On Sunday the 18th of January 2004, Falun Gong practitioners held a display of the 5 sets of Falun Gong exercises outside Hove Town Hall in East Sussex. There was a beautiful banner with the words “Falun Dafa is Good” in gold lettering, which caught the sun as it streamed down. A local newspaper came along and took photographs of the practitioners practising the exercises. Practitioners told them about Falun Gong and the brutal persecution against Falun Gong in China.
The local Chinese Association was hosting an Educational and Cultural event at Hove Town Hall. This was part of the celebrations for the Chinese New Year and many Chinese people were there to help set up the event for many local Chinese people and businesses who were invited. All received flyers, Video-CDs and newsletters and some students sat by the practitioners who were meditating to have their pictures taken by their friends.
Many members of the Chinese community are now much more aware of the peaceful and compassionate nature of Falun Gong and accept it as part of the UK community. One of the Cultural event staff came and told us that he had practised Falun Gong in China before arriving in the UK and had the Chinese version of Zhuan Falun. The event finished with many Chinese people taking home CDs of beautiful music performed by Falun Gong practitioners.
