(Clearwisdom.net) Between August 26 and 30, 2004, practitioners in South Korea held various truth clarification activities during Jia's visit. Jia is a member of Central Political Committee of the Chinese ruling Party and the chairman of the 9th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

The practitioners made preparations one week before. The truth clarification activities were held wherever Jia visited.

Sending forth righteous thoughts

In Seoul, from the first day of Jia's arrival, practitioners held banners and explained the facts from the airport to hotel. Practitioners obtained a permit beforehand and waited for him in front of the hotel where he stayed. Jia's group was scared and did not enter through the front gate but entered side door without notifying others during his stay.

On August 28, Jia visited Samsung Incorporation. Practitioners held banners beside the highway from Seoul to the plant calling for an end to the persecution and bringing Jiang to justice. Practitioners also explained the facts to police on site and helped them understand to avoid interference.

In the afternoon of August 28, Jia left Seoul. Before his leaving, practitioners read an open letter in both Chinese and Korean in front of his hotel to call on China to stop the persecution of Falun Gong immediately.

When Jia arrived at Seoul Airport, practitioners unfurled a banner with the words "Falun Dafa is great" within a short distance after obtaining permission from police who knew Falun Dafa. The banner and peaceful appeal of the practitioners left an impression on the delegate.

On the afternoon of August 28, Jia arrived at Gyeongju. Practitioners held banners and sent forth righteous thoughts from the airport to the hotel where Jia stayed. Practitioners obtained a permit to demonstrate in front of the hotel. Jia entered through a side door again.

On August 29, Jia visited Bulguksa Temple, which is thousands of years old. Practitioners obtained a permit and demonstrated the exercises in front of the entrance of the temple. Some practitioners held banners worded "Falun Dafa is great," "Bring Jiang to Justice," and "Stop the Persecution of Falun Gong."

In addition, some practitioners entered the temple and sent forth righteous thoughts. Several practitioners saw Jia, shouted "Falun Dafa is great" and unfurled a banner worded "Falun Dafa is great." A witness said that Jia looked bad. Some practitioners tried to approach Jia to talk with him but were stopped by police.

When Jia left, staff accompanying him in the bus smiled towards practitioners while giving them thumbs up.

August 30 was the last day for Jia's visit and he was scheduled to visit Hyundai auto plant. Fearful of meeting practitioners, Jia's group issued wrong information to media to mislead practitioners. In the morning news from United News, it was said that Jia finished visiting and returned home the day before. However, practitioners did not change their plans and continued their truth clarification activities. Actually, Jia left around 2 p.m. of August 30.

Jia is the chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. He followed Jiang Zemin to persecute Falun Gong. Practitioners in South Korea wished he would stop committing crimes. Practitioners dealt with him peacefully and delivered a message that Koreans can practice Falun Gong freely.

Furthermore, there were some small conflicts with those police who were deceived by slanderous Jiang's media. When practitioners explained the facts to them peacefully, the police asked in concern, "Is Falun Gong good?" "How does one practice it?" "Where can we buy the books?" Even some police learned the exercises on site.
