Wroclaw, Poland: Signature Collection to Protest the Persecution of Falun Gong (Photos)

(Clearwisdom.net) On July 9 and 10, 2011, Falun Gong practitioners from Poland gathered in Wroclaw City and introduced Falun Dafa to the local people. Wroclaw is the fourth largest city in southwest Poland. Before World War II, Wroclaw was famous as both a commercial and industrial city as well as a culturally German city.

In downtown Wroclaw Falun Gong practitioners handed out introductory brochures about Falun Gong to local citizens and tourists passing by, put up exhibition boards, and told the public that Falun Gong practitioners are still being persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), a horror that began 12 years ago. Several practitioners demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises, and signature forms were placed on a nearby table.

Many passersby stop to study display boards, read the brochures carefully, or listen to practitioners tell about the ongoing persecution in China. People showed great indignation over the persecution. They signed the petitions to express their concern and say “Stop persecuting Falun Gong!”

When a family passing by found out about the persecution, the parents went straight to the table and signed the petition. The two children in the family asked practitioners, “Can we sign the petition to support Falun Gong like our parents?” When they got confirmation, they neatly and proudly signed the petition like their parents.

Some passersby said that what CCP is doing is incomprehensible. After they finished signing, some still asked, “The music is so peaceful and the exercises are so gentle, how can the CCP brutally persecute practitioners like this?” Someone answered, “I know the Communist Party well, and it never does anything good.”

Some people asked, “How many more signatures do you still need?” and then called on spectators: “Everyone, come here and sign your name! The persecution must end immediately. It cannot be allowed to go on!”

After a blind man heard the facts from a practitioner, he said, “I support you. You are doing the right thing. I want to sign the petition! Would you take me to where I can sign?” The practitioner helped him to the table and gave him a pen. The man asked, “Could you hold my arm, please? Do I sign here? OK, I've signed.”

Although it was hot, practitioners stayed to raise awareness about Falun Dafa. The public offered their support and encouraged the practitioners. Several pedestrians encouraged them, “There should be more activities like yours! Could you hold more activities like this, please?”
