Falun Gong practitioners were invited to participate in the 110th anniversary parade of Meishan Primary School on March 31, 2017. The practitioners demonstrated the exercises and played waist drums in the parade, which took place in Meishan, Chiayi, Taiwan.
The practitioners’ waist drum team played during the parade. Along with melodious music, Falun Gong practitioners also demonstrated the exercises. Their performance drew the attention of spectators, shopkeepers, and shoppers along the parade route. Some practitioners distributed Minghui Weekly, a newspaper with Falun Gong information, which explains the beauty of Falun Gong and exposes the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) brutal persecution of the practice.
The parade passed by busy streets in Meishan Township, and practitioners introduced Falun Gong throughout the area.
Some people commented, “Falun Gong teaches people to be good, but it is persecuted. That is inconceivable.”
The practitioners introduced Falun Gong to the local people. They told people, “Falun Dafa is also known as Falun Gong. It was made public in 1992. It teaches people to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and improve morality. It has marvelous benefits in healing illnesses and keeping fit. Nearly 100 million people practiced Falun Gong before the persecution began in 1999. Many high level CCP officials practiced Falun Gong. It was then CCP head Jiang Zemin who initiated the persecution out of jealousy.”
Falun Gong was introduced to Taiwan in 1995. Currently several hundred thousand people in all walks of life practice Falun Gong in Taiwan.
Falun Gong practitioners arrived at the Township office, where township head Liu Hung-wen and secretary Lin Chun-mu were waiting on the square in front of the office. They praised the grace of Falun Gong and were pleased to have group photos taken with the practitioners. They appreciated the practitioners participation in the parade.
Meishan is a small village under Alishan. where there were plum blossoms seen during the winter. The practitioners hope that the local people learn about the beauty of Falun Dafa and raise their awareness of the CCP’s persecution.
