Media Reports on "UK Falun Dafa Day" Celebrations

On the 23rd of August, UK Falun Gong practitioners celebrated the first “UK Falun Dafa Day” with exercise demonstrations and art performances at Chamberlain Square near the Town Hall in Birmingham. Not only did the performances attract lots of people, but they also received attention from the local media. “The Birmingham Post” used a picture of a meditating Falun Gong practitioner and of dancing performances by Falun Gong practitioners. The Birmingham Evening Mail’s coverage was equally generous with photos and accounts of the benefits many of the practitioners had obtained through practising Falun Gong. The original texts are below:
