About a week before the Salons Bio & Co Exhibition in Strasbourg, officials from the Chinese Consulate contacted the host requesting a meeting regarding Falun Dafa. Realizing they were trying to pressure him to deny the Falun Dafa group's participation, he said to them, “We are in France, and we have our own thoughts and freedom.”
All year long, Falun Gong practitioners around the world hold activities and participate in all kinds of community events, telling the public what Falun Gong really is and exposing the brutal persecution of this ancient self-improvement practice in its home country, China.
Falun Gong is a peaceful practice that has great health benefits. Yet in China, where the practice was first introduced, the communist regime has persecuted Falun Gong for 18 years. The state even sanctions organ harvesting atrocities, where prisoners of conscience are killed for their organs. Falun Gong practitioners around the world routinely organize public events to introduce the benefits of the practice and to raise awareness about the persecution in China. This article highlights recent such events in Japan and Bulgaria.
Practitioners set up information stands and demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises in Ulm, Augsburg, Munich, and Stuttgart to introduce the Chinese meditation practice to more people.
