(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Indonesia came together in Batam on August 13 and 14 to show people how good Falun Dafa is and to inform them about the persecution in China.

Practitioners introduced Falun Dafa at the newly-opened One Batam Mall in Batam’s city center on Saturday, August 13, 2022. Many tourists had come to shop at the new mall.

Practitioners demonstrated the five exercises and their waist drum team played songs to spread the joy of Falun Dafa to the crowds. The waist drums’ unique sound attracted many people to the stage, and people found places to sit to watch and listen to the performance.

Practitioners distributed truth-clarification materials to the audience while the emcee told people about Falun Dafa and how it is being persecuted in China.
