Gose, a tourist from Barcelona said that when looking at the Falun Gong practitioners’ exercise demonstration he was attracted by the practitioners’ energy field. He said, "While I was watching them I can feel the harmony and goodness. I can feel the powerful energy field".
Jim Hogan, an Irish educationalist and his Germany friend happened to pass by. They were deeply attracted by the exercise demonstration and the traditional dancing. He expressed that he really couldn’t understand why the evil CCP meant to persecute such a harmonious cultivation group. He said I felt the very peace and harmony and that is what attracted me here. I heard about Falun Gong before. My feeling was the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in mainland China is not understandable.
Irish Falun Gong practitioner Ms Dai Dongxue said “today is world Falun Dafa day and we celebrated here. All of us Falun Gong practitioners have one common wish and we tender our sincere thanks to Master Li Hongzhi. He transmitted Falun Gong and let so many beings have the opportunity to have themselves elevated and purified. There is no other system, discipline or practice can achieve this. Falun Gong practitioners are now in more than eighty countries in the world and number more than 100 million people. Every walk of people, no matter what nationality, what skin colour, of what age and what occupation they are, as long as they act according to the principle of Falun Gong, they all can achieve the elevation both in physically and mentally.
