From the 1st to the 6th of September 2004, in the capital city of Russia, the Department of Education and the Department of News and Publication worked together to hold the 2004 World Book and News Media Exhibition. More than seventy countries participated in this exhibition. Originally, at the opening ceremony, it was decided that the President would cut the ribbon. However, due to the school hostage incident which happened at the time of the exhibition, The President cancelled his former plan; it was the Minister of Culture who cut the ribbon instead. During this exhibition, many people who are big names in Russian society and famous writers came to meet the readers. The International Human Rights Organisation also joined this exhibition for the first time.
Russian Falun Gong practitioners took part in this book exhibition as well. Their stall was on the second floor with a really eye-catching sign. At the stall, they showed Falun Dafa’s books in several languages and also honours that Falun Gong has been awarded from around the world. The main media and publishers in Russia also attended and they interviewed Falun Gong practitioners who participated in the exhibition.
