They held rallies and called for help to end the persecution in China.

Arya, a New York policewoman, was touched by practitioners who peacefully did the exercises and held banners calling for the end of the persecution. Arya talked to the practitioners and learned the truth about Falun Gong. She expressed an interest in learning the exercises.

Joseph Kharazishvili, an accountant, received a Falun Gong flyer in Spain two years ago, so he knew about the persecution. He encouraged practitioners to keep up their efforts and let more people know the truth.

Donna Patterson has seen practitioners clarifying the truth in New York and is supportive. She condemned the Chinese regime for persecuting innocent people.

Tashi Khuangsar said he is not against the Chinese people, but he pointed out that the Chinese Communist Party has been violating human rights and depriving people of their freedom of belief.

Many New Yorkers have expressed that Falun Gong practitioners truly follow the principle of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance, and the Chinese government should stop the persecution.
