Switzerland: "Well done and we support you"

When the annual World Economic Forum convened between January 23rd and January 28th 2006, some Falun Gong practitioners came to the famous Swiss skiing spot, Davos. The practitioners came to attend an event sponsored by the Epoch Times newspaper in support of more than 7.5 million people withdrawing from the CCP. However, just as they did before, they disclosed the brutal persecution of Falun Gong by the CCP to the participants and the media at the Forum as well as the tourists on holiday there and the local people.

Since the Epoch Times published their editorial “Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party” at the end of 2004, more and more people started to understand the CCP’s evil nature. The persecution by the CCP of Falun Gong practitioners who believe in “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance”, which has now lasted for more than six years is the strongest evidence that it persecutes good people.

The banners contrasted eye-catchingly with the white snow, attracting the attention of people who stopped to take a look. The pictures displayed on the snowy ground describing the torture Falun Gong practitioners endure, as well as the explanations of particular cases, caught the public’s eye and many were deeply horrified. Many people expressed that they couldn’t imagine or understand how this inhuman thing could still be happening today. Just as in previous years, the media took pictures of the information stand as well as the exercises demonstrated by the practitioners.

"I want to sign"

When viewing all the torture exhibition pictures on the roadside, a lady directly came to the information stand and asked, “Do you collect signatures? I want to sign. I will sign my name as long as you collect the signatures. This is too ruthless.”

Since 2003, Falun Gong practitioners have set up the information stand every year and distributed leaflets. In 2005, they held an anti-torture exhibition. Many local people have understood the truth about Falun Gong. The practitioners ask them to read the “Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party” so as to have a better understanding of the real reasons why the CCP persecutes Falun Gong. This is because the evil CCP’s falseness, wickedness and violent nature decide they cannot tolerate people living according to truthfulness, compassion and forbearance, nor tolerate people having their own beliefs. A man said while signing to support the withdrawal from CCP that “I also signed my name last year. I’ll sign my name every year.”

This activity lasted for a week. As a result, on the last several days many passersby would say that they already had a leaflet and that they had already signed their names. Some would happily say, “I’ve read through the material.” When a lady was asked if she would like to sign for support, she said, “I’ve signed already. But if it were possible, I would like to sign ten times.”

"Jiang Zemin should go to jail"

A local elderly woman spoke with the practitioners many times. On the last day, she pointed to the picture of Jiang Zemin and said, “This person is so bad and being sued in so many countries in the world. Why isn’t he in jail?” The practitioner told her that because Jiang Zemin hides in China and China is still being controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. The elderly woman continued, saying, “Then you should let all China’s neighbouring countries know Jiang’s crimes so that he would be arrested if he ever leaves China.”

"I Hope you won’t be here for the same reason next year"

Many people told the practitioners that “You’ve done well. I support you.” Some people gave snacks to us. A man said that, “I understand the CCP violates human rights. What you have done is great and I support you. But I hope you won’t need to come here for this reason next year.”
