(Minghui.org) Practitioners held activities in front of the library at Queen Mary University of London on November 13, 2022. Many university students were interested in learning about Falun Dafa. Some joined them and learned to do the exercises.
Manni Yebonh, a student at Queen Mary University, and his friend stopped and watched practitioners for a long time. He noticed how peaceful they looked and asked, “Where can I learn to practice this? How much does it cost?” A practitioner handed him a flyer with information about Falun Dafa and explained that the practice was free of charge and that he could learn the exercises right away. Manni took off his jacket and did all four of the standing exercises. He said he entered a state of tranquility and his mind calmed down. He felt as if he were standing in an energy field surrounded by the wonderful exercise music.
Dilna Yanil, a student from Germany, took out her cell phone and looked up the Falun Dafa website as soon as she got a truth-clarification flyer. She was surprised to find out that Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa, had been translated into more than 40 languages, including German.
Dilna admired the graceful exercise movements and asked if she could join in. She said, “I could feel a great energy field when I did the exercises with the other practitioners. I felt very comfortable.” She thanked practitioners for being there and telling people about the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Many students and faculty members said the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of practitioners should stop. They supported practitioners by signing the petition to help end the persecution and condemned CCP’s forced live organ harvesting.
A security guard told practitioners that she knew the CCP persecuted Christians and other people who had religious beliefs. She said, “I believe that the CCP is capable of doing something like forced live organ harvesting.” She asked for several truth-clarification flyers and said she would tell her friends and family about Falun Dafa. She also said she would sign the petition online.
A faculty member at the university library noticed the activity, stepped outside, and asked for information about Falun Dafa.
Yao Vntur asked where she could learn the exercises after she was given an informational flyer. Practitioners invited her to attend a group practice site in Victoria Park. She said, “I would feel honored to be able to learn an ancient and spiritual practice.”
Learning about how practitioners in China are being persecuted by the CCP for believing in the principles Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, she said, “This is a civilized 21st century. How can one be persecuted and lose their lives for doing exercises? This is terrible! Everyone should help by speaking out. More people should learn about this and help stop this tragedy from happening.”
Background: What Is Falun Dafa and Why Is the CCP Persecuting It?
Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) was first introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in Changchun, China, in 1992. The spiritual discipline is now practiced in over 100 countries and regions worldwide. Millions of people who have embraced the teachings, which are based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and have learned the five exercises have experienced improved health and well-being.
Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), perceived the spiritual discipline’s growing popularity as a threat to the CCP’s atheistic ideology, and on July 20, 1999, he issued an order to eradicate the practice.
Under Jiang’s personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organization with the power to override the police and judicial systems and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Dafa.
Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 23 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. Countless practitioners have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.
There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply China’s organ transplant industry.
