(Clearwisdom.net)On January 30, 2007, some Falun Gong practitioners held a series of activities in Lerum City, a small town in Sweden to mark the fourth anniversary of Falun Dafa Day. Mr. Bengt Hrnlund, member of Peoples Health Committee of Lerum City Government and chairman of the citys Youth Activity Committee, proclaimed on behalf of Lerum City on January 30, 2003 that January 30th every year to be Falun Dafa Day.
Demonstrate five sets of Falun Gong exercises
Children especially like paper lotus flowers
On the same day of the proclamation, Mr. Hrnlund praised Falun Gong practitioners and expressed his support for Falun Gong practitioners who are suffering persecution in China. Lerum City also issued a statement the same day.
Since Falun Dafa was introduced to Lerum City in 1999, new practitioners can learn the Falun Gong exercises at practice sites. Falun Gong has obtained many support and praise in Lerum City, and many people have witnessed its positive effect on peoples physical and mental wellbeing.
At this years Falun Dafa Day, it was colder than previous years, and also snowed. Practitioners demonstrated the five sets of exercises and distributed flyers and handmade paper lotus flowers. Children particularly liked paper lotus flowers.
Though it was very cold, many people took flyers. One lady walked to the practitioners and said it was coincident and amusing to meet with Falun Gong practitioners, because earlier that day, her colleagues and she had searched information about Falun Gong on the internet to find a practice site to learn Falun Gong. She left happily after the practitioners told her the nearest practice site.
