Cyprus: Introducing Falun Gong in Paphos
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in Cyprus held activities at Paphos Harbor on Sunday, July 8, 2018, to tell people about Falun Gong and the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of the practice over the past 19 years.
When the practitioners put up their banner at the harbor, a tour boat owner told them his boat was right next to them. The practitioners asked if their banner had blocked his business, and if it did, they would be happy to move. The boat owner was touched by their consideration and asked what they were here for. He listened to their explanation and spent time watching their exercise demonstrations.
Two police officers also stopped by and listened to the practitioners' introduction. They asked how to do the exercises and praised practitioners for their excellent work.
Many tourists watched the exercise demonstrations. Some took pictures and informational materials. Others signed a petition calling for justice for the practitioners facing persecution in China.
Three young women watched the exercise demonstration with great interest. They wanted to learn the exercises, so a practitioner taught them the movements. A father and son were also interested in Falun Gong. They took introductory materials and said they would learn more about it on the Internet.
