Argentina: Raising Awareness about Falun Gong in Chinatown at Chinese New Year
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Buenos Aires sent greetings to the practice's founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi, for Chinese New Year on January 26, 2020. As part of their event in Chinatown they told passersby about the ongoing brutal persecution of practitioners in China.
It was a lovely summer weekend and Chinatown was packed with visitors. The practitioners demonstrated the exercises, held posters and banners and gave out fliers with information about Falun Dafa and the persecution. Many people thanked practitioners for their efforts.
Falun Dafa practitioners in Buenos Aires, Argentina promote the practice in Chinatown on January 26, 2020, the second day of the Chinese New Year. They also told people about the 20-year-long persecution.
After a man read the information he loudly exclaimed, “There's nothing better than Falun Dafa!”
He explained that before he retired he frequently traveled to China. “Over 20 years ago I witnessed many practitioners being brutally beaten on Tiananmen Square. I'll never forget what I saw,” he said. The practitioners explained how practitioners in China were incarcerated and tortured for their belief.
After learning how the practitioners in China were relentlessly tortured, a woman called her two teenagers over to listen, “You need to hear this.” The children solemnly listened and said they were shocked to hear it. They planned to go online and find out more.
One woman said she often comes to Chinatown and sees practitioners doing the exercises. She said that she could feel their powerful energy. Especially when she saw children doing the exercises, it made her feel that everything was pure and clear.
A young woman said that she would pray for practitioners. She was shocked to learn the details of the persecution and hopes it ends immediately.
