United States: European Falun Gong practitioners participate in truth clarification activities in Manhattan

Not long ago, we took a trip to New York. Fully utilising all of our nine days there, we studied the Fa, sent forth righteous thoughts, clarified the truth and attended an anti-torture exhibitions with local American practitioners.

For a long time, there have been at least three truth-clarification stations in Manhattan. Two of them carry anti-torture exhibitions performed mainly by practitioners from the US, Canada, Australia and Taiwan. European practitioners also assist in the exhibitions from time to time. Another station is operated mainly by local American practitioners. They expose the persecution of the Chinese communist regime against Falun Gong in Manhattan and at the Chinese Consulate. The practitioners said they wouldn’t stop the demonstration until the persecution is put to an end.

Among the practitioners are young people, middle aged and even some elderly people in their seventies. Holding the same wish in their hearts, they persist in distributing materials, clarifying the truth and saving people day after day, year after year regardless of the weather.

Manhattan is the most prosperous area of New York. It is the business centre of New York. Everyone who comes to New York will certainly visits Manhattan. On every single street of Manhattan is a constant flow of people of various nationalities. Therefore, clarifying the truth in Manhattan is equivalent to clarifying the truth to the whole world.

Practitioners sending forth righteous thoughts How could this have happened? This is unimaginable. It is just too cruel.

Shocks to the hearts

No matter what the skin colour or where a person came from, everyone who visited the Falun Gong’s exhibition station and saw practitioners anti-torture exhibition would ask where the persecution was occurring. They couldn’t help but equate what they saw to a hell on earth. After practitioners explained to them what they were seeing is the bloody slaughter and illegal persecution of the evil Chinese communist regime against Falun Gong practitioners, who practise truthfulness, compassion and tolerance, they would often exclaimed, “This is too cruel,” “I cannot describe what I feel,” or “My heart is quivering.”

A typical pattern of conversation goes like this. People would ask practitioners what Falun Gong is all about, and why the Chinese communist regime decided to persecute Falun Gong so brutally. Practitioners would tell them that Falun Gong is a traditional cultivation way, which frequently brings physical and mental health to practitioners and that the nature of falsehood, wickedness and violence of the Chinese communist regime has made the regime forbid practitioners from acting as good people in accordance with the principles of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance. After they realised that the actual methods of persecution were far crueler than what was being demonstrated in the anti-torture exhibitions, they would always sign their names to support the petition without any hesitation.

A puzzled historian

Pointing his finger to the anti-torture exhibition and persecution photos, a passer-by told a practitioner in an emotional tone, “I am a scholar of history, and my research have led me to a deep understanding about China’s history. As a country that has five thousand years of history, and was once famed as the state of ceremonies, China has made great contribution to the history of mankind. However, why does China become so cruel and ferocious?”

With patience practitioners explained to him that it is neither China nor the Chinese nation that persecutes Falun Gong practitioners. Instead, it is the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that rules China now. In the early twentieth century, evil communism was introduced to China. It ruined China’s traditional culture, trampled on China’s civilisation and brought innumerous disasters to the Chinese nation. All of these have been well documented in the “Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party”. Practitioner presented him with a copy of the book, telling him, “After you read this book, you will know what the Chinese Communist Party is all about, and why it decided to persecute Falun Gong.”

Capturing the historic scene

In the constant flow of passers-by, a lot of them stopped their walk to watch the exhibitions. Some photographed the shocking scenes and recorded in mankind’s history the atrocities that the CCP has illegally committed against Falun Gong.

Capturing this historic scene.

I strongly believe that from fellow practitioners’ persistence in clarifying the truth regardless of the difficulties over the years, more and more people in the world will understand the persecution truth. Ultimately, it will become more and more difficult for the CCP to sustain their persecution against Falun Gong.
