The presentation started with an explanation of the history of Falun Gong detailing how Mr. Li Hongzhi held seminars in the main Chinese cities starting in 1992 and how in just seven years the practice attracted 100 million adherents. The presentation also discussed the awards and proclamations Falun Gong received from the Chinese government before the persecution and the physical and mental health practitioners enjoy from doing the exercises and following the principles of Falun Dafa.

The narration continued by discussing the persecution initiated by the former communist leader Jiang Zemin who, after finding out that there were twice as many Falun Gong practitioners as Communist Party members. He saw in the popularity of Falun Gong a threat to his power and launched a nationwide hate campaign against practitioners. This persecution has led to more than 3074 deaths and has been going on for more than eight years now.

Practitioners told the guests about the principles of Falun Gong – truthfulness, compassion, tolerance – and their experiences in practicing. After this they demonstrated the five sets of meditative exercises, while explaining the effect and specifics of each of the exercises.

Almost all the visitors in the exhibition asked where they could learn the exercises and how to obtain the books of Falun Gong. People expressed their admiration of Falun Gong and some promised to organise meetings with their friends to try together the Falun Gong exercises.
