(Clearwisdom.net) The World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention was held on the 15th and 16th of September, 2007 in Kobe, Japan. The closing ceremony was held in Osaka. During the convention, Japanese practitioners held a parade, and handed out materials clarifying the facts about the persecution of Falun Gong outside the convention site. They also took the opportunity to clarify the facts to the Chinese people face to face. A number of practitioners from Taiwan also came to support these activities.
Listening to the song "Coming For You," some Chinese businessmen wiped away tears
The parade held on September 15th and 16th helped business people from China understand overseas Falun Dafa practitioners. In particular, on September 16th, practitioners handed out a lot of materials to Chinese business people to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa. They also handed out VCDs and copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in Kobe's Chinatown, in front of busy shopping malls and the seaside recreational area where visitors take in the night atmosphere. The practitioners also clarified the facts about Falun Dafa to these Chinese business people face to face. Many of them accepted the materials with curiosity.
At 8:00 p.m., business people attending the convention went shopping at a popular shopping mall. At about 9:00 p.m., they started coming out of the shopping mall one group after another, to get on their buses. One practitioner proposed an idea, and the practitioners started singing the song "Coming For You." In an instant, practitioners' compassionate and powerful voices reverberated in the sky of Kobe, their voices sung the words:
"Coming from far away,
Again and again, I come for you,
Precious Chinese people, did you know that the whole world is saying,
'Falun Dafa is good, Falun Dafa Hao!'
Do not miss this precious chance."
The practitioners repeatedly and compassionately sang the song, the business people's facial expressions changed, they heard and understood the meaning of the song and they were deeply touched. Some wiped away their tears while in the bus, some made a Heshi gesture, and some others waved to the practitioners to express their gratitude. One Chinese businessman said loudly: "Long Live Teacher Li!" some of them walked up to the practitioners and shook hands with them.
The police who had been accompanying us said: "Have you been practicing as a choir?" The practitioners smiled and shook their heads. The police officers were touched. After 10:00 p.m., the police told the practitioners that two more delegations of Chinese business people were still in the shopping mall. The practitioners understood the police officers' kind thoughtfulness, and began to sing the song over and over again until they saw the last bus leave.

On the morning of September 17, all Chinese business people attending the conference went to visit Osaka. Practitioners also made a trip to Osaka. At 9:00 a.m., they demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises. As the business people passed by the practitioners, many stopped to take photos of the peaceful exercises. A Chinese businessman said out loud: "Falun Gong is the best among all cultivation practices!".
Another Chinese businessman said: "Li Hongzhi is remarkable, having so many disciples."
When seeing the practitioners' parade procession marching in the streets, particularly the waist drum troupe in the lead with its thunderous drumbeats, a Chinese businessman standing on the bridge said: "Li Hongzhi is remarkable, having so many disciples."
A governor received a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party
An elderly practitioner handed a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to an elderly man at the front of a Chinese businessmen delegation and kindly advised him to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). People standing behind the elderly man pointed out: "He is our Governor, if you are able to persuade him to quit the CCP, all of us will quit!." Everybody laughed.
Upon learning that the elderly man was truly a Governor, the practitioner decided to hand him a special edition about quitting the CCP and personally talked with him. A man who appeared to be a secretary walked up and tried to stop the practitioner, the practitioner said: "I would like to have a good talk with our Governor, and tell him what is in my heart." So he told the governor about the news that Jia Qinglin was sued on September the 14th in Osaka for his participation in the persecution of Falun Dafa. The Governor listened to the practitioner and accepted the materials. Most people in the delegation were interested and asked for materials about the lawsuit against Jia Qinglin.
Chinese business people in the bus were so excited that they stood up and laughed
The barricade of banners at the end of the parade procession were about quitting the CCP. Practitioners held banners reading "Heaven will eliminate the CCP," "Quit the CCP to save one's own life." The eye catching banners were in yellow and blue. While marching, practitioners shouted, "Heaven will eliminate the CCP," "Quit the CCP to save one's own life," "CCP is not China," "Without the CCP, there is a new China," "Have you read The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party?" "There are 26 million brave people who have quit the CCP?" "Have you quit the CCP?"
A bus loaded with Chinese business people passed by the procession. At the beginning, these people saw the procession passing by while being seated, some of them said something with hand gestures, and some took photos. Gradually, most of them stood up and looked at the direction of the procession laughing and cheering with excitement.
