(Minghui.org) The annual Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival in Quincy, Massachusetts, was held on August 18. Local Falun Gong practitioners set up a booth at the celebration to demonstrate the Falun Gong exercises and raise awareness about the Chinese regime’s crime of organ harvesting from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners. Many visitors signed the petition, condemning the persecution of Falun Gong.

A concerned citizen signs the petition.
During the event, many people were interested in learning the exercises, and asked for information for local exercise sites.
A young lady, who just moved here from Puerto Rico, said that she has been looking for a spiritual practice. She was interested in Falun Gong, and viewed the materials carefully. She asked how much practitioners would charge for instruction and the materials, and was surprised to hear that it was all free of charge. Practitioners told her their own experiences of practicing Falun Gong, and how they have benefited from it. They also told her about the persecution. She signed the petition, and asked her boyfriend to sign too.
Practitioners noticed that more and more Chinese people know the truth about the persecution. A few Chinese students talked to practitioners and signed the petition to support Falun Gong. After signing the petition, a Chinese woman said: “The Chinese Communist Party is evil. I support you.” An elderly Chinese couple passed by. They waved to the practitioners and shouted: “We support Falun Gong! We support Falun Gong!”
