A police car led the procession, followed by practitioners in golden exercise suits holding banners stating, "Falun Dafa is good," and "Uphold justice in the world," and others. Behind them were two young women in white who carried a huge wreath in memorial, practitioners holding photos of practitioners who have been tortured to death, and practitioners holding banners with words in both Chinese and English, "Persecution cannot Crush our Spirit," and "Falun Dafa."

A "court of justice" was set up on a truck, surrounded by banners stating, "Falun Dafa Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," "Four years is too long, China must stop suppressing Falun Gong," and photos of Dafa practitioners who have been tortured to death by Jiang's regime. "Jiang's ten crimes" were listed on the side of the truck.

Behind the truck was a huge arrangement composed of colorful balloons with the words Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance on them. The practitioners wearing traditional folk costumes of different countries and nationalities formed a grand procession, representing the worldwide spread of Falun Dafa. The practitioners walked peacefully to the Dafa music while sending righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil factors in other dimensions behind the persecution.

In the afternoon, practitioners exhibited "Falun Dafa's Wide Spread All Over the World" display boards at King George Square in front of the Town Hall. There was also a Falun Dafa artistic performance presented. A Brisbane Councillor attended and gave a supportive speech. Beautiful exercise demonstrations and elegant traditional Chinese dances and music attracted many tourists to stop and watch, including tourists from China. They witnessed the widespread of Falun Dafa around the world.

In the evening, practitioners held a candlelight vigil at King George Square and continuously sent righteous thoughts.

Dafa practitioners in Mackay area in Queensland also held activities simultaneously to expose the evil and call for an end to the persecution.
