United Kingdom: Raising Awareness about Falun Gong and the Persecution During the Glasgow Art Festival

Glasgow Art Festival is held every year and on this occasion Falun Gong practitioners in Scotland took the opportunity to hold an activity to tell people what Falun Gong is and how the Chinese Communist Party cruelly persecutes kind Falun Gong practitioners in China.

Falun Gong practitioners demonstrate the Falun Gong exercises

At the beginning of the festival there were many visitors. Practitioners played a piece of music called “Pudu”. which attracted many people who came and took photos one after another. Gradually, as the Art Festival got lively, many people accepted leaflets. Some tourists told a practitioner, “This is what I was looking for and now I have found it.“ Many other people asked where they could find the exercise sites and indicated their eagerness to learn the exercises and the truth about Falun Gong.

A practitioner walked amongst the noisy crowds, talking to people. On hearing about the persecution of Falun Gong by the CCP, some passers-by would come over in a hurry and sign the petition supporting Falun Gong.

With the petition forms and leaflets, a practitioner went to all booths - nearly all booth owners signed the petition. Although one booth was very busy, on hearing the facts about Falun Gong, a lady who was the owner of the booth first signed the petition and then served customers.

Local practitioners in Glasgow had already talked to the Festival Organising Committee whose members all know the fact that how good Falun Gong is and how innocent Falun Gong practitioners are being persecuted by the CCP in China. Every year, they invited Falun Gong practitioners to demonstrate the exercises on the stage. This time was no exceptional as well. In yellow costumes, practitioners looked very nice. With a microphone, a practitioners was making an introduction from the principle of the exercises and how the evil CCP persecutes Falun Gong to the inside story of the CCP’s forced labour camps, the crime of removing organs from live Falun Gong practitioners for sale committed by the CCP, the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” which has lead to a spring tide of 38 million people having withdrawn from the CCP, etc.

Hundreds of onlookers were taking photos. After the demonstration, a lady asked: “What is Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance”? A practitioner explained to her by citing a paragraph from “Lunyu” in a book entitled “Zhuan Falun”. When hearing this, she said: “What it says is very true, I must learn it.”

During the festival, many Chinese passed by the Falun Gong booth. In order to clarify the truth, a Falun Gong practitioner had made a slogan reading: “We all have deeply regretted the loss of life in the Sichuan Earthquake in which tens of thousands of fellow people have met with misfortune. As a national crisis is imminent, why don’t you (the CCP) stop the persecution of millions of innocent people?” Falun Gong practitioners hoped that the Chinese people could gradually realise the nature of the evil CCP, break away from it and choose a good future for themselves.
