The five dance companies that comprise Shen Yun Performing Arts played to full houses in Argentina, Australia, France, and the United States over the last two weeks. Those in the audiences represented a broad range of cultures and backgrounds, yet one thing they had in common was a sincere appreciation for the positive impact Shen Yun brings to the communities they visit.
A major online news aggregator published an in-depth story about the Chinese regime's labor camps and organ harvesting atrocities, as recounted by two Falun Gong practitioners who survived the persecution and now live in Canada. Although both women were eventually released due to family connections and efforts to secure their release, "Other prisoners were not so fortunate. Some of them arrived in the middle of the night and were gone before dawn.”
Practitioners held a rally and march in Hong Kong on April 23 to mark the beginning of practitioners' peaceful resistance against the Communist Party’s persecution. They also called for the prosecution of former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin, who launched he persecution, and gave support to those who have withdrawn their memberships in the Communist Party. Politicians and activists gave speeches expressing their support for the practitioners' efforts.
Falun Gong practitioners from Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi came together for an experience-sharing conference in Atlanta.
Crowds of onlookers had the opportunity to learn more about this peaceful meditation practice and the persecution it faces in China.
Spectators warmly welcomed the band and organizers invited the group to return again next year.
