Falun Gong Practitioners in Toronto Celebrate World Falun Dafa Day

Practitioners held rally in Clarence Park at noon of May 6, followed by a grand parade in Toronto’s Chinatown. They were welcomed by spectators along the path. People who learned about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution and the CCP's state-sanctioned live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners condemned the CCP's atrocities. Some Chinese people renounced their memberships in the CCP and its affiliated organizations after learning the nature of the CCP and its crimes.
