(Clearwisdom.net) On December 6, the day before the 2008 Malaysia Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference, Falun Gong practitioners held a large outdoor event at the Penang Botanical Garden, a famous tourist attraction. The activities attracted attention from many tourists, who supported our efforts to help end the persecution in China.
At around 4 p.m., about 200 practitioners came to the Botanical Garden and started a group exercise at the small hill in the park's center. The peaceful exercises of Falun Gong drew the attention of many local residents and tourists.
