Many people came to the festival. People were shocked when they learned about the brutal persecution. Many of them signed their names to support practitioners. They condemned the CCP and wanted to do something to help stop the persecution.

Before they left, many people shook hands with practitioners and encouraged them to keep raising awareness. A group of engineers from Egypt came to practitioners' booth. Although the practitioners didn't speak English very well, they still explained the facts to them. The engineers all signed their names to condemn the persecution.
