(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners were invited to participate in the Health and Holistic Exhibition in Eslöv, Sweden, on March 6. With the lifting of the pandemic restrictions, visitors flocked to the venue and many of them stopped by the Falun Dafa booth to learn about the peaceful practice.
The peaceful exercise music and soothing movements attracted many people who wanted to learn more. An endless stream of visitors learned about the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and watched practitioners demonstrate the five exercises. Many asked where they could learn the practice, and some remarked on how young and healthy the practitioners looked.
People were shocked when they were told about the ongoing persecution in China and the Chinese Communist Party’s state-sanctioned organ harvesting targeting Falun Dafa practitioners. Many signed the petition to end the persecution.
People accepted the origami lotus flowers with a bookmark that read, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Many said the message was full of hope for humankind.
In the afternoon, practitioners gave an introduction to the exercises and a free class on how to do them. Many people attended. After doing the exercises, some people said they felt strong energy and they were grateful for the opportunity to learn the Falun Dafa exercises.
The organizers of the exhibition thanked the practitioners after the event, saying that the practitioners were very generous in teaching the exercises at no cost and presenting origami lotus flowers to whoever stopped by their booth.
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 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, issued an order to ban the practice.
Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 22 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. More 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 the organ transplant industry.
