Spain: Falun Gong Practitioners Invited to Participate in "European Cultural Exchange"

"European Cultural Exchange" activities held by the European Cultural Centre kicked off on July 5th on Canary Island, a famous coastal tourist attraction in Spain. Spanish Falun Gong practitioners were invited to participate in the activities.

The activities began at 10am. After the organiser introduced the groups from various countries to join in the activities, each group started their exhibition of cultural activities in diverse forms. Exhibited on the Falun Gong stand were Falun Gong books, leaflets on Falun Gong exercises, photos on worldwide popularity of Falun Gong, as well as photos and leaflets on the current persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist regime. Falun Gong practitioners also made speeches on what Falun Gong was and how people benefited from practicing Falun Gong; over 100 million people have restored physical health and elevated their morality through personal cultivation of Falun Gong since Falun Gong was introduced worldwide by its founder Mr. Li Hongzi in 1992. Meanwhile, the speakers described the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China.

After the speeches ended, Falun Gong practitioners demonstrated to those present the five sets of Falun Gong exercises.

The elegant exercises drew people’s attention. When being informed that such a good cultivation method is being subjected to persecution, people first felt confused. Then they condemned the CCP persecution, and expressed support for Falun Gong practitioner’s anti-persecution activities by signing the petition.

A couple riding on their bike stopped in front of the Falun Gong stand. On their way to the stand, they had been talking about something important missing in their life, besides their job and everyday pressure. They read the leaflets attentively. They were informed of Falun Gong, struck by a sudden thought. “This is what we have been searching for. Where do you teach people Falun Gong?” they asked eagerly. After the practitioners answered their questions, they said that they would temporarily throw off their negative thoughts of life and jobs, which had in turn worn them out. Then, they would link their inner world with the good and beauty of Falun Gong.

A lady was strolling with several children. After reading the leaflets, she explained to the children the persecution of Falun Gong in China. The kids paid attention to her explanation. The lady signed the petition in support of Falun Gong, and so did the children.

A young girl felt extremely shocked when informed of the brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. On the other hand, it was some consolation for her to see people stand up for the persecuted practitioners, enlist support of the international community and awaken human conscience. At last the young girl said. “I hope to do something to help end the persecution. I will tell all my colleagues and friends the horrible persecution in China and ask them to support Falun Gong and help bring an end to the CCP’s persecution. We hope the situation will turn good as soon as possible. We look forward to the coming of this day soon.”

After the activities came to and end, the organiser expressed thanks for the Falun Gong group’s participation and praised Falun Gong for adding novelty, uniqueness, peacefulness and harmony to the activities.
