Turkey: Letting Turkish Students Know about Falun Gong and the Persecution Taking Place in China

On May 6th, Cemgil Arslan, the headteacher of the Bilge Elit Dershanesi school in Mersin, invited two Falun Gong practitioners to hold a presentation about Falun Gong in the school. They introduced the practice and its principles of ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’ to the students and taught them the five Falun Gong exercises.

During the presentation, Falun Gong practitioners talked about the beauty of Falun Gong from their own experiences, the powerful effect of Falun Gong on curing disease and keeping fit, how the cultivation of Falun Gong can develop people’s moral standards and, finally, the Chinese Communist Party’s ruthless persecution of Falun Gong in China. All the students were deeply engaged by the presentation. As all the seats in the meeting hall were taken some students had to stand for two hours, but this did not bother them at all.

After the presentation, practitioners taught students the five sets of Falun Gong exercises on campus and distributed Falun Gong exercise instruction DVDs. As a request from students, they promised to practise the exercises with them once every week.

Since the beginning of this year, Turkish Falun Gong practitioners have held many events to promote Falun Gong in the cultural and educational field of Turkey. The event at Mersin Haci Bektas-i Veli on February 27th and the Falun Gong session at Mersin Denizcilik Meslek Yuksek Okullu on March 8th were welcomed by the participants. More people from the intellectual circle of Turkey began to know about Falun Gong and more people with predestined relationships began to practise.
