(Clearwisdom.net) On May 7 2003, UK practitioners went to a Junior School in Cambridge to talk to a history class about the situation of women in China. They took advantage of this great opportunity to tell the pupils about the persecution of Falun Gong and the human rights of female practitioners.

The entire event seemed to be a series of fortunate coincidences. About eighteen months ago, a Cambridge Dafa practitioner went to this school for a job interview. Although she never went on to work at this school, she felt that she should return there to promote Falun Gong in the future. Since she was busy, she never got a chance to do this. However, recently one of her work colleagues attended a parent-teacher meeting at the school, during which the school authorities mentioned that they intended to invite someone to give a talk on Chinese history. Her colleague recommended this practitioner, and this happy coincidence brought her back to the school.

The school authorities wanted the practitioners to talk about the current social status of women in China and other facets of their lives. Using her own experiences, a Chinese female practitioner had a lot to say on this subject. Through talking about artist and Dafa practitioner Zhang Cuiying, who suffered eight months of torture in Chinese forced labour camps because she peacefully appealed for the human rights of persecuted practitioners, she let the students learn about Falun Gong and the appalling human rights situation for millions of women in China who want to improve their health through this peaceful practice. During the talk, the practitioner used a video and photos to help explain her points. The practitioners then demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises, and played the exercise instruction video. The students were very interested when they heard about the persecution of Dafa practitioners in China and the presentation was very successful. After the class, students signed their names to a petition one after another in the hope that this horrific persecution will end as soon as possible.

From this activity, we realised that we should let more people outside of China know about Falun Gong using a wide variety of methods. There are still a lot more things that we haven't done yet and we have realised that we should increase our efforts to let more people know the truth about Falun Dafa and the Jiang regime's human rights abuses in China.
