From May 20-27, 2006, the International “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance”
Fine Arts Exhibition was held in the City Town Hall of Perth City, Western Australia.
During the exhibition, almost every visitor signed his name to support Falun Gong.
Visitors supported practitioners' anti-persecution actions and they all said
that the persecution is an unacceptable nightmare of human rights. Many visitors
learned the exercises at the exhibition hall. They said that they felt the beauty
of the art works and the miracle of cultivating Falun Dafa.
Senator Ruth Webber condemned the CCP's brutality at the opening of the exhibition
Town Hall of Perth is in downtown Perth, is 150 years old, and is one of the landmarks
in Perth. There were forty works of art at the exhibition, which were painted
by fifteen artists, who are all Falun Gong practitioners. The artworks were all
Western paintings. The exhibition consists of four sections: “The Beauty of Cultivation,”
“Uncompromising Courage,” “Calling for Justice,” and “Justice Prevails.” The exhibition
displays the spread and the persecution of Falun Dafa, and the uncompromising
spirit of the many Dafa practitioners who clarify
the truth, exposing the brutal persecution of Dafa.
Ruth Webber said, “These works have high art values, but what people should pay
more attention to is the real human rights violations in China, which are displayed
by those art works.”
from China, told visitors that she and many Falun Gong practitioners in China
have been illegally arrested many times for practicing Falun Gong. In 2000, she
was illegally sentenced to two years in a forced labor camp, and was jailed with

Falun Gong practitioner Yam, who just arrived in Australia
On the last day of the exhibition, a young Chinese mother came with a six or seven
year-old child. When the young mom talked to practitioners after seeing all the
art works, the child was standing in front of the paintings. Finally, the child
came to the mother, and practitioners found that the child was crying. The art
works not only shocked the adults and made them think, but also opened the enlightened
side of the children.
The art exhibition will tour in Western Australia, and
will be held in Albany next month. The art exhibition and the spirit of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance”
will spread to every corner of Western Australia.
