The annual Freshers’ Fair was held at Cambridge University on October the 7th and 8th. Falun Dafa Practitioners set up a photo exhibition at the entrance to the Fair, where they performed the five sets of Falun Dafa exercises, and distributed materials so that new students could learn more about the practice and the brutal persecution that is happening in China. During activities over the past few years, practitioners have distributed flyers to the doors of around 300,000 families in Cambridge. This time practitioners targeted the city’s new students because they would like to let everyone in Cambridge know the truth about Dafa.

The annual Freshers’ Fair in Cambridge University is always very popular. Each association and club tries to make itself known so that it can attract new members. A lot of stores in Cambridge City value this business opportunity and attract people’s attention by giving away free gifts. In addition to the new students, there are also many older Cambridge residents who join in the activity.

The weather was not stable on the morning of October the 7th. It rained at times and then became windy and sunny. When we set up the display boards and sat down to send forth righteous thoughts, it suddenly began to hail. The ground turned white and minutes after it became sunny again.

Many people could not help reading the three characters of “Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance” out loud after seeing the flyers. One practitioner handed a flyer to an elderly lady, who did not want to take it. After hearing that it was about Falun Gong, her eyes lit up and she said with a smile, “I’ve got two more of your signature collection forms. I belong to an organisation for animal protection. We once invited you to introduce Falun Gong to us. We support you all the way.”

The activity continued until the 8th of October. The following remark was heard a lot from people who were offered a flyer: “Thank you, I’ve have received one already.” After the two-day activity, practitioners handed out around 3,000 English flyers. More than one hundred Chinese VCDs were handed out in one day. A lot of Chinese people walked up to the display board voluntarily and they carefully read them and asked some questions. Practitioners deeply felt that it was necessary to send forth righteous thoughts continuously.
