(Clearwisdom.net) On July 20, 2010, practitioners from Munich and surrounding areas held activities in front of the Chinese Consulate to call for an end to the 11-year long persecution of Falun Gong. Passersby were stunned to learn about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and agreed that it must be stopped. Some asked for information on practice sites and wanted to learn Falun Gong.
Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a traditional Chinese spiritual discipline for mind and body. The practice involves slow, gentle movements and meditation. It is easy to learn, enjoyable to practice, and free of charge. Its principles are based on Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The practice began in China in 1992 and quickly spread by word of mouth throughout China and then beyond. Its beneficial effects in uplifting an individual's physical, mental, and spiritual health, not to mention its positive influence in the community and society as a whole, have been undeniable. In fact, Falun Gong has been practiced by over 100 million people in 100 countries. The main works of Falun Gong are available in over 30 languages.
On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched a brutal persecution of Falun Gong. Since the start of the persecution, Falun Gong practitioners throughout the world have been constantly speaking out about the truth of Falun Gong and exposing the CCP's crimes in a tireless effort to end the persecution.
