Clarifying the Truth at the Asian Culture Festival in Westchester County, NY
(Clearwisdom.net) On May 28, 2005, practitioners participated in Westchester County's 7th Asian Culture Festival.
Under the banner "Falun Dafa is Wonderful," our booth attracted a lot of visitors. Some practitioners taught small children how to fold paper lotus flowers, some taught the exercises and some gave out materials clarifying the truth about Falun Gong, and some patiently talked to tourists.
Several of the tourists were couples that had adopted a child from China, or Westerners who have a strong interest in Asian cultures. The lotus booth attracted the interest of kids and adults alike. People crowded around the table we had set up for folding lotus flowers from the opening in the morning until the end of the festival.
The appeal to rescue Falun Gong orphans attracted the interest of many people. They came and asked about the persecuted practitioners and the orphans, and said that they will come to the musical concert in New York to help rescue the orphans. Many visitors looked at the materials and photos in the booth, and signed their names on the "rescue Charles Lee" postcards.
Many of the Chinese tourists were from mainland China. The majority of them listened carefully to the practitioners clarifying the truth on how the CCP persecutes Falun Gong, and accepted the materials that we gave them. Some of them were very interested in the health benefits of Falun Gong.
