Unlike the cloudy weather of previous days, the sky was crystal clear on the morning of the parade. At 3:00 p.m., the Divine Land Marching Band performed their first music piece "Falun Dafa Is Good" at Gransci Square near Chinatown, arousing lots of enthusiasm.

In his introduction, an Italian Falun Gong practitioner told the public that the Divine Land Marching Band is made up entirely of Falun Gong practitioners who follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. However in China, Falun Gong practitioners have been brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist regime for ten years and the persecution continues today.

The practitioner also said that with the exposure of the Chinese Communist regime's atrocities, more and more Chinese people have come to recognize the regime's evil nature. To date, over 62 million Chinese people have quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizsations.

People learn about Falun Gong

In the afternoon, the Divine Land Marching Band, wearing blue and white traditional Chinese costumes, started the parade along the streets of Milan. Their spirited appearance won praise from the spectators. Almost everyone happily accepted leaflets to learn more about Falun Gong.

The music played by the Divine Land Marching Band was powerful, bringing the beauty of Falun Dafa to the people of Italy. At the same time, the lively drumming also encouraged Chinese people. Some local Chinese people, with smiles on their faces, told practitioners that they also wanted to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party, its youth league and the pioneers.

Led by the Divine Land Marching Band, Falun Gong practitioners held banners that read "Falun Dafa is good", "Support 61 million brave Chinese people who have withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organisations" and others. The parade started from Gramsci Square and finished at Arco della pace Square in the city centre. The activity lasted until 6:30 p.m.
