On December 9, Chicago had its largest snow of this winter. The weather channel reported that it snowed five inches in downtown Chicago in about 3 hours. On December 10, the snow continued, but the Falun Dafa practitioners gathered in front of the Chinese Consulate in Chicago to protest the persecution of Falun Gong as usual. They shoveled the snow to make a small place to sit down, practice the exercises and send forth righteous thoughts.

In the snow and wind, practitioners passed out flyers to passing by cars and pedestrians, and continued to strongly protest the six-year-long persecution of Falun Gong in China.
