(Clearwisdom.net) To introduce Falun Gong to people who seek physical and mental well-being, and also for the sake of calling on more people to help stop the persecution against the practice in China, a group of practitioners from Gothenburg and nearby cities attended the Way of Life and Health Expo. This expo, held in the Gothenburg Town Hall on the 4th and 5th December, promoted healthy ways of living and helped people to understand the concepts of mind, body and spirit merged together as one.
Signing the petition to call for an end to the persecution
The Falun Gong display attracted lots of people, and many people came to the booth one after another to sign a petition calling for an end to the persecution. Many of them already knew a little about Falun Gong and the human rights abuses against people who practice in China.
In front of the Falun Gong booth, one practitioner who is usually very busy in other projects to raise awareness about the persecution met many of her old colleagues and friends who had lost contact with her, as if this place and time was arranged long ago for the rendezvous.
Clarifying the truth
People who came to find out more stayed quite a while near the Falun Gong booth. Some of them asked about the present situation in China with genuine concern. Some discussed the Chinese government's deplorable human rights record and others asked for details of the exercise classes in Gothenburg where they could learn the practice for free. A reporter from a local radio station interviewed a practitioner, mainly about the benefits that Falun Gong can bring to people's character, as well as the Chinese Communist regime's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.
