While Chinese tourists visiting the Eiffel tower experience the monument of Parisian history they unexpectedly learn a lesson of their own nation’s history.
Over the past several years, local Tuidang volunteers have been at the Eiffel Tower and other tourist’s attractions on a daily basis. They provide literature and tell Chinese tourists about the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) brutal history, particularly about the ongoing persecution of Falun Gong, and convincing Chinese tourists to take a stance against the injustice by withdrawing their Party memberships.
A banner reading, “Falun Dafa is good” has become a beacon for Chinese tourists. The guides tell their group members: “If you get lost, look for the Falun Gong banner,” or “Let’s separate now, and meet back at the Falun Gong banner in an hour.”
Some Chinese people asked how much money volunteers made by doing this every day. Ms. Jun explained that no one was paying them–they were all volunteers.
“We just want to tell you about the crimes that the Party has committed, and help you quit the Party. This is for your own good to take a stance against the CCP’s crimes.”
More Chinese people know the truth
On a sunny day Ms. Jun was surprised to hear as one of the tourists turned to the whole group and said, “The persecution is really true. One of my neighbors practiced Falun Gong. He was arrested a few years ago. He was beaten to death in jail a few days after his arrest.”
Another tourist from that group pointed at a Falun Gong practitioner’s picture on the display board and said: “I knew her, Ms. Zhao Qin, a college teacher in Beijing. She was beaten to death.”
Horrified by the brutality of the persecution, the entire tourist group decided to quit the Party.
Some people told Ms. Jun that they have heard about the movement of quitting the Party in China, and were glad to have their chance, in Paris, to finally publish their declarations of withdrawal. They encouraged other group members to seize this opportunity to quit the party, too.
