May 13 marks World Falun Dafa Day each year, and this year was the 23rd anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the public. European Falun Dafa practitioners joined those from other continents to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day in 2015.
Practitioners in Milan, Italy, demonstrated the exercises, handed out leaflets detailing the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China, and collected signatures calling for an end to the persecution.
At their May 10th celebration, several practitioners shared their personal stories of how they follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in their daily lives and how they have benefited from practising Falun Dafa.
Shaw started practising in England. Three months later, the skin disease that had bothered him for many years was healed. Shaw's mother witnessed his recovery, started to cultivate, and her bronchitis was cured. They both expressed their appreciation to Master Li.

David read the book Zhuan Falun last June. Impressed by the principles, he decided to cultivate.
“It answers many of my questions about life and the universe,” David said. “I always feel full of energy after doing the exercises.”
“More importantly, I started to look inward for my own shortcomings when I have conflicts,” he said. “I also quit smoking and drinking. I found it easy to quit after reading Zhuan Falun. I am calmer now, more at peace, because I have found the truth. I feel that Master Li is with me.
“I am happy to be a Dafa practitioner. Thank you, Master.”
Many people signed the petition, supporting practitioners' peaceful resistance against the persecution. Practitioner Xiaoxia also helped several Chinese tourists to quit the communist party.
“I wish that everybody in the world could learn about Falun Dafa on Falun Dafa Day,” Xiaoxia said, “especially the Chinese people, who have been deceived by the Party. I hope that they recognize the beauty of Falun Dafa.”
