(Minghui.org) A five-month-long “Art of Zhen, Shan, Ren” International Exhibition was held in Zurich, the largest city in Switzerland, from November 2013 to March 2014. This renowned historic city is home of large financial institutions and luxury merchandise. Many tourists, including many from China, were attracted to the exhibition.
One gentleman came with his wife and 11-year-old daughter. He said he worked for a foreign company in Beijing. “I often travel on business and I have heard about Falun Gong through the Epoch Times newspaper. I have also read Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and know about quitting the CCP for a safe future. Can I quit the CCP here?”
A practitioner replied, “Of course, please put your name here. I know some Chinese are concerned about their safety when going back to China. You can use a pseudo name if you want.”
“No, real name. All my family, three people, will quit using real names,” said the gentleman.
One lady, who was hosting a concert in Zurich, came to the exhibition with her pianist. She said her grandfather was a famous Kuomintang general who led a war against the Japanese invasion last century. She was upset that the CCP had distorted history and claimed credit for defeating the Japanese. In the end, she gladly quit the CCP.
A couple from Shanghai came to Zurich to visit their daughter, a college student. They said, “Falun Gong was very popular before the suppression in 1999. Many of our friends stopped practicing it afterwards. What’s going on now?” A practitioner told them that the persecution was ongoing, just becoming more secretive. After the practitioner explained to them why people should quit the CCP, the lady agreed and repeatedly thanked the practitioner.
Two Chinese ladies who came to see the art exhibition chatted with a practitioner. One of them married a Swiss man, and had lived here for 14 years. The other had lived there for ten years. When the practitioners showed them paintings that depicted the torture of practitioners in China, including live organ harvesting, one of them said, “The CCP is really bad, and it can do things beyond imagination.” She added that people in China seemed numb now, and only cared about money.
When asked if they had quit the CCP, both said that they had not paid dues for many years. The practitioner then explained to them that they should still formally quit, because everyone vowed to devote him or herself to the Party when they joined. The two ladies then became serious and said, “Yes, please.”
