Introducing Falun Gong to visitors

Falun Gong practitioners were invited to demonstrate the exercises at the festival and to display information about Falun Dafa. The peaceful demonstration attracted waves of visitors.

One woman told a practitioner that she knew that Falun Gong was good and that people would learn the truth gradually.

A young boy listened to the introduction carefully, and finally said that he wanted to learn the exercises. When he told the practitioner his home address to contact him later, they found out that they lived very close to each other.

People signed their names on the petition to end the persecution

After seeing the truth-clarification posters, many people were very angry to see such a cruel persecution going on in China. They said that they believed that such an atrocity could happen in China, and added that the Chinese Communist Party has such a bad human rights record that it doesn't deserve to host the 2008 Olympics. One young man saw the pictures and said, "How can the communist party treat people like this! It is so evil." The people who learned the truth eagerly signed their names on the petition to support Falun Gong and to call for an end to the persecution.
