Turkey: Celebrating Falun Dafa Day and 25th Anniversary of Dafa's Public Introduction
(Minghui.org) Practitioners in Turkey organized a series of activities in Istanbul, on May 12-13, 2017.
Practitioners practiced the exercises in peaceful protest in front of the Chinese Consulate in Istanbul on Friday, May 12. They called attention to the regime's unjust persecution and crime of forced organ harvesting from imprisoned Falun Dafa practitioners in China.
On Saturday, May 13, in front of the Besiktas Democracy Memorial, practitioners demonstrated the exercises, distributed flyers, and collected signatures. Many tourists and locals stopped to learn more about the practice and the persecution in China.
A teacher who stopped at the event, Ms. Sevdiye Teker, was appalled by the atrocities. She said, “This is the first time I heard about this. It is a horror that is beyond words!”
A student, Mr. Han Caliskan, said he had received a Falun Dafa flyer a week before and had watched some videos online. He was glad to come across the exercise demonstration. “I can feel the intensity of the energy. I will come to your exercise site," he said.
