United States: Introducing Falun Gong at a Chinese New Year Celebration in Massachusetts

Falun Gong practitioners in Boston participated in the twentieth Lunar New Year Festival celebration in Quincy, held at North Quincy High School on February 17th, 2008. The party was hosted by the Quincy Asian American Association. The practitioners spread the grace of Falun Dafa by teaching people to fold paper lotus flowers, distributing truth-clarification literature, and explaining the facts face to face.

It was different from the last few years in that Chinese people had a big change of attitude toward Falun Dafa this year. The practitioners who distributed truth-clarification literature said, "About 90 percent of the Chinese people accepted our literature. More Chinese people than ever before took the literature and VCDs of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Some said they would come to the local practice site. Some took the videocassette with Falun Gong exercise instructions. Several Chinese people from China said, "We did not know much about Falun Gong in recent years. But now we all know. Falun Gong is very good. The Communist Party persecutes Falun Gong practitioners. It is too inhumane.'"

Some Westerners had not heard of Falun Gong before. The practitioners explained what Falun Gong is, how it has spread all over the world, and about the brutal persecution occurring in China. When those listening learned that Human Rights Torch Relay would come to Boston, they said they would participate in the event.

One Western man said he saw the Chinese New Year Spectacular in Boston last year and thought it was wonderful. He downloaded the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and read it. He would like to know more about Falun Gong and wanted to learn it.
