To help more people learn the facts, Falun Gong practitioners in Turkey invited more than thirty representatives from many organizations to the workshop, which consisted of four subjects: What is Falun Dafa, its worldwide spread, why the CCP wants to persecute Falun Dafa, and the CCP’s harvesting organs from practitioners.
The principles of Falun Gong, Truth-Compassion-Forbearance, its marvelous effect on illness healing and keeping fit, and the graceful five exercises drew the attention of the attendees, many of whom wanted to learn Falun Gong. After the workshop, many people bought the book Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong, and wrote down the address of the local practice site.
The practitioners also exposed the CCP’s eleven-year-long brutal persecution, and especially the CCP’s organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. Many of the attendees condemned the CCP’s atrocities. They took informational materials to let more people know about the CCP’s crimes.
