Sweden: Falun Gong Practitioners Invited to the Stockholm Harmony Health Expo (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners were invited to take part in the "Harmony Health Expo" in Liljeholmen, Stockholm, Sweden, held on the 1st and 2nd of November. At the expo, practitioners provided a history of Falun Gong's development since its introduction in 1992 and exposed the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) brutal nine-year persecution of the practice. This year, practitioners also promoted the Divine Performing Arts Spectacular.

Many people stopped to look at the practitioners' exercise demonstration, to view an introduction to the Divine Performing Arts Spectacular, and to talk with practitioners. Many took leaflets after learning about Falun Gong and the persecution taking place in China.
A woman from Uppsala recently received a copy of the introductory book, Falun Gong from a friend. She was very interested in this exercise method and had started to learn the exercises from the descriptions in the book. She was very happy to see Falun Gong at the health expo, and with the help of practitioners, she located a Falun Gong practitioner from the Uppsala region.A teacher from Stockholm and her husband had learned about Falun Gong and were very interested in the practice. They inquired about the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the CCP, and were shocked upon learning of the brutality of the situation. The teacher exclaimed, "That's just too evil! It is simply unimaginable. For such a good exercise method to be persecuted, they (the CCP) must have a problem with their minds. We must certainly practice this way of cultivation." The couple then requested a copy of Falun Dafa's main text, Zhuan Falun, and said they would read this book carefully after going home. They left their telephone number and email address and said when leaving, "When the Divine Performing Arts group comes to Sweden next year, by all means let us know."
The practitioner who was responsible for coordinating with the Health Expo
received a phone call from the host before the end of the exhibition. The host
invited Falun Gong practitioners to take part in the forthcoming Harmony Health
Expo next spring. It is clear that Swedish people truly appreciate this ancient
Chinese traditional cultivation way.
