A multi-cultural week at the University of Manchester was held from the 9th to the 13th of February 2004. The Falun Gong Student Society was invited to participate on Tuesday, which was Asian Culture Day. Several practitioners demonstrated Falun Gong’s five sets of exercises on stage at an evening concert. At the same time, another practitioner gave an introduction of Falun Gong, including the characteristics of each set of exercises, Falun Gong’s popularity around the world and the persecution happening inside China. During the half-hour demonstration, many students were absorbed in watching the exercises; some of them even started learning in their seats by following practitioners’ movements.
As soon as the demonstration was finished, many students flocked to our stall and asked for Dafa materials or details of the free exercise practice site. After watching practitioners perform the peaceful exercises, many people just couldn’t believe or understand why China persists in persecuting Falun Gong. At the end of the concert, the organiser thanked us again for taking part and bringing such a beautiful exercise performance to all.
As the truth of Falun Gong has spread among the people and society, many famous universities in U.K have set up Falun Gong student societies. These Falun Gong societies aim to provide free teaching for people who are interested in learning the Falun Gong exercises or knowing more about the practice and its roots in traditional Chinese culture.
