Falun Dafa practitioners in Hong Kong gathered at Edinburgh Place on New Year’s Day 2018.
Mr. Kan Hung Cheung, spokesman of the Hong Kong Falun Dafa Association said: “We believe that the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance may one day bring world peace.”
For two men from northern China, this rally was their first live encounter with Falun Dafa. Both of them knew that the Chinese regime was vicious and had instigated members of a pro-communist group in Hong Kong to sabotage Falun Dafa’s events. During this event, they both agreed to quit the Young Pioneers of China, a group associated with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Ms. Tian and her coworkers came from Sichuan. They were surprised but happy to see that Falun Dafa practitioners were free to hold activities in Hong Kong and express their opinions freely.
A mother and son from Shenzhen saw the parade and said, “In China, one would never see anything like this. If one heard anything, it was all the CCP’s propaganda defaming Falun Dafa.”
Ping, a practitioner from mainland China who has lived in Hong Kong for three years, said, “It’s very free here. I get to tell people what Falun Dafa is and what the CCP is and why the CCP persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners.”
