On February the 17th 2004, Falun Gong practitioners from Germany and the Ukraine gathered at the Chinese Consulate in Munich to protest against the recent escalation of the persecution of practitioners in China by Jiang’s regime. Practitioners appealed to bring the criminal behind the persecution and his main cohorts to justice, displaying a Chinese-German banner reading “The Law is Against Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang”. A photo display showed pictures of Falun Gong practitioners who were tortured to death.
Apart from the Chinese and German people who were visiting the Chinese Consulate on business, several busloads of Chinese people arrived. These people, especially the ones from Mainland China, were very surprised to see people practising Falun Gong. Some of them read the banners out loud. Others gazed at practitioners in amazement for a long time until the bus took them away.
Throughout the day, passers-by wanted to find out more about the persecution. Some offered to donate money; practitioners thanked them, but declined. Moreover, some asked what they could do to help the practitioners in China. Others prayed for the persecuted practitioners.
A German businessman waiting for a visa looked at the persecution photos and told practitioners he was extremely shocked. Attracted by the prospective market in China, he had been to China twice. He had seen a lot poor people and strange sights, and he didn’t believe the things that appear in the state-controlled media. At first he worried that the Consulate would not grant his visa after he talked with Falun Gong practitioners. However, after talking with practitioners for a while, he said he didn’t care about his visa any more and wished good luck to all Falun Gong practitioners.
Dafa practitioner Chen Gang from Munich recently welcomed the arrival of his mother from China. His mother is a Falun Gong practitioner who the “610 Office” had tried to kidnap and take to brainwashing classes. She had to abandon her home for more than two years. German practitioners petitioned to rescue her, and were pleased when she safely arrived in Germany. Now she also stands among the practitioners, protesting the suppression by Jiang’s regime.
Falun Gong practitioners appealed for the chief culprits responsible for the persecution to be immediately brought to justice. Practitioners hope that all levels of Chinese officials and international circles will get to know the facts of the Jiang regime’s kidnapping and torturing of Falun Gong practitioners, thereby helping to stop the persecution in China.
