Finland: “Keep Going”
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Finland did the exercises together in Hesperian puisto (Hesperia Park) in Helsinki on August 20, 2020. Near the park is a lake and the famous Finnish National Theater. The calm music and the gentle movements drew much attention from passersby.
A woman saw messages from practitioners on social media and came to learn the exercises. She said that she met up with Falun Dafa 10 years ago and learned the exercises. After learning about the event on social media she came to learn it again. Afterwards she said, “The exercises give me comfort and a sense of relaxation. I also felt strong energy.”
Antti was walking his dog. After he learned that it was a Falun Dafa event, he signed the petition. He told practitioners: “I have a friend who works in the department of foreign affairs. I plan to give him a call and talk about Falun Dafa.”
After practitioners clarified the truth, people agreed to support Falun Dafa’s peaceful effort to stop the persecution.
Outi went for a walk with her friends. She is an office clerk and had not heard about Falun Dafa. She was shocked to hear about the organ harvesting from living practitioners. She told the practitioners, “We must strengthen you, and you should keep going.”
A woman was running by. Upon seeing the exercise she stopped and asked, “What are you doing?” Practitioners told her what happened in China, but she had more questions: “What is Falun Dafa. Where does what you are telling me to happen, and why has the persecution happened?” After she heard about the persecution and associated atrocities she signed the petition to stop the persecution. She told the practitioners, “Keep going!”
