St. Petersburg, Russia: Displaying Beauty, Raising Awareness

June 21, 2015 | By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Russia

(Minghui.org) Traditional Chinese dances, tranquil meditation, and spirited waist drum performances drew a crowd to a presentation given by Falun Dafa practitioners near the railway station in St. Petersburg, Russia on June 6, 2015.

With these performances, practitioners wished to convey the beauty and joy of cultivating Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, Falun Dafa’s core principles. At the same time they raised awareness about the 16-year brutal persecution of this peaceful spiritual practice by the Chinese Communist Party [CCP] in China.

Many people were shocked to hear about the CCP’s state-sanctioned crime of harvesting organs from living Falun Dafa practitioners in China for profit. They signed a petition to be forwarded to the United Nations Human Rights Council, calling for an end to this crime against humanity.
