(Clearwisdom.net) On July 19, 2009, the eve of the tenth anniversary of the persecution of Falun Gong, Falun Gong practitioners in Saipan held activities to expose the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) brutal persecution of Falun Gong and mourn their fellow practitioners in China who have died due to the persecution.

Falun Gong practitioners performed the exercises as a group and displayed banners reading, "The World Needs Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" and "Falun Dafa Is Great" at Banzai Cliff, a popular tourist spot on the morning of July 19. They talked with tourists from China and told them about the persecution, and also distributed fliers and helped tourists quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

Truth-clarification activity at busy crossing

To further expose the persecution, the practitioners set up their banners and wreaths at a busy street crossing at around 2:00 p.m. They distributed fliers calling for more people to help end the persecution.

A candlelight vigil was held on TSL Plaza to mourn Falun Gong practitioners in China who lost their lives due to the persecution. Lotus lamps, made by Falun Gong practitioners, were lit as if to project memories of the persecution victims and display Falun Gong practitioners' strong faith.
