Oregon: Portland Dafa Practitioners Celebrate World Falun Dafa Day (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net May 14, 2003) On May 11, 2003, Dafa practitioners in Portland, Oregon arrived at the popular Riverside Park in the early morning and displayed truth-clarifying poster boards depicting the widespread of Falun Dafa around the world and exposing the brutal persecution. They gathered to celebrate the special occasion of May 13 --World Falun Dafa Day.
Riverside is a good place for people to take a walk and do exercises. Opposite the park is a weekend market, so people came in a stream. Banners reading, "Falun Dafa--Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance" and "World Falun Dafa Day" were especially beautiful in the bright sunshine, drawing the attention of many passersby. At the roadside, practitioners continuously demonstrated the five sets of gentle exercises. On the other side of the road, people attentively looked at every display board. Many people came to the table displaying truth-clarifying materials to learn about the truth of Falun Dafa. Many watched practitioners' exercise demonstration for a long time. Some wrote down their names on the signature-collection book for the rescue of Charles Li. Many other people were amazed at the peacefulness of the Dafa music "Pu Du." People appreciated the goodness of Falun Dafa and expressed that it was hard to understand the four-year persecution, and that they wanted to extend their helping hands.
We know that more people are waiting for us to clarify the truth. Let's strive forward diligently, and do well the three things Master has told us to do.
