(Clearwisdom.net) June 20, 2004 was World Refugee Day. The office of the United Nations Refugee Council in Moscow organized an outdoor activity in the city's Youth Palace. As soon as Falun Gong practitioners in Moscow heard the news, they immediately contacted the organizer of the activity. They were too late to be scheduled, however, and the organizer could not fit the exercise demonstration and other performances by Falun Gong into the schedule. However, after explaining a little about Falun Gong, it was agreed that practitioners could come and distribute leaflets.
On June 20, Falun Gong practitioners brought all kinds of informational materials with them and arrived at the activity site early. Unexpectedly, they received great support from the staff, who not only arranged the exhibition stand for them, but also found chairs and a table for the practitioners to display the leaflets and flyers. Practitioners introduced Falun Dafa, exposed the ongoing brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China, and continuously demonstrated the five Falun Gong exercises on the grass beside the stand.
Many people came to learn the truth about Falun Gong. The organizer of the program said happily to practitioners, "It is such a wonderful cultivation way; I must learn it. Could you give me more materials so that I can share them with my friends and we can learn together." Many other people made the same request and said they wanted to learn the exercises together with their family and friends. They asked many interesting questions and wanted to find out the location of their local practice sites.
