Group Exercise and Appeal to Stop the Persecution
Group exercises is one of the forms of cultivation that Master Li has given Falun Gong practitioners. Taiwan has more practitioners than any other country outside China, and many large scale group exercises have been held there, showing the harmony and beauty of Falun Dafa to the world.
On November 15, 2003, 10,000 people did the exercises in front of the President's Office as part of activities to support a lawsuit against former Chinese president Jiang Zemin
Falun Dafa was introduced to Taiwan in April 1995. People from all walks of life have begun cultivation, including university professors, doctors, lawyers, engineers, civil servants, police officers, farmers, business people, students, homemakers and so on. Over 1,000 practice sites covering over 300 townships and towns across Taiwan have been established, as well as over a dozen practice sites on Taiwanese islands such as Penghu, Jinmen and Mazu.
Over the past 13 years, Falun Dafa has spread to every corner of Taiwan, and it continues to flourish. The number of practitioners has been continuously increasing. Falun Dafa practitioners can be seen not only in parks in the morning, but also in many government departments and colleges and universities. It is well-known that Falun Dafa can strengthen one's health and purify one's mind. The practice has gained high praise from Taiwanese government officials at different levels and extensive support from people from all walks of life.
