Shen Yun Performing Arts began the Taiwan leg of its Asia tour with 13 sold-out performances in Taipei and Taoyuan on February 15-24. Audience members admired the synchronization of modern technology and traditional arts, endowing ancient legends with new life. Lin Chuan, the Premier of Taiwan, said of the performance, “It perfectly demonstrates the beauty of art.”
Practitioners visited three cities–Ventspils, Liepaja, and the capital, Riga–to raise awareness of the ongoing persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party. Both local residents and tourists stopped to learn more about Falun Gong and events taking place in China. Many gave their encouragement and support for practitioners' efforts to let more people know about the persecution.
In the suppression of Falun Gong for the past 18 years, public servants that are meant to carry out the law and protect the people have been breaking the law and harming innocent citizens. However, there have been officials who were presented with the facts about the persecution and heeded the call to conscience. A successful appeal in Liaoning Province and similar cases are hopeful signs of a developing movement toward justice in China.
Practitioners held a rally, gave out information about the persecution, and demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises in downtown Södertälje on February 25 to raise awareness of the ongoing persecution of the self-cultivation practice in China.
