(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners put up large banners and posters on Auburn Street in Sydney on May 24, 2015. Information and photos conveyed the benefits of the spiritual practice and the gruesome persecution of its practitioners in China, especially the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) state-sanctioned forced harvesting of organs.
After understanding the facts, many passersby signed the petition urging the Chinese regime to stop the killing of Falun Gong practitioners. Quite a few who came from China, instead of shying away from the issue, chose to support the practitioners’ efforts and quit the CCP and its affiliates.

Repulsed by Forced Organ Harvesting, Locals Sign Petition to Condemn the Crime
Auburn residents sign the petition condemning the Chinese regime for harvesting organs from unwilling Falun Gong practitioners illegally imprisoned in China for their beliefs.
Many local residents stopped by to understand how the Chinese government takes organs from illegally detained practitioners in China and sells them for profit. The majority signed the petition to condemn the activity and demand it stop immediately.
Joie signs the petition calling for an end to the CCP’s forced harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners in China.
Joie has signed the petition at more than one of the practitioners’ activities. Distressed by the cruelty of the persecution, he is concerned that it be stopped.
Jenny Liu watched the Australia SBS Dateline program “Human Harvest” in April. It really upset her. She said she wanted to sign the petition to help stop this immoral crime.
Overseas Chinese Eager to Quit the CCP
Within a few hours, volunteers at a table near the posters not only helped passersby sign the petitions, but also helped dozens of Chinese to quit the CCP and its affiliates. According to the volunteers, most of the Chinese people agreed to quit without needing much persuasion.
Some Chinese people said that they already knew about the brutal persecution, but hadn’t yet had a chance to renounce their memberships in the Party organizations. They were glad to find help that day.
Chinese Admire and Appreciate Practitioners’ Selfless Efforts
One young Chinese student was surprised to see Falun Gong practitioners. He said that one could not find any Falun Gong activities in China after the persecution started.
He said that this was the first time he had heard about the persecution and forced organ harvesting, because the government in China controls all the media, meaning that the people in China only get to hear the government propaganda which defames Falun Gong. He chose to quit the Young Pioneers after learning the facts.
A Chinese woman told the practitioners that she admired and was grateful for their selfless efforts during the past years. She had read articles about Falun Gong in the Epoch Times for many years, and believed that the CCP’s crimes should be exposed.
As a Christian she thought that the Chinese regime was evil, and she had already quit the CCP. She also frequently discussed the persecution with her friends and asked them to quit the CCP, too.
