(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Malaysia celebrated Chinese New Year by putting on a New Year Cultural Parade and a performance by the group's Divine Land Marching Band on the sixth and seventh day of the lunar new year.
Falun Dafa practitioners in Malaysia visited Mahkota Cheras, a rapidly developing town in Selangor on February 14, 2016 to put on a New Year cultural parade, a tradition since 2010.
The Falun Dafa group's Divine Land Marching Band, waist drum team, dragon dance team, and “celestial maidens” showcased traditional Chinese culture and beauty.
The Divine Land Marching Band visited Pulau Ketam (“Crab Island” in Malay), on the previous day, February 13. Riding a double decker cruise boat, the Divine Land Marching Band, performed for an hour and a half to residents in two major fishing villages around the island, offering them New Year's well-wishes.
A group of practitioners went to the port of the island at the same time to talk to people about Falun Dafa and the persecution of the spiritual practice by the Chinese Communist regime in China, particularly the regime's state-sanctioned organ harvesting from unlawfully imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners for profit.
The practitioners also collected signatures for a petition supporting lawsuits against former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin who launched the persecution of Falun Dafa 16 years ago. Many people signed the petition in hopes that Jiang will soon be brought to justice and thanked practitioners for working to raise awareness.
