Friedrichstrasse, the most famous shopping street in Berlin, was the scene of a simulation of organ harvesting, reenacted by Falun Gong practitioners. This was the first time for such an event in this area. Practitioners from the German areas of Rheinland-Westfalen and Berlin jointly held the event to expose the crimes of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in removing organs from live Falun Gong practitioners.

The simulations performed by the practitioners caught the attention of many passersby. A person covered with a white cloth with "bloodstains," was lying on an "operating table." Nearby was standing a "surgeon" in doctor's scrubs, with a scalpel in one hand and a sign in the other which read: "Removing organs from live people - killing - cremation." In order to help the people of Berlin learn about the truth as they hurried by, practitioners used a loudspeaker to briefly tell people about the genocidal persecution against Falun Gong practitioners happening in China.
Twenty metres away from the practitioners' event was the conference hall where the First International Exposition of Higher Education sponsored by China was being held. Students and other Chinese people coming in and out of the conference responded differently to the Falun Gong practitioners' event. Some came over and carefully looked at the pictures showing the torture experienced by practitioners in China. They asked the practitioners many questions and also took copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.
Although some Chinese people were worried about talking to the practitioners, they couldn't help feeling curious about the information. After overcoming their fear, they came to the practitioners' stall from time to time, and finally took some information materials. Some people were too afraid to ask for materials. Western practitioners had their own particular methods of drawing these people's attention, through the loudspeaker. Andreas from Ruhr said, "As soon as I saw Chinese passing by, I spoke in Chinese, saying, 'Stop persecuting Falun Gong' using the loudspeaker. Every Chinese person turned their head and looked back."
News also came from the German Parliament the next street over: The Parliamentary Committee of Letters and Calls has already started investigating the situation in China, because they have received large numbers of letters about the CCP removing organs from live Falun Gong practitioners.
However, it is obvious that what frightens the CCP most is another group of people who have asked to go to China and investigate the case independently. Ms. Lei Zhou, chief editor of the European Branch of The Epoch Times, who also participated in the activity, accepted an interview. She said that on April 19th, she went to the Chinese Embassy in Berlin and applied for a visa on the "public invitation" of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the CCP at the end of March. She hoped that she could make investigations into forced labour camps, prisons and the related hospitals where organs are removed from live Falun Gong practitioners in China. The result was that her visa application was rejected in 15 minutes.
Ms. Lei Zhou is one of the first team of five members from "The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG)" (abbreviated, "Coalition to Investigate the Persecution"). Members of the coalition are from North America, Australia and Europe.
On April 7th, "The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution" publicised the first listing of the proposed scope of evidence collection. It includes labour camps, prisons, hospitals and related facilities where Falun Gong practitioners have been illegally detained, persecuted and their organs removed when they were still alive. These places are spread among 31 provinces and municipalities directly under the Central Government in China. As the Coalition has been founded by the Falun Dafa Association and the Minghui/Clearwisdom.net website, its members are all overseas Chinese who came from Mainland China. Analysts believe that the CCP is most afraid of Falun Gong practitioners, as these people who have come out of the CCP's system will go back to China and make investigations because they are familiar with the CCP's tricks and are not easily deceived. The first group of members of the Coalition has recently been refused visas by China.
Ms Zhou said, "This [the visa rejections] has shown that China wasn't sincere at all when they invited people overseas to enter China and make investigations. Every time they invite people abroad to investigate, it is just for show. This, on the other hand, has also proved that the persecution of Falun Gong does exist."
During the activity, German people signed the petition supporting Falun Gong, and German police officers also accepted leaflets disclosing the facts about the CCP harvesting organs from live people. A police officer who was from the former East Berlin said, "I can understand the reason why so many Chinese people have stood up for their human rights. I also took part in activities against the Communist Party when the Berlin wall was falling."
