“I have seen you a few times,” said Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Tao to a Chinese tour guide at the Sydney Opera House in October 2015. “You may have heard our explanation of Falun Gong and our exposing the persecution of the practice in China. Have you quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations?”
“Not yet,” answered the tour guide. “I have listened to your and others’ explanation several times. As I was busy, I left without doing the renouncement.”
Ms. Tao said, “Let me give you an alias and help you withdraw from the Party.” The tour guide agreed to quit on the spot.
Ms. Tao continued, “As a tour guide, you should help your clients learn about the persecution. You will be rewarded for the good deed.”
Ms. Tao met the tour guide again about two months later, when he brought a new tour group to the Opera House. Ms. Tao talked to them and told them about the persecution and the CCP’s crimes. She also helped those who wished to renounce the CCP. The guide led the group to a lawn and told them about the surrounding scenery. As soon as he finished his narration, Ms. Tao said to the tourists, “For those who have not done so, please quit the Party and its affiliated organizations for a safe future.”
The tour guide said, “Yes, quit it, everyone!”
Ms. Tao continued, “Your tour guide takes good care of you. Those who have not withdrawn from the Party, please do so!”
Except for two tourists who said they would think about it, the rest, over ten people in the group, all renounced the Party.
One tourist shouted, “Falun Dafa Is Great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Is Great!” Others repeated the words quietly.
As they prepared to leave, Ms. Tao told them, “Please tell your family and friends to quit too. And please recite often, ‘Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!’”
Several tourists showed their appreciation with both hands pressed in front of their chests. “Thank you!” they said.
