Australia: Queensland Practitioners Hold Activities to Raise Awareness of the Six-Year Persecution (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On July 16, practitioners came to King George Square in Brisbane to hold activities to promote Falun Dafa and raise awareness about the 6-year persecution.
Falun Gong exercise demonstration
While a group of practitioners demonstrated the graceful Falun Gong exercises, on the other side of the square, next to a banner reading, "Now happening in China," several practitioners reenacted some of the torture methods used in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China.
Practitioners also set up a "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" art exhibition to show the beauty of Falun Dafa and the unyielding spirit of practitioners in the face of the brutal persecution.
Several Western practitioners sang songs including, "Coming for You" and "Be Saved," and their performance attracted many visitors, including local residents and tourists from Mainland China. A lot of people stopped to watch the different exhibitions and asked questions. After learning about the truth, many signed the petition in support of Falun Gong, while some took photos of the anti-torture exhibition.
Many people come to learn the truth of Falun Gong
When a reporter asked several visitors if they felt that the event was political, all of them said: "This has nothing to with politics. Such a brutal persecution should be exposed so that the world can take action to stop it."
A tourist guide saw that an elderly practitioner was reenacting a torture method. She was very touched and said: "Aunty, I am so sad to see you like this! Is this really happening in China? Will your actions be helpful to the situation in China?" The practitioner told her that the tortures they were demonstrating were just the tip of the iceberg. The practitioner said, "Many people have learned about the truth of Falun Gong and the persecution as the result of our efforts, and we will continue until the persecution ends."
A lot of Mainland Chinese tourists left their groups to see the exhibition, and they took truth-clarifying materials and listened to the practitioners' explanation.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., people came in a constant stream to see the exhibition. The practitioners were busy the whole time with truth-clarification. By the time the event concluded, there were still quite a few people lingering around to ask more questions.
