Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) is a practive involving meditation, exercises, and the cultivation of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance within oneself. Marchers in this parade/protest were passing out literature about the practice itself and about some of the reported problems of persecution, especially that which is occurring in China.

UPDATE: Some readers have suggested that my definition of Falun Gong is not complete. This is not a researched feature story, and readers are encouraged, as always, to seek out further information. As suggested, Wikipedia may be a start. Cheers!
