on Federation Square
was held on busy Federation Square and on the banks of the beautiful Yarra River.
It was chilly and drizzled in the morning. Practitioners gathered on the square
to set up. When all was set up and the banner reading "Celebrate the Fourteenth
Anniversary of Falun Dafa's Public Introduction" was unfurled, it became
clear and sunny.
On one side of the square, practitioners
sang a chorus ("Sit side by side"), performed dances and other programs to express
respect and appreciation to Master and commemoration to fellow practitioners tortured
to death in China. On the other side of the square, posters and reenactment of
torture means were set up to expose the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s persecution
of Falun Gong. Many passers-by stopped to look.
The anti-torture exhibition
caught the attention of many passers-by. They were shocked at the brutal torture
means, such as small cage, force-feeding, and piercing nails with sharp bamboo,
which CCP uses to persecute practitioners.
A middle-aged man paid attention
to practitioners' exercise demonstration. He said to a practitioner, "I have
passed here several times and saw your anti-torture exhibition. But today it is
my first time to see your exercise demonstration. I am eager to learn the practice."
The practitioner shared his own beneficial experience of practicing Dafa and showed
him the five sets of exercises.
James, 35 years old, signed petition to stop
the persecution and said to a practitioner explaining the facts, "Good luck to
you! Whatever political system it is, people should have rights and freedom of
belief. I support your petition completely."
Helena, a little over 30 years
old, is a student majoring in photography. She heard for the first time about
Falun Gong and the persecution in China. She signed on the petition to call for
an end of the persecution right away. She said that the news of CCP's live
organ removal should be known to everyone. She would let her friends and family
members know the CCP's barbarity.
