(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners from Ottawa, Canada, visited Algonquin College on April 5, to introduce this ancient Chinese cultivation practice to the students and faculty. They set up a table in the Student Commons, where they demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises and talked to the college community about the practice and the 18-year persecution that Falun Gong has been facing in China.

Introducing Falun Gong at Algonquin College.

Many students were interested in meditation and traditional Chinese culture. Some had heard of Falun Gong and the persecution and wanted to know more. Several people were quite interested in Falun Gong and said that they intended to follow up on the information presented in the flyers.

Over the course of the day's event, over a dozen students from China learned the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution in their home country, and renounced their memberships in the Chinese Communist Party-affiliated organizations for young people.
