Brazil: Introducing Falun Gong and Raising Awareness of the Persecution at a Fitness Expo
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, were invited to participate in the 2018 World Fitness Expo, where they introduced Falun Gong to the participants. They also raised awareness of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong in China.
During the three-day expo, the practitioners introduced the unique features of Falun Gong in health improvement and uplifting morality, and discussed the persecution that is occurring in China. Many people said that this was what they had always wanted to learn, and they opposed the CCP's cruel persecution. Many learned the exercises on the spot.
When Luiz, a healthcare product distributor, couldn't rotate his left shoulder freely. After practicing one or two sets of the exercises, his left shoulder could move freely. He was pleased, and said that he would go to the park to continue practicing Falun Gong in the future.
Gabriel, a special mattress dealer, heard about the free Falun Gong instruction in the broadcast. He set aside his business work and went to the venue to learn Falun Gong. After practicing, he said that he was much more relaxed. He said, smiling, that he would go to the park to join the group practice on the weekend.
Elisabete and Isabela, who came from 25 miles away, loved the exercises. They want to learn more about Falun Gong by browsing the Internet. They said they would come to Brasilia to join the group practice with other practitioners.
The teachers and students from Faciplac University's nutrition major had a booth at the expo. After seeing the introduction of Falun Dafa, they participated in learning the exercises. They said they liked it and were happy they learned it.
Students Paula, Thais, Anna, and Clarina asked a lot questions about China. They couldn't understand why there was no freedom of belief in China. They were shocked and resolutely opposed to the CCP's live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners.
A tall young man named Rodrigo was attracted by the gentle practice music. He went straight to the instruction place to learn the exercises. After practicing, he asked a practitioner many questions.
The practitioner recommended that he go online to read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong, through which he would get answers to all of his questions. He happily thanked everyone and said that he would see them at the park on the weekend.
On the afternoon and evening of July 20, the practitioners came to the bustling commercial center to raise awareness and collect signatures. Many people used mobile phones to take photos of the exhibition posters, and signed the petition.
After viewing the posters, Luciana walked to the side of a practitioner and said, “All evil will be cleared, and a beautiful world will come!” She signed the petition with tears in her eyes.
Saulo Patrick, a young man studying at the University of Police, read the posters and talked at length with the practitioners. He had a deep understanding of what was good and what is true evil. He indicated that he would treat those making mistakes with kind thoughts in his future work, but punish the truly wicked.
