"I Need This": Introducing Falun Gong at a New York City Street Fair
(Minghui.org) Bryant Park Fair was held on the 41st Street in Manhattan, New York on July 1, 2017.
Located near Times Square and the New York Public Library, the fair was packed with tourists from around the world, as well as city residents. There were more than 80 booths, including the Falun Gong booth, which featured demonstrations of the peaceful exercises.
Several booth visitors commented, “Meditation...this is what I need.” Some asked about the cost of learning Falun Gong and were delighted to find that it is available to learn for free online, as well as in parks and libraries where volunteers host practice sites and hold free workshops.
Some of the visitors expressed outraged when they learned how this peaceful practice is being persecuted in China. Many of them signed a petition to condemn the Chinese Communist regime's state-sanctioned organ harvesting from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners.
