8,000 Strong Falun Gong Parade

Tranquil Smile

On Friday 15th May there was a Rally to support 200 million Chinese renouncing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and a Parade of 8,000 Falun Gong practitioners through the streets of New York from UN Dag Hammarskjold via Grand Central Station down to the Chinese Consulate. Leading the parade was the Celestial brass band, filling their intruments with bursts of melodious musical energy.

After the parade, Falun Gong practitioners gathered to meditate in Times Square. #freedom2meditate t-shirts were worn to display their wish for freedom of  belief in China. Falun Dafa practitioners are persecuted in China. Many have been tortured to death.
