On July 30th, 2006, Falun Gong practitioners in Barcelona, Spain, went to the Fondo area, a Chinese community, to demonstrate the goodness of Falun Dafa, expose the crime of Genocide that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has committed against Falun Gong and to appeal to the kind people for their help to end the persecution.
Before practitioners erected the demonstration boards, some Chinese people went up to ask for the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party (an editorial published by The Epoch Times newspaper) and other information. They greeted Falun Gong practitioners warmly. The atmosphere was peaceful. With more and more people gathered there, one elderly Chinese man suddenly accused practitioners of making China look bad by demonstrating the pictures of the innocent practitioners being persecuted in China by cruel punishments to foreigners. Practitioners kindly explained to him, “The CCP and China are not the same. We all hope that China will improve; however, the CCP kept persecuting the Chinese people. We are here to expose the crime of genocide committed by the CCP and hope the persecution can be ended as soon as possible.”
Nevertheless, the elderly man did not stop his accusation but argued for the CCP’s narrow theory of nationalism. Two people in the crowd stood by his side and said some bad words. They even went up to snatch practitioners’ leaflets, tore them up and threw them on the ground. The police on duty took the two Chinese people aside, asked them questions, and recorded their names. The Falun Gong practitioners said after the event that these people had been poisoned too deeply by the CCP’s evil and extreme theory of so-called nationalism.
The Falun Gong practitioners were not influenced by those people’s irrational acts. They continued talking to people there. They patiently answered the questions asked by the Chinese people, such as “What is Falun Gong?”, “What’s the matter of the 4.25 event?” “Why does the CCP persecute Falun Gong?” “Is the figure of withdrawals from the CCP on the Epoch Times true?” and so on. People there realised the facts and witnessed the practitioners’ great compassion and forbearance.
During the activity, many western people wrote down their names, ID and telephone numbers in the signature book after they knew about the CCP’s inhuman crimes against Falun Gong practitioners in China. Some asked what else they could do besides signing their names to stop the persecution.
When leaving in the evening, practitioners blessed the people happily and hoped they would have a good future. A Chinese person said he admired their peace and patience. A practitioner replied, “It’s because we are Dafa practitioners who cultivate ‘Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.’ We are here just to tell the facts to you.”
