Hundreds of Falun Gong practitioners and supporters held a series of activities in Toronto on July 20, 2016. They exposed the persecution with large banners at the crossing of Queen and Yonge Streets in the afternoon, forming a “Great Wall of Truth.” Their activities received great support from the public.
“I Will Stand with You”
Many people who went to the Chinese Consulate for business learned the facts about the persecution from Falun Gong practitioners. One Chinese man watched the activity for a while, and signed the petition. He said he knew facts of the persecution.
A young man named Justin took many pictures of the activities. He said he was saddened by the persecution, especially the organ harvesting from living practitioners. He asked, “What can I do to help you? I will stand with you!”
“I Quit the CCP on This Special Day”
Ms. Wang, from the Tuidang Center (quitting the CCP center), received a phone call from Shanghai, China, at 3:00 a.m. on July 20. It was from a man named Yao. He said, “I know today is an anniversary commemorating Falun Gong’s struggle against the persecution, which started today 17 years ago. I know Falun Gong practitioners are nice people. I admire Falun Gong for walking through the dark days. I would like to announce that I quit the CCP on this special day.”
Yao added, “The CCP has bloody debts from the Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen Square Massacre, and the persecution of Falun Gong. It has killed countless lives. It’s a true evil cult. Assimilating to the Party nature would mean giving up human nature. I haven’t paid my party membership dues for years. But I would like to make this call to announce my formal withdrawal.” Mr. Yao asked Ms. Wang to help him quit the CCP using his real name.
