Germany: “You have made the Hamburg Multicultural Festival more vibrant!”

With support from the Mayor and people from all walks of life, a Multicultural Festival was held in Hamburg on September 12th. A team of Falun Gong practitioners consisting of nine different nationalities gave speeches to the sponsors from the “World Union of Hamburg Culture”, and to the guests; they sent people best wishes and a message “Hoping that Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance would come earlier” on behalf of Chinese Falun Gong practitioners. They also wished everyone a wonderful future.

The climax of the Cultural Festival was a parade on September 13th. It was a sunny day and passers-by watched the parade with great interest. There were nearly thirty groups attending the parade. The Falun Gong part of the parade was led by a beautiful blue banner reading “The World needs Zhen-Shan-Ren”. Practitioners’ lotus dance and fan dance were dignified and elegant.

The parade and show

Upon realising that it was a Chinese parade, a woman could not help saying, “This Chinese dancing is so beautiful”. But no-one can forget the terrible persecution that is happening to practitioners in China.

Feedback from the audience


A passer-by said to one of the reporters, “There should be more activities like this. The world is becoming smaller and smaller. The ability to endure one another should become a priority so that people with different beliefs and cultures can peacefully coexist.”

The final stop was Hamburg University. The Falun Gong dancing impressed the committee of judges and was rewarded with second prize. One lady said to Falun Gong practitioners, “Thank you for the wonderful show that fully displays Chinese culture. Your attendance has made the Cultural Festival more vibrant!”
