Stockholm, Sweden: Passersby Touched by Practitioners Raising Awareness About Persecution Despite Heavy Snow
(Minghui.org) It has been snowing non-stop for two days in Stockholm. Mynttorget, a public square near the Royal Palace is covered in snow. Despite the freezing temperatures, Falun Dafa practitioners continue to demonstrate the Dafa exercises and raise awareness about the persecution in China, just as they do during good weather.
Clarifying the Truth About Dafa
A striking banner with the words “Stop the persecution of Falun Dafa” was displayed along with information about the practice. A group of practitioners did the exercises to the peaceful exercise music while others handed out informational materials about Dafa to passersby.
A middle-aged couple stopped to watch the exercise demonstration and stayed for a long time after learning about the persecution. The man took a flier and said, “Nowadays people are caught up with pursuing all kinds of things. I find that very tiring. I can feel a strong energy field as I stand here, a sense of peace and serenity I have not experienced before. One should switch to a different way of living.” The couple expressed interest in taking up the practice.
A man who frequently travels between China and Sweden for work quietly listened to practitioners explain about the suppression taking place in China. He told the practitioners that he has no doubt that the Chinese communist regime is capable of committing such atrocities. He said that he felt regretful that such a terrible thing has been going on for so long, yet not a lot has been done internationally. He expressed his admiration for Falun Dafa practitioners' continued efforts in resisting the persecution.
A man from France said he felt terrible after learning that practitioners were tortured for their belief in China. He took a brochure, and said that he would read it carefully and think about what he could do to help stop the persecution.
John, a Western practitioner, said he was glad he came to Mynttorget, in spite of the cold weather, after seeing so many people learn about the persecution. He was especially touched by the encouragement received from those who understood the truth about the practice. He said that he would continue to raise awareness about the plight of Falun Dafa practitioners imprisoned in China until the day the persecution comes to an end.
