On May 9th 2009, Falun Gong practitioners in Turkey held a series of activities in the embassy district of Ankara to introduce Falun Gong and to expose the decade-long brutal persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Gentle exercise music, graceful exercise demonstrations, and the practitioners' peacefulness drew the attention of many passersby. The display boards nearby introduced that Falun Dafa is a cultivation way originated from China, takes Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance as its principles, and has been spread to over one hundred countries and regions. However, in China, the CCP does not allow people to believe in Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearanceand launched a brutal persecution against Falun Gong practitioners. It has gone so far as harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners to make money. The CCP's atrocities have been exposed one after another and is condemned by the international community.
People quietly watched the exercise demonstration, read truth clarification display boards, asked for leaflets, inquired about practice sites, and learned more facts from practitioners. Some also learned to fold paper lotus flowers.
