On November 11th, Falun Gong practitioners were invited to participate in the 91st Veterans' Day Parade in New York City. The theme of the parade was "Freedom Is Not Free." The parade is the oldest and largest of its kind in the nation. About 20,000 people, including veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, marched from 26th Street to 56th Street in Manhattan. Countless civilians watched the parade.

The Falun Gong procession consisted of three parts: Heavenly maidens, an exercise demonstration, and a waist drum troupe. Several attractive banners that read "Falun Dafa Is Good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" were displayed. The spectators welcomed the procession with warm applause and greetings.
A few practitioners distributed Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials along the parade route.
Mr. Chen from Brooklyn said that he was very happy to see the Falun Gong procession: "The Chinese Communist Party's negative propaganda about Falun Gong has misled many people. I am very glad to see that the Falun Gong procession is welcomed here."
Chen said that he would go a practice site to learn the Falun Gong exercises.
