(Clearwisdom.net) On November 19, 2004, Falun Dafa practitioners in Wellington, New Zealand were invited to speak about Falun Dafa and the persecution in China to law students at the University of Wellington.

Practitioners talked for about an hour about how the practice was introduced to the public in China, and how it has been spread to over 60 countries worldwide. They highlighted the differences between Falun Dafa and other qigong practices, explaining how Falun Dafa emphasizes the cultivation of one's character. They discussed in greater detail as to how Falun Dafa has, since July 20 of 1999, been persecuted in China. They showed pictures of practitioners being tortured, a VCD on how Falun Dafa is spreading and the truth of the so-called Tiananmen Square Self-immolation incident.

During the question and answer session, students asked practitioners a number of questions, asking why Falun Dafa is persecuted and whether Falun Dafa has a political agenda. CDs containing truth-clarifying information were distributed to the students. Several students approached the speakers and praised them, "Thank you. You did a great job!"

At the end of the session, practitioners demonstrated the five sets of exercises.
