On May 8, 2022 practitioners from Poland and Ukraine held activities in Poland’s capital, Warsaw, to celebrating the 30th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s public introduction and Master Li Hongzhi’s 71st birthday.
In the morning practitioners demonstrated the exercises in front of the Chinese embassy, and held a peaceful protest to expose the persecution of Falun Dafa in China.

In the afternoon practitioners came to the Historic Center of Warsaw. They demonstrated the exercises, and performed the dragon dance to celebrate the holiday. They also passed out flyers to tell the public about Falun Dafa, and collected signatures on a petition to end the persecution of Falun Dafa in China.
Tomek from Poland has practiced Falun Dafa for twenty-three years. Looking back on the journey he traveled, he sincerely thanked Master for his compassionate teachings and protection along the way, giving him the courage to raise a banner in China’s Tiananmen Square and say, “Falun Dafa is good”, and telling the Chinese there: “The whole world knows that Falun Dafa is good!” It also made him believe in the truth without fear of being persecuted by the Chinese police.

In the more than twenty years since he began practicing Falun Dafa, Tomek deeply felt that he benefited, both in terms of personal life and in his work.
He said, “The CCP’s persecution of Falun Dafa is wrong, and I am very willing to bring the beauty of Falun Dafa to more people, and let more people know about virtue and goodness and feel the beauty of Dafa.”
Before she began practicing Falun Dafa, Ms. Irena suffered from a variety of diseases. Her life and work were not smooth, and her marriage and financial situation were also in crisis. When her life seemed most hopeless, she learned about Falun Dafa, which completely changed her life.

She can speak multiple languages. She took advantage of this ability and told people about Falun Dafa in her job as a tour guide. She now enjoys good health, her work and life are full of energy. She is grateful to Master and Falun Dafa for renewing her life.
She is grateful for Master’s protection, and says she is even more fortunate to find the righteous teaching in this life and practice Falun Dafa. She wishes Master a happy birthday and good health.
Jas from Poland said, “Master said that cultivation is the most difficult thing in the world. Thank you Master for arranging a brand new life and putting my feet on the path of cultivation. Thank you Master for your infinite compassion and care, let me fulfill my oath on the road of cultivation.
Jas said, “Falun Dafa has spread around the world for thirty years, and it is also thirty years of redemption for the world. I wish Master a happy birthday! Falun Dafa is good! ”
Many residents and tourists stopped to watch the performances. They listened as practitioners explained what Falun Dafa really is and how brutal the persecution in China is.
People were shocked to learn the details of the persecution. Almost all of all those who talked to practitioners signed the petition to support practitioners’ efforts to end the persecution. Many of them videotaped the events, and said they would share them with their friends, letting more people know about the persecution.
Ms. Alicia was very touched and stopped to watch practitioners for a long time. She said, “You are spreading the truth here. You are touching people’s conscience, so that people do not fall into hatred. You are being persecuted like that, yet you are still teach people to remain kind and friendly. You have done a great job. I admire you, Falun Dafa is good!”
Some people were also interested in learning the exercises.
When Ms. Alina learned that Falun Dafa is guided by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and the practice of virtue and goodness, she felt that this was what she had been waiting for, for a long time, and today she finally found it.
She also wanted to learn the exercises and read the teachings. She said that forbearance was what she lacked, and it is also what many people need in life, so people's lives are not healthy now.
She hopes that everyone will come to learn Falun Dafa and learn Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, so that the world would have a way out of the current turmoil.
