On November 5th, 2005, practitioners in Australia participated in the Fisher's Ghost Street Parade held at Campbelltown City for the fourth time. The practitioners' procession has won an award every year and received the best walking award this year. Local residents were warmhearted and applauded or waved at the practitioners' procession. Some were indignant after learning the facts of the persecution against Falun Gong in China and the Australian Foreign Minister's signing of certificates restricting the practitioners' freedom of expression in front of the Chinese Embassy.
