(Clearwisdom.net, November 3, 2003) On November 1, the 2003 Asian area Falun Dafa experience sharing conference was held in Tokyo, with many practitioners from Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan attending. The theme of this Fa conference was, "Strive forward together, a bright future lies ahead". Teacher's Fa picture was hung in the middle, and the atmosphere was solemn.
During the Fa conference, practitioners from different countries shared their experiences and understandings of clarifying the facts during the process of Fa-rectification. After listening to fellow practitioners' speeches, attendees deeply felt Master's vast compassion. The conference lasted one day and the entire conference hall was filled with a compassionate and peaceful atmosphere.
On the morning of November 2, practitioners from different areas of Asia held a group practice in a park in Tokyo. At 10 am, practitioners held a symbolic tribunal to try dictator Jiang who initiated the persecution of Falun Gong. A member from the International Judicatory also delivered a speech and expressed his intention of suing Jiang.
At 1 pm, after sending forth righteous thoughts, practitioners held a truth-clarifying parade that lasted more than 2 hours. This was the largest parade held by Falun Gong practitioners in Japan. Attendees included 80-year-old senior citizens to young infants in their mothers' arms. Practitioners held banners that read, "Jiang Zemin sued in different countries for committing torture and genocide", "Stop the persecution of Falun Gong", "Immediately release Yoko Kaneko", "Come home, Chen Xi!" "Rescue Chu Keming". In the following procession, practitioners held banners imprinted with words, "Falun Dafa is great!" "The world needs Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance". The performance team included a group of female practitioners dressed in beautiful Tang Dynasty costumes, a waist drum team and a dance team who were dressed in bright and colorful folk costumes. Their performances displayed to people the beauty of Dafa.
In the evening, under the Tokyo Tower, a candlelight vigil was held to commemorate fellow practitioners who have been persecuted to death. Practitioners' representatives from different countries gave short speeches cherishing the memory of fellow practitioners and expressing that they would continue to thoroughly and broadly clarify the facts and bring Jiang to justice in the court of conscience and morality.
