On May 19th, 2007, Falun Gong practitioners in Stuttgart, southern Germany, held a Falun Dafa Information Day. It was the final day of Germany's football first-class league matches, football fans around the country swarmed into Stuttgart, during a very short few hours; tens of thousands of people heard the truth of Falun Gong.
|Passers-by shocked upon learning about the persecution of Falun Gong|
|People sign practitioners' petition one after to condemn the persecution|
In the early morning, practitioners set up a tent, put up demonstration boards, and hung ‘‘Falun Dafa is Good ’’ banners in both Chinese and German. The place for this Information Day was in King Street near the train station. It was the final day of Germany’s football premier league matches and football fans from the whole country swarmed into Stuttgart. The streets were very busy. It formed a clear contrast between the graceful exercise music and Falun Gong practitioners’ peaceful exercise movements and the noise of footballers. Some passing by football fans read out ‘‘Falun Dafa is Good’’ loudly, some copied the exercise movements.
In the morning, the activity became a little difficult due to football fans blowing, drinking, laughing and talking loudly; it was very difficult for them to calm down and pay attention to the persecution in China. There were only a few passers-by were willing to find out more. But the situation changed in the afternoon after the match was over, people were attracted by the information boards and the vivid pictures laid out on the ground. A German woman asked if anything would change by doing this. Falun Gong practitioners told her it could and that there were already many successful cases. She said politicians only wanted to do business with China, they wouldn’t do anything. At this time, two German men came and had an argument with her; they thought that the German government should crack down on the CCP by economic means.
The activity progressed very successfully and most of the passers-by who were asked were willing to sign, because they were shocked by the facts of the CCP harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. An old man who could not speak or hear signed the petition form after reading the contents of the petition form. A young girl said she saw Falun Gong practitioners’ performance in Vancouver, she thought that they were a peaceful group and should not be persecuted. A guy with her said that he had also read the main text of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun. They all signed the petition and said that they were happy to see that Falun Gong practitioners were here. Two high school girls took copies of ‘the "Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party’’ and other material, as they were doing a project related to China.
According to a report in newspaper,there were hundreds of thousands of football fans who came to Stuttgart, most of them saw the activity held by Falun Gong practitioners. It was really a fruitful Information Day, as result of tens of thousands of people were able to know the truth of Falun Gong during a very short few hours.
