October is the height of the tourist season in Taipei, and waves of visitors from mainland China head for the famous local tourist spots. Everywhere they go, they run into Falun Gong practitioners and Tuidang volunteers to learn what this cultivation practice really is and how brutal the persecution in China is.
The tourists from China were very supportive of what the practitioners were doing.
A retired Chinese police officer, who said he was very familiar with the persecution, quit the communist party with a volunteer s’ help.
“Every Falun Gong practitioner was watched by six police officers in my area. I am glad that you have the freedom in Taiwan,” he said.
Another senior Chinese gentleman said, “I probably know about the persecution better than you. One of my best friends was badly tortured because of his Falun Gong belief. Falun Gong practitioners are all very good people.”
He also quit the communist party with volunteers’ help.
