(Minghui.org) The fourth Arctic Race of Norway was held from August 11 to 14, 2016. Many spectators gathered in cities where the race passed by, including in Mo i Rana on August 13. Falun Gong practitioners went there to raise awareness on the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of the spiritual discipline.

Many locals came to watch the practitioners' exercise demonstration and inquire about the practice and the persecution in China, including one woman who had tried many qigong practices before to improve her health. She wished to learn Falun Gong and was horrified upon hearing about the Chinese communist regime's state-sanctioned killing of Falun Gong practitioners and selling their organs for profit.
