Falun Gong Practitioner's Painting "Homeless" Draws Attention from German Newspaper

Cover of the “Donau Strudl”

The theme of the most recent edition of the “Donau Strudl”, a street magazine from Regensburg, was “Homelessness”. The chief editor adopted Falun Gong practitioner’s painting “Homeless” from the International Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance Fine Art Exhibition and expressed sympathy and concern towards the innocent Falun Gong practitioners and their relatives who have been made homeless by the persecution. Inside the magazine, a detailed description was written to explain the picture on the cover. Moreover, the magazine mentioned that this painting was displayed during the International Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance Fine Art Exhibition held this September in the nearby city of Cham.

Caption for the Donau Strudl’s cover picture “The Cham Times” published “Homeless”, and appealed for signatures on a human rights petition

On November 2nd, 2005, this painting was also printed in Chamland-Aktuell, a free weekly publication based in Cham city. At that time the Chinese leader Hu Jintao was just about to visit Germany. The newspaper agency put in an article about Falun Gong practitioners calling on the Chinese government to stop persecuting human rights, especially the oppression of peaceful, rational Falun Gong practitioners and requesting the German prime minister to bring up human rights issues with Hu Jintao. For this reason, Falun Gong practitioners collected signatures from the general public.
