(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in San Jose and the south bay area held group exercises and van tours in April and May this year to promote Falun Gong and help people learn more about the persecution in China.

Many people were outdoors enjoying the weather, which is some of the nicest in California. Practitioners hoped their activities would send clear messages  that “Falun Dafa is great,” “Stop the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from harvesting organs,” “Stop CCP’s persecution,” and “End the CCP.”

Practitioners held group exercises regularly in Campbell Park and Emma Prusch Farm Park and fascinated many people. Some stopped to watch the activities and introductory videos, and others learned the exercises on the spot. Practitioners distributed flyers about the benefits of Falun Gong and about the CCP’s persecution in China.
