(Minghui.org) The Falun Dafa booth was one of the more popular attractions at the Amsterdam Avenue Fair in New York City on August 12, 2017.

The fair featured nearly 200 booths along Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan's Upper West Side.

Falun Dafa booth volunteers talked with visitors about Falun Dafa's notable effects in improving physical health and spiritual well-being and informed them about the brutal persecution this practice has faced in China, its country of origin, for the past 18 years.

Simmi, from another fair booth, visited the Falun Dafa booth several times.

Simmi Kaur Sharma was working at an Indian food booth opposite the Falun Dafa booth and visited the Falun Dafa booth several times.

She brought a friend with her on her second visit and returned again later asking for 20 flyers and origami lotus flowers for each of her family members.

Many people signed a petition at the booth condemning the persecution, in particular the Chinese regime's crime of killing imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners for their organs for sale to transplant patients.
