On the 24th of September, the Human Rights Square in Paris was especially crowded. Practitioners hung up banners reading “Falun Dafa is Good” and “Bring the illegal incarceration of Falun Gong practitioners in detention centres, labour camps and jails to an end” and demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises to gentle traditional-style Chinese music.
Onlookers packed in front of the photo exhibition, one group after another. Some squatted down to concentrate on the contents while others took photographs of the persecution exhibitions. On this day there were many inquiries. Many took the initiative to sign the petition and ask for leaflets and the Nine Commentaries (an editorial about the Chinese Communist Party published by The Epoch Times newspaper). Some questioned as to why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecutes Falun Gong. Visitors and immigrants from Eastern Europe who suffered a great deal from the Communists rallied, “We support you. You are doing the right thing. Please continue.”
A sturdy gentleman stood out in the crowd. Having read the exhibits, he solemnly walked to the front of the stand and signed his name on the petition form without a word. Some practitioners recognised him as the famous French singer, M. Renaud.
After talking with several practitioners, he was deeply moved. He said, “I support you. I will ask people around me to help stop this terrible persecution.” Taking a stack of organ harvesting leaflets, M. Renaud continued, “I support you with all my heart. You can put my photo onto your website if it helps to stop this terrible persecution. I will tell people around me. That is the least I could do.” With this, he happily had photos taken with Falun Gong practitioners. He took a French version of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party when he left.
An employee of the Maison de Radio France commented after reading the information boards, “This incident is rarely covered by media. I will take material for my colleagues so that everybody can help stop this barbaric persecution.”
A couple with a young daughter whispered in a practitioner’s ears, “My friend is a journalist. I’ll ask him to write an article on this.” Their daughter asked practitioners to teach her the exercises. They happily watched on as their little girl learned the exercises. What a rewarding journey this chance outing turned out to be.
A hearing and speech impaired couple passed by. A practitioner offered leaflets, telling them the truth. Shaking his hands, he indicated that he did not understand. Pointing to the exhibits, the practitioner gestured to him about the CCP harvesting live human organs for profit. He was shocked, was it true? The practitioner nodded in confirmation. He immediately raised his fists to show indignation, gesturing inconceivable. Seeing their regrets of not being able to express themselves, practitioners promptly offered the petition form, which they solemnly signed.
