(Clearwisdom.net) Heerlen city is located in the south border area of Holland, in the suburbs. Two local practitioners invited fellow practitioners to join their celebration of World Falun Dafa Day on the 13th of May and to help tell local people about Falun Dafa. Many people asked about the practice and at the same time they heard how the communist regime is persecuting Falun Gong in China.

People come to ask for information on Falun Gong and the persecution of Falun Gong in China

The 13th May 2006 was the seventh World Falun Dafa Day and the fourteenth year since the practice was introduced to the public. A set of photo display boards detailed the remarkable history of Falun Dafa and the mercy and compassion of Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa. People who saw these photos could feel the beauty of Falun Gong. The pictures also exposed the uncompromising courage of Falun Gong practitioners in the face of seven years of persecution in China.

A young man asked why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecutes Falun Gong so brutally. A practitioner explained to him that the Chinese Government promoted Falun Gong when it was first introduced in China. But former CCP head Jiang Zemin was jealous of the number of people practicing Falun Gong, which was higher than the membership of the Communist Party, so he vowed to "exterminate" the practice and lead the evil CCP to start the genocidal persecution against Falun Gong practitioners. He said he would read the Falun Gong leaflet and the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party when he got home.

The practitioners spoke to an English teacher who just came back from five months work experience in China. She appeared three times in the afternoon in our event. She took material, read the posters and talked to our practitioners. In the end she said: "I must learn Falun Gong."
