Finland: Practitioners Introduce Falun Gong in Local Communities

Falun Gong practitioners in Finland recently conducted activities to introduce Falun Gong in a park and local community event in Helsinki. They talked to people about Falun Gong and exposed the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) thirteen-year persecution of the practice in China.

Practitioners often go to a seaside park to introduce Falun Gong. On August 11, 2012, even before they set up the banners and posters, several visitors came over to sign a petition to support Falun Gong. Many passers-by and tourists paused to watch the Falun Gong exercise demonstration and to read posters introducing the practice and exposing the CCP’s persecution.

Some Chinese tourists passing by paused to read the posters and listen to a practitioner’s introduction of the practice. When the practitioner offered them informational materials and CDs, many of the Chinese visitors accepted. Several said that they would read the materials carefully. Some said that they could not see such information in China. Many signed the petition to support Falun Gong.

On August 19, Falun Gong practitioners participated in a community event in Malmikartanon. They demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises. Many people passing by the Falun Gong stand took informational materials.

A child stood for quite a while in front of the Falun Gong stand. A practitioner asked her, “Would you like to learn Falun Gong?” She nodded gladly. When she saw her friend watching her, the young girl said, “Come join us.”

The second set of exercises requires one to stay in one position for several minutes. The children followed the practitioner and learned each hand gesture carefully. Later, more children joined them. They corrected each other’s hand gestures.

At the end of the exercises, a child asked, “When will you come again?” Her mother asked her daughter, “How did you like learning the exercises?” She answered, “I like it very much. I’ll come back next time.” Another child wanted to know the time and place where Falun Gong is practised in her area. Her mother asked the practitioners for more details.

A practitioner asked a child, “Will you remember Truth-Compassion-Forbearance?” She nodded gladly, “I'll remember!”
