(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners from Indonesia are using various opportunities to raise public awareness of the 16-year long persecution of Falun Gong in China. The recent international competition, the Ironman 70.3 Bintan, offered such an opportunity.
The event was attended by 800 athletes from Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, China, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Morocco, and included a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bicycle race, and a 13-mile run.
Along the major pathways of the event, practitioners demonstrated the exercises, held banners, passed out informational materials, and collected signatures on petitions that condemn the persecution.
Practitioners explain the recent wave of lawsuits against the former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin for persecuting Falun Gong.
