Upon viewing the art exhibition, a student from Ecuador said that she would make time for the Falun Dafa exercises every day.

Fernando Ojeda and Julio Mayor, two professors from America, had rave reviews of the paintings displayed in the Art of Zhen, Shan, Ren (Truth, Compassion, Tolerance) International Exhibition. They also learned the Falun Dafa meditation and commented on the peacefulness and tranquility they experienced.

They signed the petition to call for ending the forced organ harvesting in China—the Chinese communist regime’s killing of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience for their organs.

Lina from Germany also signed the petition. “People in Taiwan and mainland China share similar ethnic backgrounds. I hope that the mainland will respect freedom of belief, just like Taiwan does,” she said.

An exchange student from Mainland China viewed the photo exhibit and changed the negative view of Falun Dafa that she had developed as a result of the communist propaganda. She remarked, “Falun Dafa is good! I didn’t know that.”

Several Falun Dafa Society members also shared their stories with visitors.
