welcome. Many people were impressed by the Divine Land Marching
Band's orderly lineup and stirring performance. They stopped to
watch and took photos of the band. The head of Chiaotou Township

Village, Nantou County, Taiwan on December 13, 2008, when more than
three thousand Falun Gong practitioners held a large-scale group
exercise practice, and formed the words "Falun Dafa" in English and
"Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" in Chinese. Falun Gong
practitioners, enveloped in golden sunshine, performed the
exercises with uniform movements, along with the beautiful music.
The peaceful scene attracted both local residents and tourists.
(Clearwisdom.net) December 10, 2008 was International Human
Rights Day. On this day, on the side of a road in Rovaniemi, the
legendary home town of Santa Claus in the northern part of Finland,
Xiao Jin, a Falun Gong practitioner, together with her husband
Tommy (who is not a practitioner ), hung a banner and posters
introducing Falun Gong, and how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)
brutally persecutes Falun Gong practitioners in mainland China.
There were also posters calling on people to help rescue Xiao Jin's
mother and protesting against the inhuman persecution of Falun Gong
by the CCP, which has persisted for the past nine years.
