For eight weeks, students and teachers benefited from an environment in which everyone looked inward for opportunities to improve their character and learned to let go of selfish mentalities. In addition to studying Falun Dafa and doing the exercises, students attended classes on traditional Chinese dance, art, calligraphy, painting, and crafts.
Falun Dafa practitioners held an event at the Brandenburg Gate to raise awareness of the ongoing persecution in China. Passersby were moved by the peaceful exercises and shocked to learn about the Chinese Communist Party's state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting and readily signed the petition to end it.
“This persecution is intolerable and underhanded. We must censure this loudly and start doing something,” commented one passerby. Another noted, “People shut their eyes and hope to live comfortably in their own small circle. We are all in this together. We should look around—people should try their best to lend a helping hand. Even if it is a small act, a tiny step can bring huge results.”
With the easing of coronavirus restrictions, Falun Gong practitioners returned to Trafalgar Square to raise awareness of the persecution of their faith in China.
