On February 12th, 2011, over ten local Chinese organisations held a Chinese New Year celebration on the grounds of the University of California in Sacramento. Local practitioners were invited to the event as in previous years to promote Falun Dafa.
Many westerners who attended the event said they had heard about Falun Dafa and they wanted to learn more about it. They also expressed sympathy to the practitioners for the ongoing persecution in China. As for Chinese, almost everyone there has come to understand the truth about Falun Dafa. Many talked to the practitioners for a long time and some wanted to donate money in support.
Practitioners who have attended the event for several years remarked that more and more Chinese people are now willing to accept materials about Falun Dafa. They are friendly and sincere. Many of them want to learn the exercises.
A man from Shanghai said, “I know you (Falun Gong) and I also support you (Falun Gong).”
A father and son visited some church booths and later came to the Falun Dafa booth. He said, “You are promoting the genuine Chinese tradition. We all support you.”
A practitioner's friend and his wife came to the event. He asked about the local practice sites because he wanted to learn and experience it. His wife asked eagerly what the essence of Falun Dafa is. A practitioner told her to remember Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
When a Chinese lady who has been in America for three years learned that the so-called Tiananmen self-immolation incident was totally fabricated to frame Falun Gong, she was shocked and took many informational materials.
A girl who just came to America and is in 6th grade asked seriously why the Chinese Communist Party wanted to ban Falun Gong. A practitioner told her that only China bans Falun Gong; that Falun Gong is practiced in some one hundred countries in the world. With encouragement from her mother, the girl took many informational materials.
It seems that more Chinese people are awakening after learning the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution. The Chinese Communist Party's persecution is going nowhere.
