German Falun Dafa practitioners and Tuidang volunteers in the Black Forest area came to Weil am Rhein on October 14, 2017, to tell people about the meditation discipline. Located near the borders of Germany, France, and Switzerland, Weil is Rhein is the most southwesterly town in Germany and a suburb of the Swiss city of Basel.
Ms. Bruker, a passerby, said she did not know about Falun Dafa previously. She read a pamphlet and was surprised to hear about the harvesting of organs from living practitioners in China. She signed a petition to help practitioners and asked if she could make a donation. A practitioner thanked her but explained that they do not accept donations.
One tourist from the Philippines read the pamphlet and said forced organ harvesting is unacceptable. “I did not know a government would support something like this. Whoever does this must be brought to justice.”
Several Chinese tourists also stopped and talked with volunteers. Some of them agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party upon hearing of the crimes committed by the regime.
When one man was hesitant to do so, a tourist from Russia said she knew that the Communist Party has always used lies and violence in its rule. “And that is why it was wiped out in history,” she added. The Chinese tourist thanked her and the volunteers. He said, “Now I know why this is important. Please help me quit the communist organizations too.”
