On the weekend of September 14 to 16, Falun Dafa practitioners gathered in Barcelona to do the exercises together, study the Falun Dafa teachings, and hold activities to let people know about the human rights abuses happening in China.

The practitioners gathered on the evening of Friday and studied the Fa until 11 p.m. The next morning they sent forth righteous thoughts and then did the exercises. Except for meals, the practitioners studied the Fa all day long. Many sensed the strong energy field generated by the group Fa-study.
A practitioner shared that this kind of intense Fa-study is very effective. Many attachments that are hard to get rid of were abandoned after study and sharing. Another practitioner shared that the focused and intensive Fa-study served to illuminate many unnoticed attachments. When the practitioners found their own attachments, they vowed to be more diligent in their future cultivation. The attendees hope to have more such large scale Fa studies in the future.
On Sunday morning, the practitioners went to Barcelona's famous Arc de Triomf Park to do the exercises together. The activity drew many local residents as well as tourists who wanted to learn more about Falun Gong and asked questions about the persecution in China. Almost all of them signed the petition to support Falun Gong's efforts to end the persecution. Some of them stayed to learn the exercises.
A Chinese tourist—a young woman—was surprised to see so many people practising Falun Gong in a park in a foreign country. A practitioner gave her some CDs that explain the facts about Falun Gong and a DVD of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. When she learned that the Tiananmen Self-Immolation incident was a staged propaganda stunt to vilify Falun Gong, her eyes widened and she said, “Oh, so that's the truth.” She took the DVDs and promised to look at them.
