Earlier this afternoon, thousands of practitioners of FALUN GONG from all over the world participated in the parade on 6th Avenue. The parade aimed at telling the story of Falun Gong's growth in the mainland and other countries, and also the pervasive persecution of the practitioners in China since 1999. Falun Gong's core principles center on truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance.
From wikipedia:
Falun Gong (Chinese: 法輪功) is a spiritual discipline founded in China by Li Hongzhi (李洪志) in 1992. It has five sets of meditation exercises and teaches the principles truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance, (真,善,忍), as set out in the main books Falun Gong and Zhuan Falun (轉法輪). The teachings deal with issues such as "cultivation of virtue and character", "moral standards for different levels", and "salvation of all sentient beings." The books, lectures, and exercise materials have been translated into over 40 languages and are available on the Internet free of charge.
