Local newspaper Saipan Tribune announced the May 13 car parade the day before the event. The parade started around 10 a.m. and was completed in about one and a half hours. 

Practitioners in Saipan have held car parades every weekend since May 1st, and their activities were approved by the local police department. The banners on the vehicles attest to the popularity of Falun Dafa throughout the world. Practitioners also handed out fliers and talked to people about the merits of Falun Dafa and the numerous proclamations issued by various levels of government in many countries. 

After the car parade, practitioners distributed fliers, handmade paper lotus flowers, and displayed banners at a green area near a busy intersection from 3 – 6 p.m.

Background: What Is Falun Dafa?

Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) was first introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in Changchun, China in 1992. The spiritual discipline is now practiced in over 100 countries and regions worldwide. Millions of people have embraced the teachings—which are based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance as well as five gentle exercises—and experienced uplifted health and well-being.
