This morning while going by Monument Square in Portland, Me. I noticed this young women doing different moves that resembled Tai Chi. They didn’t seemed to be as athletic as Tai Chi and then I noticed the banner that had been hung near her. It was promoting Falun Dafa which is the same spiritual movement from China.
The practice emulates morality and virtue through mediation and slow moving exercises. It was widely accepted in China until in 1999 The security portion of China began to crack down on the practice because of it’s wide spread acceptance and independence. This was follow by physical attacks and punishments. As of 2009 2000 practitioners had been executed.
