(Clearwisdom.net) On March 17, 2003 over one thousand Falun Gong practitioners gathered in Geneva, Switzerland. They came for the 59th session of the United Nations Human Rights Commission.

As early as 8 o'clock in the morning, the Falun Gong practitioners filed into the park "Parc De Bastion" beside the Place de Neuve to prepare for a parade at 9 AM. Some practitioners who arrived early took the opportunity to study the Fa and practice the exercises. The scene was quite moving. I talked to practitioners from different countries, including Germany, United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, Australian, etc.

"I came from England. I came to attend the Experience Sharing Conference. I want to tell the people, 'Falun Dafa is good.'"

"I came from Germany. We came here to appeal for all Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted in China. We want to tell the world, China should stop the persecution immediately."

"I took vacation days to come here. My whole family came. We wanted to stop Jiang's persecution of Falun Gong in China and other countries."

Here are some photos of practitioners practicing exercises and studying the Fa.
