Summer has always been the busiest season for Falun Gong practitioners and Tuidang volunteers (Tuidang in Chinese means Quit the party). At countless community events, local festivals, and tourist spots all over the world.
The Chinese community in Boston held its annual gala in Chinatown, which included Chinese culture demonstrations, along with arts and cuisine.
Local volunteers set up a booth to introduce Falun Gong and Tuidang.
As practitioners demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises, the beautiful music attracted many people. One woman from Cape Cod said she found the practitioners’ booth by following the music. With great interest, she learned the exercises. Afterward, she was amazed by the inner peace she experienced.
Some Chinese also stopped by the booth. A retired Chinese military officer talked to practitioners for a long time. He said he had already quit the Communist Party when he was in China. In America, he has learned more about Falun Gong.
Volunteers from Lörrach, Germany, set up a booth in a local business district, where stores’ summer sales attracted many customers.
Local resident Bernd read the practitioners’ display board for a long time and came to talk to them.
“I have seen the reports on the persecution,” he said. “It is unbelievable that modern society has become so horrible. It is great that you guys are telling people the truth.
A Chinese family watched the practitioners for a long time. The father, a visiting scholar, finally came over and said, “We cannot see Falun Gong in China, but I’ve seen you guys everywhere in Europe. Amazing.”
Practitioners then told him about the forced organ harvesting. The scholar was shocked, “That is unacceptable! No wonder the Communist Party censors the Internet. They don’t want people to know the truth.”
He accepted volunteers’ help to quit the Party and said he would convince his family and friends to quit once he returns to China.
