Norway: Raising Awareness about Falun Gong at a Health Expo in Oslo
(Clearwisdom.net) An annual Health Expo was held in a gymnasium in Oslo on November 21. The three day Expo was held on a weekend and attracted a lot of people. Since Falun Gong has physically and spiritually benefited over one hundred million people around the world, the Falun Gong group has been invited to participate in the event every year.
In addition to the banners reading "Falun Gong in Norway", "The World Needs Truthfulness- Compassion-Forbearance", "Falun Gong Is Popular Around the World" and "Stop China's Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners," practitioners also demonstrated the five Falun Gong exercises at their booth. Various leaflets, Falun Gong exercises-teaching CDs, Falun Gong books and paper lotus flowers were displayed at the booth. Many visitors came over to view the material and asked questions about Falun Gong.
On the second day, practitioners demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises on the stage in the center of the exhibition hall, which attracted lots of warm applause and some people came backstage to ask for informational materials.
During the Expo, practitioners conducted two seminars teaching Falun Gong exercises. Throughout the Expo, some people asked for Falun Gong materials, others came to learn about Falun Gong seriously as well as purchase Falun Gong exercise teaching DVDs and books, while still others started to learn the Falun Gong exercises on the spot. Some people also said that they had started to practice Falun Gong at home.
