(Minghui.org) Practitioners gathered at Asbury Park Beach in New Jersey on Saturday, September 18, 2021, to demonstrate the Falun Dafa exercises and expose the persecution in China. They set up poster boards along the boardwalk and distributed fliers to passersby.

After completing the five sets of Falun Dafa exercises on the beach, practitioners took a group picture and wished Master Li , the founder of Falun Dafa, a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival in a video recording.

Asbury Park Beach is a historic beach famous for its boardwalks and live music. It is a family-friendly beach during the day and has a vibrant music scene with live performances after dusk. 

The weather was bright and sunny during the activities and a lot of visitors were strolling around. Falun Dafa practitioners did the exercises on the beach not far from the ocean. Their yellow T-shirts stood out against the blue sky and light sand, and many tourists stopped to watch them.

Many people stopped to chat with practitioners and ask for more information about Falun Dafa. Upon hearing about the ongoing persecution and forced live organ harvesting of Falun Dafa practitioners in China, many people were sympathetic and shocked. Many people told practitioners that they supported the efforts to end the persecution and were grateful for the information.

A resident of New York, who came to the beach for some music performances, learned the exercises and joined practitioners during the exercise demonstration. When the Falun Dafa practitioners told him about a practice site near his home in New York, the man happily said that he will learn the practice when returns home.

A lady from India saw Falun Dafa practitioners demonstrating the exercises from afar. She was visiting the beach with her daughter and grandson on the day of the activities. As she came closer, she started to read the information on the poster boards. She told practitioners: “Your bright yellow shirts look very nice and you look very peaceful while meditating.” She wanted to learn the practice and a practitioner taught her the first exercise. The lady said that she will look for her local group practice site when she returns home.
