On the 22nd and 23rd of November, David Bowie, a famous musician held a two day concert in Dublin, the capital of Ireland. Sterling Campbell is a member of David Bowie’s band and also a Falun Gong practitioner. Because of this, Irish practitioners together with the Irish Friends of Falun Gong obtained a precious chance to clarify the facts of the persecution of Falun Gong at the concert.
Practitioners arrived three hours before the concert was to begin in order to decorate the entrance area and to prepare everything. All those at the Friends of Falun Gong stand wore a white T-shirt with the words ‘Friends of Falun Gong’ imprinted on them. The practitioners’ manner and politeness drew many people over to the table. Truth-clarifying materials were distributed and signatures collected for the release of Ireland-based practitioners Liu Feng and Yang Fang, who went back to China to appeal for Falun Gong but were illegally arrested and detained. They have not been allowed to return to Ireland and continue their studies.
Concertgoers were very interested to learn more about Dafa when they found out that a member of the band is a Falun Gong practitioner. Many of them expressed deep sympathy and irritation over the inhuman persecution against Falun Gong in China. Lots of people asked for leaflets to learn more and gave encouraging remarks to practitioners to show their concern, including ‘good luck’, ‘freedom’, ‘stop the persecution’ and ‘best wishes’. The two day concert allowed more people to learn about the persecution of Falun Gong.
