October 19, 2016 | By a Falun Gong practitioner in Germany
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners held a signature drive on October 15, 2016 in Villingen-Schwenningen, a German city in the Black Forest. The signature drive petition called for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong in China.
This old town has less than 100,000 population, but attracts 80,000 visitors annually, and many tourist groups from China have also flocked here in recent years, as it retains the historical attractions and cultural heritage of the medieval Austrian lordship.

Police Officer: You’re Doing a Good Deed!
A police officer on duty came to the practitioners’ booth and said that she had expected it to be noisy because the permit was for a protest: protesting the persecution of Falun Gong in China. She didn’t expect that a protest would be so quiet. The exercise music was gentle and soothing, and discussions between Falun Gong practitioners and passersby were in low voices. People passing by to sign the petition showing support were in a continuous stream.
Encountering such a peaceful protest was a surprise for the police officer. She said she had never seen such a peaceful protest before.
She said it’s right that practitioners tell people about the forced organ harvesting atrocities in China. “You’re doing a good deed!” she said.
A Swiss Couple Shocked by Forced Organ Harvesting Atrocities in China
A couple from Switzerland learned about Falun Gong for the first time. They were outraged and signed the petition after they learned about the state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners in China.
The wife was shocked to learn that more than one million Falun Gong practitioners may have been killed for their organs by the Chinese Communist regime, according to the investigative results by a few independent investigators.
The husband said that if it is true, the Chinese Communist regime is the world’s top terrorist organization.

Local Residents: The Whole World Should Work Together to Stop Organ Harvesting
A local resident in his 60s said that people’s morality has slid down sharply nowadays, and their minds focus only on making money. “Such things as killing people and selling their organs for profit should not happen. The world is really finished if people have no morals.”
He also said that governments should stand up and say “No” to the forced organ harvesting atrocities. The whole world should work together to stop it.
