(Minghui.org) The Divine Land Marching Band in Malaysia performed in a well-known tourist destination, the historical city of Malacca, on January 30, 2016, to welcome the coming of Chinese New Year. The band, consisting of Falun Gong practitioners, performed from a double-deck bus on main streets and at scenic sites. They brought the jubilant atmosphere and the grace of Falun Dafa to local people and tourists.
Both sides of the double-deck bus displayed large banners, reading, “Falun Dafa is Good.” The bus proceeded from the Melaka Sentral Terminal along the route to scenic sites. The band performance was welcomed wherever it was heard.
Mohd Khairi, a member of a military marching band in Malaysia, watched the Divine Land Marching Band performance at Jonker Walk, the band’s last stop. He said he played several musical instruments. He said excitedly, “The band performance is at an international level. As a member of a military marching band, I know band performances well. I am interested in music.”
Besides Jonker Walk, the band also performed at other scenic sites, including The Stadthuys, Menara Taming Sari, and others.
The band performed on the double-deck bus at the Stadthuys. Chinese tourists there were happy to see the performance, and many took photos. A practitioner distributed information materials to them. One tourist said excitedly, “You can perform here!” Practitioner Su said, “Falun Gong practice is allowed here.” She asked the tourist, “Do you know that Falun Dafa is good?” The tourist replied, “We knew it a long time ago.” He continued taking photos of the band.
Kasim is a retired businessman who came to Malacca with his family to tour the area. They watched the band performance and liked the music. A practitioner talked with them about the persecution of Falun Gong in China and the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) live organ harvesting from practitioners. Kasim said in grief, “Too cruel! Such brutal acts are not acceptable. We are not animals, but humans!”
Over 200,000 Falun Gong practitioners and their family members have filed criminal complaints with China’s Supreme Procuratorate and Supreme Court against Jiang Zemin, former head of the CCP. Jiang abused his power in initiating and continuing the persecution of Falun Gong. In Asia, over 1.23 million people have signed petitions in support of lawsuits against Jiang. Kasim said, “We need to do this, and should support it. Justice will prevail.”
Three students, Anis, Nadiatul, and Nurul, were waiting for bus together at Melaka Sentral Terminal. A practitioner told them about Falun Gong, the persecution in China, and the CCP's live organ harvesting.
They were sympathetic for the Falun Gong practitioners who have been tortured, but grateful to the practitioner who told them the facts. They said they wished the persecution will end as soon as possible. They all signed the petition to support the lawsuits against Jiang without hesitation.
