California: Introducing Falun Gong on Earth Day
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in Sacramento, California, participated in Earth Day activities at Sacramento Community College on April 23 and 24, 2013. They demonstrated and taught Falun Gong exercises, distributed flyers and colorful paper lotus flowers, and raised awareness about the brutal persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
A continuous stream of faculty, staff and students visited the Falun Gong booth and received introduction materials.
A man who stopped at the booth told the practitioners that he had heard about the persecution a few years ago. He said, “Who doesn't know that the CCP is bad?” He wanted to learn Falun Gong and thought his mother would also be interested.
Another woman who stopped at the booth was very happy to learn that Falun Gong is a cultivation practice of Buddha School. She said she would like to invite Falun Gong practitioners to introduce Falun Gong to some Buddhist groups that she was involved in.
During the Earth Day event on campus, one student came during a break between her classes to learn all five sets of the Falun Gong exercises.
The Chinese people on campus were very friendly to Falun Gong, whereas in the past many Chinese would be distant or harsh due to being deceived by the Chinese regime's propaganda against Falun Gong. Practitioners could see that more and more Chinese people had learned the truth about Falun Gong as the CCP's lies have been exposed.
