(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners held an event in downtown Amsterdam to tell people about the peaceful meditation practice of Falun Gong on March 21, heralding the arrival of spring.

Drawn by the tranquil exercise music and gentle exercise movements, many people stopped to ask questions and learn more.

“What is Falun Gong? What's on your mind during meditation?” asked a city officer as he was watching the exercise demonstration. He became even more interested after hearing practitioners answer his questions and reading the display boards on hand. He asked, “How do you achieve serenity during meditation.”

Local residents and visiting tourists learned about the persecution of Falun Gong in China, including the forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. Many signed a petition to show their support and expressed their hope that the brutality would soon end.

The display was set up adjacent to Chinatown and numerous Chinese people were able to visit. Two were willing to learn the exercises and three decided to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) after learning about its horrific brutality.
