Taking a break from their high-powered jobs in the D.C. area, theatergoers came away with more than just an evening's entertainment: “There is a purpose that’s even bigger than just beauty and marvelous dancing on the stage, even as lovely and as gracious and as elegant and charming as that can be.” “It makes you want to be a better person, to see how can I make myself better," another audience member reflected.
Practitioners gathered in front of New York City’s Chinese Consulate to solemnly remember fellow practitioners who died during the ongoing persecution of Falun Gong in China. The practitioners held a candlelight vigil on the evening of April 20, 2019 to remind the world how ten thousand practitioners went to Beijing to peacefully ask the government to allow them their basic right of belief.
Falun Gong practitioners held a series of activities last weekend to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the April 25, 1999 peaceful appeal of over 10,000 practitioners in Beijing. The events were held in downtown London, London's Chinatown, the Chinese Embassy, and the British Museum.
Much of the candlelight vigil was planned by young practitioners, some of whom were born after the historic event on April 25, 1999.
