New York based Shen Yun Performing Arts presented twenty-two shows in seven U.S. and Canadian cities on February 28 through March 5. The show was described as “extraordinary and “inspiring.” A former Toronto councillor commented, “...it is an experience of bringing the divine to this world, and it is in the costumes, in the fabrics, the colors, in the spirit of the show, in the smiles on the faces, and the beauty of the performances.”
The 22 practitioners who spoke at the gathering shared their thoughts on how they had benefited from the practice, how they studied the teachings and looked within to improve, and how they cooperated to tell people about Falun Dafa and the persecution faced by those who practice it in China.
Since January this year, Falun Gong practitioners from Stockholm, Sweden have been holding activities every week at three main subway stations downtown to raise awareness of the brutal persecution of the practice in China. “Many people still don't know about this. We should let more people know. It is horrifying,” said a woman who stopped to sign a petition.
The persecution of Falun Gong in China was highlighted and analyzed in detail in this recent report from Freedom House. Twenty two pages of the 142-page document focused on this severe, large-scale, human rights violation.

A judge scolded practitioner’s lawyer and adjourned the session after he said the lawyer was asking questions irrelevant to the case. Afterward the lawyer was surrounded and threatened.
