(Clearwisdom.net) The application for the founding of "Asociacion Civil Estudio de Falun Dafa" (Civil Falun Dafa Study Association) was turned in about one year ago. However, during the past year, because continuous government strikes took place in the Argentine government, the processing of all applications was delayed. On April 16, 2002, the association was officially approved.

The purpose of the Falun Dafa Association is to encourage "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance" in society and promote Falun Dafa free of charge. The association's activities include voluntary group exercise teaching, discussion, introductory seminars and producing materials that promote "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance." The discussions and seminars can increase the participants' knowledge and understanding of "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance."
