UK: Falun Gong Practitioners Perform at the Fact Art Center in Liverpool (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On April the 17th 2004, the Fact Art Center in Liverpool organized a show with the theme "A little peace in this changing world". Falun Gong practitioners were invited to join the show and used this opportunity to tell the audience about Falun Gong and the persecution in China.
The activity started from about midday and practitioners performed indoors
and outdoors at two sites. After practitioners performed a new dance called
"Turning Wheel," members of the UK Choir sang "Coming for
You" and practitioners demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises.
Passersby stopped and watched the performances. Many people came to our display
booth to find out more and take leaflets. For a period of time, people were
forming a long line waiting to sign a petition to stop the persecution in China.
A lady who was selling flowers nearby came over to us and gave us a bouquet of
flowers. She said to practitioners, "Thanks to all of you, your
performances are so lovely!"
Inside the auditorium, a western practitioner introduced Falun Gong to the audience: "Falun Gong is an ancient cultivation way which has its roots in the east. It not only improves people's health but it also enhances moral standards. Practitioners cultivate by following the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance." After the speech, two young practitioners demonstrated the five exercises. The audience enthusiastically requested leaflets and asked where they could learn the exercises.
After watching the practitioners' performances, the organizer said, "We are so happy to experience such an elegant and traditional eastern art here. We hope you can join our activities again in the future."
