Indonesia: Exercise Demonstration and Music Performances Raise Awareness about Falun Dafa


( Denpasar is the largest city in the Indonesian province of Bali. On Sunday afternoon, March 27, 2022, members of the waist drum team held an event to tell people about Falun Dafa and how it is persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in China. They also demonstrated the exercises before performing several songs.

Many tourists stopped to watch the practitioners’ performance and took photos. Some who were curious to know more about Falun Dafa talked with the practitioners who were handing out flyers.

Practitioners told people about the Communist regime’s inhumane suppression of the practice and collected signatures on a petition to end the atrocities.

One woman said she had never heard of the persecution before. When she learned the extent of the brutalities, she gladly supported practitioners in peacefully resisting the suppression and to call for an end to the severe crimes against humanity.


Many people signed the petition to call for an end to the CCP’s persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners.


Background: What is Falun Dafa and Why is the CCP Persecuting It?

Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) was first introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in Changchun, China in 1992. The spiritual discipline is now practiced in over 100 countries and regions worldwide.

Millions of people who have embraced the teachings, which are based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and learned the five gentle exercises, have experienced uplifted health and well-being.

Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), perceived the spiritual discipline’s growing popularity as a threat to the CCP’s atheistic ideology and on July 20, 1999, issued an order to ban the practice. has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 22 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. More have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.

There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply the organ transplant industry.

Under Jiang’s personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organisation with the power to override the police and judicial systems and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Dafa.
