A banner is displayed as practitioners of spiritual movement Falungong gather at Sydney's Town Hall Square on July 20, 2012. The group intends to present an open letter to the Sydney office of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard urging her to denounce what they say is a 13-year-long persecution of the spiritual practice in China. Falungong -- a movement loosely based on Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian philosophies -- enjoyed growing popularity among the Chinese in the 1990s, but was banned by China in 1999 after thousands of practitioners silently converged in Beijing to air their grievances, showing their organizational might.
