(Minghui.org) Practitioners held activities near Lapangan Niti Mandala in Renon, Bali, on Sunday, November 27, 2022, to celebrate Car-Free Day and tell people about Falun Dafa. The park was filled with people, and many stopped to talk with the practitioners, who demonstrated the five peaceful exercises and played the Chinese waist drums. Many visitors were drawn to their performances and learned about Falun Dafa and the ongoing persecution in China.
Practitioners told people about the brutal persecution of Falun Dafa that started in July 1999, in China. They called for the Chinese regime to immediately end the persecution. Many who learned the facts signed the petition to protest the persecution and condemn the CCP’s crimes against humanity.
After a practitioner told Al about the persecution and explained what Falun Dafa is, he said that he wanted to learn the practice.
That afternoon practitioners read the teachings. They also talked about their experiences and how they followed the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance in their daily lives. Narwi said that after he began practicing, he became more focused, and felt great after doing the exercises.
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 have learned the five exercises have experienced improved 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, he issued an order to eradicate the practice.
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.
Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 23 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. Countless practitioners 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 China’s organ transplant industry.
