Nearly 1,000 Falun Dafa practitioners gathered at Liberty Square in Taipei last weekend in celebration of the upcoming Chinese New Year. Festivities included performances by the group's Tian Guo Marching Band, choral performances, Falun Dafa exercises, and group photos to send holiday greetings to Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa.
Falun Gong practitioners from Athens Greece were recently invited to hold a workshop on Zakynthos Island to introduce the ancient Chinese self-improvement cultivation practice to the public. Forty-six local citizens from the famous tourist town learned the exercises at the workshop. A few of the participants who had joined previous workshops said, “We feel great every time you guys come. And every time, the feeling gets better.”
During the last week of January, the five touring companies of Shen Yun Performing Arts brought live performances of divinely-inspired culture to theaters across the United States, Canada, and Australia. A dance studio owner who saw the show in Perth, Australia said the choreography was “fabulous,” adding, “I like all the spectacular jumping and leaping—the spectacle of it.”
At the trial, the police named the couple's four-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son, who has cerebral palsy, as witnesses.
When Mr. Liu's family visited him in the hospital two weeks ago, he was emaciated and barely able to raise his head. He was also unable to keep down anything he ate.
A Falun Dafa practitioner is disqualified from the "extraordinary teacher" award due to the persecution, but her colleagues, supervisors, and the parents recognize her outstanding work and kindness.
