Many methods were used by volunteers in previous years to awaken the conscience of people concerning the persecution of Falun Gong in China, including distributing materials and calendars to explain the truth, recordings and direct phone calls, emailing materials, and talking to people face-to-face. In the market, be it the buyers or sellers, the people are close to each other, moving through the crowd. In this place, everyone can be approached.
A Falun Gong practitioner thought of a method, which was putting each calendar in a bag, so that when the person agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations after understanding the truth, the calendar could be easily handed to that person. The results of using this method were very good.
Initially, only a few practitioners from our small Fa study group participated in this project. But now, more than ten practitioners are taking part in this project. We go to the various morning markets to talk to people, rain or shine, as long as it is not heavy rain, and the market is open.
We talk to people about quitting the CCP organizations to achieve safety and peace. Most people can accept that. Of course, there are individuals who do not want the materials, nor listen to the truth, and even want to report us. This is also the chance to let sentient beings make their own choice, and decide their positions in the future.
One day I clarified the truth to a person who had just retired from the government. I told him about our weekly publication that is rich in content, and contains facts that may never be seen from any other source. He accepted the publication and held it in his hand.
I asked him if he had heard about quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations to obtain safety and peace. He said that he had not heard about it as the Party seals off such information very tightly. I therefore told him the purpose of quitting the CCP, and he immediately agreed to it.
I once met a gentleman in his 60s, and gave him the weekly publication. He asked me what I was teaching. I told him that it was Falun Dafa. He said, “I only recognize Falun Dafa. Nowadays who in society cares about civilians? Only Falun Dafa practitioners are the best. You tell civilians how to protect their lives. However, the CCP does not let you save civilians, and even arrests and detains you. My neighbor has already been imprisoned for a few years!”
The gentleman continued, “I also want to learn Falun Dafa, but I am scared, and did not dare to learn it. I have read all the fliers and booklets that you distributed to the households. I just did not know where to quit the CCP. Luckily I met you today. Please help me quit the CCP and its youth organizations, the Chinese Youth League and the Chinese Young Pioneers! I do not want to be controlled by any of the CCP organizations – I am free!”
