Recently, Falun Gong practitioners from Missouri have held a series of activities on the campus of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) to introduce Falun Gong and expose the persecution to students and faculty.
|Demonstrating the exercises in the student union||Signing their names to support Falun Gong|
|Clarifying the truth to students||Learning the Falun Gong exercises|
SIUE is about 25 miles from St. Louis and has an enrollment of about 13,000 students. Falun Gong practitioners often come here to promote the Fa and clarify the truth. On April 14th, many students learned about the persecution. Some of them signed their names to support Falun Gong, including some who asked their friends to do the same.
One girl said that she will go to China this summer. A practitioner gave her a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, hoping that she would have a good understanding of the nature of the Chinese Communist Party before her trip.
Many students and faculty have heard about the persecution of Falun Gong, and some of them wanted to learn the exercises. They asked for contact information for the exercise site. One girl learned the exercises during the visit and said that she felt energy going through her body.
The person who is in charge of the Kimmel Student Leadership Center has been supporting the practitioners' activities for several years. On April 14th, she came to express her appreciation. At the end of the activity, she told practitioners that they should express their voice on a wall in the student union, where a sign says: "Raise Your Voice on the Wall". Practitioners then put up a sign there that said, "Falun Dafa is Good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good."
