Paris is a must-see destination for Chinese tourists to Europe, many of whom visit the Eiffel Tower. For over a decade, Falun Gong practitioners have set up posters nearby to raise awareness of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of the spiritual practice.
Some tourists stop to talk to practitioners and learn more about the persecution. Upon hearing how practitioners in their home country are arrested, tortured, and even killed for their organs, a number of Chinese agree to renounce their memberships in the CCP.

Six Students Learn the Purpose of Quitting the CCP
One day, practitioner Jun encountered a group of six undergraduate students and learned that all of them were Communist Party members. Jun told them, “The CCP has committed countless crimes and will be disintegrated soon. All its members will be implicated. When you joined the Party, you raised your fists and vowed to work and sacrifice your lives for it. If you don't withdraw from the Party, you will be counted as a member of it and held accountable.”
These students happily renounced their memberships in the Party. One of them said, “What you said is right. We will have a bright future.”
Jun said, “Our country needs you in the future. Tell your friends and relatives that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She gave each a link to a software program to get around internet censorship in China. Each student thanked Jun.

Student Helps Family Quit the Party
When Jun explained the persecution to another college student one day, the student said, “I have renounced the Party in China. I know Falun Dafa is good. My family all know, too. But I don't know how to help them to withdraw their memberships in the Party.”
Jun gave her a card with a link to the anti-censorship software and the Epoch Times website, which publishes withdrawals from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
More Tourists Give Their Support
A young man and his father told Jun, “Some of my friends and relatives have been to Paris. They told me to pay attention to the volunteers next to the Eiffel Tower who ask people to withdraw from the Party. They said there was a banner saying 'Falun Dafa Is Good'. They spoke out the words and told me to do the same.” He asked Jun to take a photo of them in front of the banner.
A couple in their 50s were visiting from Chengdu, Sichuan Province. They commended the practitioners' efforts and agreed to renounce their memberships in the Party. The husband said emotionally, “The tenet of the Communist Party is power coming from the barrel of a gun. If anyone does not listen to the Party, he would be imprisoned or killed. We would not dare to tell the truth in China. But we know it. The CCP took power by spreading lies and has misled Chinese people for over 60 years.”
