Denmark: People Are Happy to See Falun Dafa at the Health Expo

The largest annual Health Expo in Denmark, "The 2010 Health Expo," was held at the Congress Centre in Denmark's third largest city Odense during the Chinese New year period between February 12 and 14. Falun Gong practitioners in Denmark have participated in the Expo for each of the last three years.

About a hundred groups participated in this year's Health Expo, displaying a wide range of health products and information. The exhibitors from all over Denmark and Europe included manufacturers and businesses of various fitness products, ethnic clothing, musical instruments as well as various fitness and spiritual groups.

Although the weather was very cold with heavy snow over Odense area, the three-day Expo still attracted large number of visitors from Odense and surrounding areas.

In the previous years, the Falun Dafa booth was manned only by local practitioners. Sometimes they had difficulty coping with large number of visitors. This year Falun Gong practitioners from other cities also came to help. They coordinated and the result was very good.

The Falun Dafa booth was located in the centre of the exhibition hall. At the centre top of the booth was the golden banner worded "Falun Dafa is good", in both Chinese and English. At the centre were photos of the Falun Gong founder Mr. Li Hongzhi teaching people Falun Gong in China and around the world. The side walls of the booth were lined with photos showing Falun Gong exercise movements, various awards to Falun Dafa from China and around the world, photos of Falun Dafa's spread across the world and displays exposing the Chinese Communist regime's brutal persecution of Falun Gong. On the table were the main teaching of Falun Gong, Zhuan Falun, in different languages, Falun Gong and leaflets in Danish introducing Falun Gong. The whole booth was decorated with beautiful small paper lotus flowers with bookmark worded "Falun Dafa is good".

Practitioners demonstrated the slow, gentle and beautiful exercise movements. They gave out leaflets with a brief introduction of Falun Gong. The booth attracted the attention of many visitors. Some visitors wanted to learn the Falun Gong exercises and asked about the exercise sites. People were also interested in learning the details about the Chinese Communist regime's persecution of Falun Gong. Some visitors even started to learn the exercises on the spot.

Falun Gong practitioner Karin attended all three-day's activity in the Expo introducing Falun Gong to visitors. She said: "This year the majority of visitors are open to Falun Gong. They have positive view about Falun Gong. Moreover the overwhelming majority have heard about the Chinese Communist regime's persecution of Falun Gong. They are willing to pause to listen to our explanations about Falun Gong's benefits to health and the fact about Falun Gong. After listening, they all think that Falun Gong is very good and are happy to take information home to learn more."

When Falun Gong practitioners described the persecution occurring in China, and when people learned that one practitioner on the spot personally suffered persecution in China and was illegally imprisoned in the labour camp, people thought it inconceivable. They asked: "You are so peaceful, why does the Chinese Communist regime want to persecute you?" Many people pondered after learning the fact. They wanted to learn more fact from Falun Dafa's websites.

One lady returned to the booth again on the second day and told practitioners: "Falun Dafa is truly good. Wonderful!" "After listening to your introduction, I went home. My whole body carried strong energy. As soon as I got into my home, my whole family felt the energy in my body. I felt great changes happening to me. It is really wonderful." She said that she wanted to learn Falun Gong for herself.
