(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Japan held activities in Sakae, Nagoya's main shopping and entertainment district, on June 27, 2021. They introduced Falun Dafa to people and raised awareness of the ongoing persecution of Falun Dafa in China. 

Practitioners told passersby about the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) crimes of forced organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners who were detained for their belief in China. People readily signed the practitioners' petition supporting the lawsuits against Jiang Zemin, the former leader of the communist regime who initiated the persecution of Falun Dafa.

Nagoya’s lockdown was lifted on June 20, and just a week later many people were out on the streets. Practitioners first practiced the exercises near a circular fountain and distributed truth-clarification flyers. 

People who were passing by could read banners in Japanese and English that said, “Falun Dafa is good,” “Falun Dafa Around The World,” “SOS Stop the Persecution” and “Bring Jiang Zemin to Justice for Persecuting Falun Dafa.”

The outbreak of the CCP virus (coronavirus) allowed many Japanese people to see the evil nature of the CCP more clearly and many people saw how the CCP sought to deceive the world. Many people who were passing the practitioners' activity were more than happy to sign a petition supporting the lawsuits against Jiang Zemin. 

A 70-year-old man signed the petition, and a practitioner gave him a hand-folded paper lotus flower, which he happily hung on his backpack. The man then turned around and showed his backpack to the practitioner. The practitioner realized that there were now two lotus flowers hanging on the man's backpack. The elderly man smiled and said that the other lotus flower was given to him some time ago by another practitioner, and he had always treated it as his good luck charm. 

Three high school boys signed the practitioners' petition without any hesitation after hearing about the persecution of Falun Dafa in China.

When someone who appeared to be Vietnamese passed by the activity booth, a Vietnamese practitioner would hand the person a truth-clarification flyer and tell the person about the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners in China. A group of four Vietnamese students happened to pass by the activity booth and they all stopped and signed the petition after hearing about the persecution. They also took a group picture with the Vietnamese practitioner.

A Chinese man in his twenties had been waiting for the traffic light to change on his bicycle. While he waited, he kept looking over at the Falun Dafa banners. A practitioner went over to the man and asked him if he was Chinese. The man affirmed that he was Chinese. The practitioner then started speaking to the man in Chinese and told him about quitting the Chinese Communist Party and its youth organizations. The practitioner also told the man that if he faced trouble, he could recite the phrases, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” The man sincerely thanked the practitioner.
