(Clearwisdom.net) At around noon of March 25, 2006, more than 4,000 Falun Gong practitioners gathered in Midtown Manhattan and held a grand parade. The parade exposed the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s brutal persecution against Falun Gong practitioners, especially the recently exposed crimes of organ harvesting from living practitioners imprisoned in Sujiatun Concentration Camp. The practitioners called for more people to find out the facts, quit the CCP and have a bright future.

Falun Gong spreads across the world

On Broadway and 39th Street, passers-by and tourists stopped to watch the parade. The grand parade caught the attention of many people. They took photos with camera phones and shot footage with camcorders. The New York mounted police moved in the front, followed by large banners with the words "Falun Dafa" and "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance", and then the Celestial Band, whose sounds reverberated through the skies.

Falun Dafa was initially spread in China. Since the CCP and Jiang Zemin's persecution on July 20, 1999, along with practitioners' peaceful efforts against the persecution, Falun Dafa has spread across the world. So far, Zhuan Falun has been translated into more than 20 languages. Huge book models for Zhuan Falun in both English and Chinese were a part of the parade.

On the well-decorated floats, practitioners of different ethnicities demonstrated the five sets of exercises. A group of more than 100 practitioners demonstrated the graceful exercises to show that Falun Dafa is easy to learn and suitable for both old and young.

Falun Gong practitioners from across the world held banners representing their countries and regions to say to Manhattan, "We are Falun Gong practitioners from far away. We are pleased to come to Manhattan and send Spring greetings to you."

The CCP's brutal crimes in the last 6 years in Sujiatun: harvesting organs from living practitioners, murdering them, and cremating them to destroy evidence

Approximate 1,000 Falun Gong practitioners formed a huge procession to expose the wicked CCP's brutal murder of practitioners during the past 6 years.

A red dragon walked out with a waving tail, symbolizing the CCP initiating brutal persecution against Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. Then came nearly one hundred posters and banners to expose the persecution. Near one hundred people wearing media symbols showed that the CCP's mouthpiece slandered Falun Gong day and night. With string they pulled one hundred people behind, indicating that Chinese people were deceived by CCP's media.

A flatbed float showed the reenactment of barbaric atrocities in Sujiatun Concentration Camp. Police illegally sent practitioners to Sujiatun and doctors harvested corneas, kidneys and other organs from living practitioners to seek a huge, bloodstained profit.

On both sides and the back of the float were huge banners with the words, "The CCP harvests organs from living practitioners in Sujiatun Concentration Camp to seek profit."

Behind the float were several hundred practitioners linked with rope. Their mouths were sealed. Some of them had a symbol of "Sujiatun Concentration Camp" on clothes. This procession indicated that practitioners are forcefully taken to Sujiatun Concentration Camp and that Chinese people do not dare to speak out under the CCP's dictatorship.

Nearly one hundred practitioners held various banners and posters to tell the world's people about the continuous brutal murders of Falun Gong practitioners in China during the last six plus years, especially the appalling atrocities in Sujiatun Concentration Camp.

At the end of the procession was nearly one hundred practitioners wearing white. They carried photos of practitioners tortured to death to commemorate them.

Good will be rewarded with good and evil met with evil

The CCP has killed 80 million Chinese people while in power over the course of 50-plus years, including the brutal persecution against kind-hearted Falun Gong practitioners since 1999.

On November 19, 2004, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published. It exposes the CCP's true nature and compassionately tells the world that the CCP commits all kinds of crimes, predicts heaven's destruction of the CCP and states that renouncing the CCP is the right course to take for people to find a safe future.

A huge banner told the world's people some good news, that nine million people have withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

More than one thousand people held various banners and posters to introduce the Nine Commentaries, expose the CCP's bloody history, demand an immediate end of the murders, a stop to the brutal persecution against Falun Gong practitioners and to bring the culprits to justice. They also called on everyone to see the CCP's true nature and renounce it.

After the parade, the practitioners held a rally in Union Square in Manhattan to expose the CCP's barbaric atrocities in Sujiatun Concentration Camp.
