(Clearwisdom.net) In response to the Government Administration Cabinet's "Double the number of people doing exercises" project, Falun Gong practitioners from Pingtung County approached the local government proposing a "Community Falun Dafa Exercise and Achievements Exhibit." They clarified the truth to the government officials, sharing their own experiences of improving their moral level and health. The Education Department approved the proposal.

On November 27, 2005, about 400 Falun Dafa practitioners demonstrated the five sets of exercises in the county stadium. There were practitioners from 4- or 5-year-old children to seniors in their 70s and 80s, including people from all walks of life. Since Falun Dafa is easy to practice and has such obvious health benefits, many county officials and elected representatives supported the event by encouraging the residents to practice the exercise. The VIPs attending the event included the Mayor of Pingtung City, Mr. Wang Jingshi, county mayoral candidate Cao Qihong, city mayoral candidate Tu Yijuan, and candidates for county representative Li Qingsheng and Li Shibin. Several guests called out, "Falun Dafa is good" together with the practitioners.

Recently, the "bird flu" has caught the attention of the world. Pingtung Falun Gong practitioners invited Professor Chen Yanling, director of the Minghui School Board of Education, to speak at the event about "bird flu." She introduced related information and specifically mentioned that the Chinese Communist Party is unwisely trying to cover up the truth of the problem, the consequences of which may affect great numbers of people throughout the world. She cited the immune system research conducted by Professor Feng Lili from the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and pointed out that Falun Gong practitioners' immune systems are more balanced and harmonized than those of non-practitioners. This has important ramifications in terms of diseases such as the "bird flu."

Many people immediately wanted to learn Falun Gong after watching the demonstration and learning about the rich content of Falun Dafa. They began to learn the exercise in the stadium.
