After participating in the annual Parventa Festival parade in Ventspils, Latvia, the Falun Dafa group held a lotus flower making workshop and demonstrated the exercises. They told people about this ancient mind/body cultivation practice and taught the exercise movements to those who were interested. They also informed them about the persecution of the practice in China.
Falun Gong practitioners in Denmark held a workshop at the Aalborg Community Center, where they taught the Falun Gong exercises, introduced the benefits of this ancient spiritual discipline from China, and raised awareness about the ongoing persecution of the practice in China.
Thirty speakers shared their understandings on cultivation with fellow practitioners from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Japan, and China. Several mentioned the importance of reading the experience sharing articles published on the Minghui website and told how those articles had helped them to better understand their own issues and to improve.
Falun Gong events in Poland, the Netherlands, and Russia further awareness about Falun Gong and the persecution in China.
The practitioners' attorneys pleaded not guilty on their behalf and defended them based on existing Chinese law, which guarantees freedom of belief.
"I am a sixty-year-old with no health problems at all – instead, thanks to Falun Dafa, I have been enjoying a healthy and fulfilling life."
