Czech Republic: Touring the Cities of Moravia (Photos) (Part 4)
(Clearwisdom.net) Czech Falun Dafa practitioners organized a week-long tour around the cities of central Moravia so that the people there could learn more about the ongoing persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners in China. The persecution has already lasted 8 years and over 3,000 practitioners have had their lives taken by the Chinese communist regime.
Practitioners set up poster displays and handed out leaflets to let people know about the human rights abuses against Falun Gong in China
The fifth day of the tour was on Friday March 23rd in the city of Valasske Meziric??. Cold weather and rain mixed with snow could not stop the practitioners from being out on the streets, telling local people about the human rights abuses inflicted on Falun Gong in China. Many people wanted to find out more and expressed their concern about innocent practitioners having their internal organs harvested and sold to transplant seekers, then having their bodies cremated. One woman took a handful of leaflets and placed them at a City Information Center. Lots of people signed the petition calling for an immediate end to the organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners imprisoned in China.

After an invitation by the local community center, a seminar was held on Friday evening. Local people came and learned about the history of Falun Dafa, including about the awards Falun Dafa received in China and around the world. It was hard for people to fathom why the Chinese communist regime would go from supporting this practice, which brought better physical and spiritual health to tens of millions of Chinese people, to brutally persecuting the people who practice it. But the Czech people have also been through persecution by communist regimes so they could relate to the Chinese people in this aspect.
The five sets of Falun Gong exercises were demonstrated. Because people were very impressed by the exercises, a short lesson was given and people tried the first exercise for themselves. Many were pleasantly surprised when they immediately experienced the positive effects of this qigong practice. After many questions were raised and answered, some still wanted to know more and decided to continue learning the exercises at a later date.
