The National Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan was built in 1972 as a memorial to commemorate the Republic of China’s founding father Sun Yat-Sen. It is a must-see attraction for tourists from mainland China.
Falun Gong practitioners in the Taipei area demonstrate the exercises, together with Tuidang (quit the Chinese Communist Party center) volunteers, they distribute information and advise mainland Chinese tourists to renounce their memberships in the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Mr. Chen started practicing Falun Gong in 2001. A few days ago, a woman in her 70s got lost and asked Mr. Chen Hou-chuan, one of the practitioners, for directions. She appeared to be a little anxious initially, but she became comfortable after Mr. Chen gave her detailed directions.
Mr. Chen spoke with her about the wrongs the CCP is responsible for. She said she knew full well that the Party was bad and that it has caused morality in China to plummet. When Mr. Chen told her why it was important to quit the Party for a safe future, she agreed to quit using an alias.
Ms. Chang Ge-li started practicing Falun Gong in 2006.
During the Chinese New Year this year, a tour guide led a group of more than 30 mainland Chinese tourists straight to the poster boards and encouraged them to read the truth. A man in his 20s, who said he knew a lot about Falun Gong, told Ms. Chang, “Nowadays we can see a lot of information by getting around the internet firewall. We know all this (information about Falun Gong). However, China is changing. I believe China will definitely become better.”
Ms. Chang reminded him, “There are countless problems in China, such as tainted milk powder, lack of food safety, poisonous vaccines, child abuse in kindergartens, and so on. But the victims who complain about these problems are arrested on false charges, while the perpetrators are still at large.
“Also, the lawyers who defend basic human rights for the minorities either go missing or get arrested. If China truly wants to be better, why is this happening? Have you thought about this?”
The young man thought for a few seconds and then said, “Well. That is definitely how it looks.” The young man got the message and agreed to renounce his memberships in the Communist Youth League and Young Pioneers, affiliates of the CCP. He gratefully shook hands with Ms. Chang and said, “Thank you!”
The volunteer Huiyi has been giving informations to Tourists at Memorial Hall for seven years. Recently, she started a conversation with a woman from China by commenting, “When people raise their fists to swear an oath to join the CCP or one of its affiliated organizations, they become a part of the Party.
We all hope that innocent people will not be held responsible for the CCP’s crimes. Now you are here in Taiwan and can see factual information that you can’t see in China. You should cherish this great opportunity and withdraw from the Party for a safe future.”
The woman said nothing, but the woman sitting next to her blurted out, “I want to quit the Party!” The first woman seemed to wake up and asked Huiyi to give her more information. The two women then quit the Communist Party’s Young Pioneers and thanked Huiyi.
