Falun Dafa practitioners from Japan collected signatures at the entrance to Daidogei World Cup in Sunpu Castle Park, November 1-4, 2019.

Many people signed the petition.

An elderly Japanese encouraged the practitioners and said, “What you are doing requires a lot of hard work, but it's so important to expose the nature of the Chinese Communist Party! Keep up the great work!”

After he signed the petition, a middle-aged man brought his children to signed as well. He said, “I heard about the CCP's organ harvesting a long time ago, but I didn't know how to help stop this barbarous crime. I'm glad you are collecting signatures here. I brought my children to sign as well. We hope this crime will be stopped immediately!”

A group of middle-school students signed the petition condemning organ harvesting, commenting, “Such a terrible thing is happening in this world!”, and, “Any human being would want to do something to stop it!”

A continuous stream of people came to sign the petition and express support for Falun Dafa.
