The multicultural festival in Warsaw, Poland was held on August 28, 2011. At 1 p.m., spectators stood along the float parade path from bank square downtown to old town. On the eye-catching Falun Dafa float, practitioners demonstrated the exercises, while many spectators waved their hands and shouted: popierram (support)!

After the parade ended, the practitioners’ float was parked across from the practitioners’ stand. Many spectators came to have a photo taken with the float. Some people followed the hand gestures of the practitioners demonstrating the exercises. Many of them picked up flyers and asked where they could learn Falun Gong and the website of Falun Dafa in polish.
When viewing the poster boards with information exposing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s persecution of Falun Gong, people were shocked and asked the Falun Gong practitioners on site, “Why? Why has this happened?” The practitioners explained the facts about Falun Gong again and again, and exposed the CCP’s lies and violence. Many people saw the signature collection form on the table and signed it without hesitation. Many people lined up to wait for signing the form.

One Chinese person viewed the posters and renounced the CCP and its affiliated organizations on the spot. Several groups of Chinese passed by and stopped to learn the facts.
When it became dark, many people were still learning the Falun Gong exercises in front of the float. Many others learned about folding paper lotus flowers and writing Chinese words inside the tent. People left slowly after the event concluded at 9 p.m.
