Falun Dafa Practitioners in Taiwan Celebrate World Falun Dafa Day
(Minghui.org) Full of gratitude for the wonderful benefits of Falun Dafa, Dafa practitioners in Taiwan celebrated the approaching World Falun Dafa Day and the birthday of Dafa's founder, Master Li Hongzhi.
On May 6, 2107, Falun Dafa practitioners in Taoyuan City celebrated World Falun Dafa Day with group exercises and performances in Guangming Park. They also held a parade in the business district.
The afternoon performance began with the Tian Guo Marching band playing “Falun Dafa” and “Thank You Master”. Deputy Mayor You Jianhua, City Councilor Huang-Fu Shu-hsiang, and other government officials attended the celebration and gave speeches, expressing their support for Falun Dafa.
Following the performance, practitioners held a two-hour parade across the business district of Taoyuan. Many spectators took this opportunity to learn about Falun Dafa and express their support for practitioners' work against the ongoing persecution in mainland China.
More than 1,000 Falun Dafa practitioners in Taipei held a celebration in front of Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall on May 7, 2017. They took a group picture with a banner, wishing Master Li a happy birthday, and thanked Master for spreading the principles of the universe – Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance – to millions of people around the world.
The large-scale group exercise created a magnificent scene. A photo exhibit along one side of the square told about Falun Dafa's wide spread to more than 100 countries around the world. Practitioners also taught the exercises for free and distributed paper lotuses and flyers introducing Falun Gong. Tourists from all over the world watched the celebration and took pictures. Many from mainland China took this opportunity to quit the Communist Party and affiliated organizations.
