespread popularity overseas, western practitioners' going to Tiananmen square, all kinds of governments' proclamations for Falun Dafa, the truth of the staged "self-immolation," "Good is rewarded with good and evil meets evil," the "villain list" on the internet and Zhou Yongkang and Zhao Zhifei being sued in court. I spoke with my soul to clarify the truth of Falun Gong to my fellow countrymen.

When they had loaded the vehicle and were all seated, the lady in the back seat stuck her head out of the window and said to me, "Practice well!" In the end, an official of the embassy said to me, "We have to go now. We hope you come to a successful end." I said to them waving my hand, "Please remember: Falun Dafa is good! Zhen-Shan-Ren [Truth-Compassion-Tolerance] is the universal truth. Tell everyone when you go back that you saw Falun Gong overseas! Good-bye."
