At noon on April 21st, Hu Jintao arrived at Sprague Memorial Hall of Yale University. At locations where Hu had to pass by, practitioners displayed huge banners which read "Bring Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang to Justice", "Thoroughly Investigate Chinese Labour Camps and Prisons' Persecution of Falun Gong" and "Falun Dafa is a Righteous Way". The banner display was well-organised and very eye-catching.

Sprague Hall

Outside Sprague Hall, practitioners not only unfurled banners but also displayed numerous truth-clarifying posters to tell the pedestrians, police on-duty and the "Welcoming corps" organised the Chinese Communist regime about the beauty of Falun Dafa, the brutal 7-year persecution and the inhuman crime of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.

Media Focus on Falun Gong

All major media outlets including Reuters, AP and the largest local TV station were very interested in practitioners' activities. Reporters not only looked through the banners and posters, many also chatted with practitioners. When they saw practitioners peacefully sending forth righteous thoughts, reporters in succession took photos of the site.

A reporter from AP interviewed a practitioner named Lucy, who said that she and more than 100 other practitioners came from New York City to send their message to Hu Jintao: stop the killing of Falun Gong practitioners. Lucy also recounted the CCP's crime of harvesting organs from living practitioners and then cremating the remains to destroy the evidence. She emphasised that phone interviews by Sound of Hope Radio recorded confirmation from Chinese doctors that their organs were from Falun Gong practitioners. The reporter was shocked by the exposed massacre. Lucy also told the reporter that their appeal is not only to Hu Jintao but also to everyone, hoping all kind-hearted people will learn the truth of Falun Gong and help end the persecution.

Fox 19 interviewed Jane Dai from Australia and American citizen Charles Lee. Dai recounted how her husband was beaten to death by the Chinese Communist regime in July 2001; Charles Lee recounted his experience of 3 years in a Chinese prison where he was subjected to torture and brainwashing.

David Funkhouser of the Hartford Courant interviewed Jane Dai. In his report, David reported Dai's story and also wrote:

"A woman from Munich, Germany, stopped a reporter and said, "You're from America. I need your support. I'm from Germany. I need your support."

She was holding a poster with a picture of an emaciated prisoner tortured in a Chinese prison, with the words "Chinese Concentration Camp Sells Human Organs for Huge Profit."

As she spoke, tears began rolling down her face."

Clarifying the Truth to Passersby

Practitioners were out on the major streets of the Yale campus before 7 a.m. They unfurled banners and displayed truth-clarifying posters and repeatedly clarified the truth to the Chinese welcome party holding the Communist regime's blood-red flag. Some practitioners read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party [An Epoch Times publication revealing the nature and history of the Chinese Communist Party. Click here for more information.] aloud for these Chinese, and sure enough, some were listening and pondering.

Many passing-by westerners also received a special pamphlet which detailed how the Chinese Communist regime has been widely harvesting organs from living practitioners and then cremating their bodies in the past several years. After learning the truth, many westerners told practitioners: You have done a good thing, keep it up.

A westerner asked a practitioner how to obtain a copy of Zhuan Falun [The main text of Falun Gong]. He said that he was practising Tai Chi and was very interested in Falun Gong. The practitioner then said that he could visit www.falundafa.org to download a free copy.

Police officers on duty were also touched by practitioners' persistent and peaceful spirit. One asked a practitioner to give him a copy of the pamphlet and offered to hold the banner for the practitioner momentarily. Other officers chatted with practitioners to find out more about the truth.

Around 1p.m., Hu's motorcade left Yale and passed by practitioners' giant banners. On Rainbow Road adjacent to the Yale airport, there were also some practitioners displaying banners. When Hu's motorcade passed by, practitioners shouted "Falun Dafa is good" and "Stop the persecution of Falun Gong". The motorcade had no way of hiding from the "Thoroughly Investigate Chinese Labour Camps and Prisons' Persecution of Falun Gong" banners and practitioners' outcries before it entered the airport.

A policeman who was on duty on the street said that he had read news about Falun Gong every day during Hu's visit, and therefore he had learned about the practice and many facts about the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong.
