Norway: Practitioners Celebrate World Falun Dafa Day and Wish Master a Happy Birthday
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners from Norway gathered at the capital city of Oslo on May 4, 2019 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of World Falun Dafa Day. May 13 is also the birthday of Falun Dafa's founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi. Practitioners took the opportunity to wish Master Li a Happy Birthday and express their gratitude.
Raising Awareness about the Persecution
Even though few Falun Dafa practitioners live in Norway, everyone participates in activities to inform the public about the persecution in China. Every Saturday practitioners in Oslo put up a display in front of the Parliament building and collect signatures to stop the persecution. Every Sunday afternoon they do the exercises in Palace Park and teach newcomers the exercises. On important dates, practitioners hold activities outside the Chinese embassy.
Locals Show Their Support
When Anna noticed practitioners quietly meditating outside the Chinese embassy, she was struck by how peaceful and dignified they were. She said that this was a stark contrast to other protests, where people shout slogans and are often agitated. Curious, she stopped and asked many questions about Falun Dafa. After learning about the persecution, she signed the petition and said that she was interested in learning how to practice.
