On the 11th and 18th of June, 2006, in the Place du Trocadero (Human Rights Plaza) in Paris, French Falun Gong practitioners exposed the CCP's trade in organs harvested from Falun Gong practitioners to tourists from every corner of the world and appealed for an end to the persecution. The many banners and photos depicting the persecution attracted many people to come to sign the petition and to inquire about information.
To awaken people’s conscience
In the past seven years, on the Place du Trocadero, Falun Gong practitioners have been exposing and protesting against the persecution of Falun Gong in China. Practitioner Chen Fa said, "We have been doing this for seven years. What we want to do is to awaken people’s conscience. It is also a chance for people to know that Falun Dafa is the essence of traditional Chinese culture and it can awaken people’s conscience and save them".
The principles of Falun Gong are ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’, which has been acknowledged by the world’s people. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) openly persecutes us and is against the people who follow this principle. Chen Fa said, "Since the start of the persecution, the CCP has shown its evil nature more and more. The people who have known the truth on this Place du Trocadero in Paris will all fight against the persecution of Falun Gong launched by this evil party. This is especially the truth on the issue of the CCP crime of harvesting and selling of Falun Gong practitioners’ organs. It is even worse than what the Nazis did. This crime must be stopped".
Take action to expose the CCP crimes
After reading the posters and watching the exercise demonstration, a French lady named Freda said, "What I feel can not be expressed in words. I do not know how to explain what I have seen. I find it is hard to go on reading the posters. The persecution is so ruthless, so horrible. I did not think anything like this would happen at this time, but, I really do not know which word I should use to describe. Maybe Chauvinism or ultra nationalism".
When talking about how to help Falun Gong practitioners persecuted in China, Freda said, "For the people in the west and the people in other eastern countries, we should take action and speak out to expose these crimes. We should speak out for the people under this persecution. We should not tolerate any country’s leader who ordered the persecution of its own people".
Freda also talked about the difference between western countries and the CCP. She said, "I hope that the CCP head can have a look at what we are doing here. When I saw those photos about torture, I really could not go on. But I know that I should adjust my attitude and take action to help. We should not ignore this. We can not ignore this".
After looking at the posters about the CCP practice of harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners, a French lady said, "It is so shocking. We know nothing about the existence of concentration camps in China. In French history, the Nazi concentration camps have deeply hurt us. They are so terrible. We think that the concentration camps should not have re-appeared in this age, however, they still emerged in today’s China. It is so shocking".
When talking about what France can do to help, this lady said, "Our media should report this issue and let all the people know its happening. If we do not know this kind of thing is happening, we can do nothing".
Another French lady added, "I think the existence of concentration camps under the CCP ruling is an issue for the world. I think those international organisations should put this issue on their timetable".
After reading the posters about the persecution of Falun Gong, a French boy signed the petition and said, "It is so horrible, the CCP has done such a crime to human beings and they will not escape from justice. I feel so shocked, tremendously shocked".
Seeing the photos of the torture, a girl asked a practitioner why it was happening. After the practitioner explained for her, she said, "What they have done is so bad".
