Two Chinese American tourists said to a Finish Falun Gong practitioner as they handed her six bottles of water, “You’ve been working hard! We can’t help you much so this is just to show our appreciation.” This happened on July 6 in Helsinki’s Sibelius Monument Park, a famous tourists site where Falun Gong practitioners set up a Falun Gong informational site.
Many tourists stopped in front of the display boards to read an open letter from the Falun Gong practitioners. It was translated into many languages, including English, Finnish, Swedish, French, Italian, Russian, Japanese, and Korean.
The letter ended by saying, “We are volunteering here because the persecution is still on-going, innocent people are still imprisoned, and countless Falun Gong practitioners have been killed and their organs sold for organ transplantation – economic profit. We don’t accept financial support or donations. However, we hope you can sign the petition to help end this persecution and killing.”
Many tourists signed on the petition after reading the open letter.
Chinese Tourist: “Falun Gong is the hope for our nation”
A Chinese man took a newspaper and information explaining how to break through the Chinese regime’s Internet firewall, to access information outside of China. He quit the CCP and thanked the practitioner who helped him, “It is not easy to come here every day. I believe that Falun Gong is the hope for our nation.”
A mother from Shanghai brought her daughter to read the display boards, and told her that the information was not accessible in China, but is true.
Chinese tour guides also encouraged their groups of tourists to take and read the printed materials provided by Falun Gong practitioners.
