Falun Gong practitioners held a “Great Wall of Truth,” holding banners and standing side-by-side along the sidewalks, along with a signature drive event, at Campsie, a city known for its concentration of office buildings and shopping malls, southwest of Sydney.
People expressed their support for Falun Gong, and many Chinese people joined Tuidang, the movement to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations during the event.
Many residents who viewed the information on the display boards and banners were shocked at how incredibly cruel this persecution is and signed the petition form calling for an end to the CCP’s systematic forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.
Some asked what more they could do to help Falun Gong.
More than 50 Chinese people registered their withdrawals from the CCP and its affiliated organizations during the three-hour event. Some other Chinese people said they had already done so through the Quitting the CCP Service Centers, locally or in nearby cities.
There were also some Chinese who at first denied being members of the Communist Party or its affiliated organizations, but then decided to quit the CCP after learning the facts about the persecution. A Chinese woman visiting her child in Sydney was one of them.
When being asked whether she had withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations, she said, “I am not a member of any of them”. But she was deeply moved and changed her manner after a Tuidang volunteer told her the story of the woman pictured on the banner, Ms. Gao Rongrong, whose face was disfigured from electric baton torture in Chinese jail, and who later died in police custody.
She also understood, through the communication with the Falun Gong practitioners at the site, that the “Self-immolation Incident on Tiananmen Square” was purely a fabrication staged by the CCP, and the organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners is an appalling evilness that is really occurring and perpetrated by the CCP.
The woman finally agreed and decided to quit the Young Pioneers (affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party) using an alias. She then took an informational flyer and began reading it.
