Petals of Peace at Viva La Gong(Photos)
Wollongong Viva La Gong festival is a celebration of the world of arts, culture
and innovation. It is the highlight of Wollongong's cultural calendar coinciding
with the Rugby World Cup 2003 matches on 29 and 31 October. Local western Falun
Dafa practitioners realised this is great opportunity to clarify the truth to
the world's people and immediately applied for the event.
This year, the practitioners decided to take the "Petals of Peace Initiative"
as the major theme at the stall to introduce Falun Dafa and the truth of the
persecution to the people.
On Friday, October 31, it was very windy and there was a heavy rain storm
at the beginning of the event, but it didn't stop so many people celebrating
the festival. Practitioners put a few posters of the "Petals of Peace"
story on the marquee so that people could see the truth of the persecution through
the project. When people passed the stall, most people read the banner "Falun
Dafa" and were curious about what the practitioners were providing. We told
them that we are teaching people how to fold the origami lotus flower, and the
story of why we were making them. At the same time, we gave them the Truth flyer and
the instructions with cover sheet "Little Fadu's Story". So many children
and adults were interested in this and became involved in folding them straight
away at the stall. Practitioners were very busy looking after all these people
who accepted the information and who wanted to try.
The festival event went from 4pm - 12am. In the end, hundreds of flyers and
"Petals of Peace" story sheets were handed out. We local practitioners
found this is another good way to have people know the truth of the persecution
and even become involved in supporting Falun Dafa to stop the persecution together.
