Fascinated by the performances and exercise demonstration, many people read the photo exhibition and talked to practitioners for more details. They were appreciative of the information and encouraged the practitioners to keep up the good work spreading the news. Many signatures were collected on a petition calling for an end to the persecution. Some people expressed interest in learning Falun Dafa.
Chinese tourists stopped to watch the celebration and took pictures. Some talked to practitioners while others called out, “Falun Dafa Day!” “Wow! What a great event!”
Several Chinese quit the Communist Party organizations. A Chinese lady told a practitioner that she had lived overseas for years and had found out a lot about Falun Gong. She thought it was great and wanted to learn it. She asked the practitioner to take a picture of her with practitioners doing the exercises in the background. She also quit the Communist Party organizations.
Zheng said he saw the Falun Gong exhibition in Chinatown every day and had seen many other Falun Gong activities. He signed the petition, took some introductory fliers, and wanted to learn the exercises by using the instruction available on the Falun Dafa website.
The two-hour parade started at the Chinese Embassy at 11:30 a.m., passed through the busy downtown shopping district and Chinatown, and concluded at Trafalgar Square.
