(Clearwisdom.net) On April 25, Falun Gong practitioners from Taipei held a press conference and rally at Freedom Square. Many Chinese tourists saw the rally and accepted truth-clarifying materials.

Mr. Lian Zhenli, a Falun Gong practitioner, came to the rally with his whole family. He often traveled to Shanghai before. He said he saw many Falun Gong practitioners doing exercises in Shanghai before 1999. He was not a practitioner back then. However, after he read the book Zhuan Falun, he realized that this is what he had been looking for. He said although Falun Gong practitioners have been suffering from the most brutal persecution, they don't have any hatred in their hearts. They just want people to know the truth of Falun Gong.

Ms. Huang is a high school teacher. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. She came to the rally with her daughter. She said that her whole family has benefited from practicing Falun Gong. She is happy that more and more people have started practicing it. Four teachers at her school are practicing it and the president of her school also recommended Falun Gong to the teachers. Her students also have learned the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. They help each other and encourage each other in their studies.

Ms. Huang's daughter doing the exercises

Ms. Huang's 10-year-old daughter is in the fourth grade. She is a young practitioner. At school, she is a model student and everybody likes her. She hopes that she can be a member of the Divine Land Marching Band some day. She saved money to buy a flute and has been practicing for 2 months. She hopes in the near future she can tell people that Falun Dafa is good through music.
