(Minghui.org) Practitioners held activities in Hisaya-odori Park, in Nagoya, Aichi Province to introduce Falun Dafa and expose the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) ongoing persecution of the spiritual discipline.

A New Year celebration was being held by local Chinese residents in the park, and practitioners told them about Falun Dafa and distributed informational booklets about withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organisations.

Practitioners displayed banners in Chinese, English and Japanese that read: “Falun Dafa Is Good,”  “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” and “China: Stop Murdering for Organs of Practitioners.”

Many passersby received informational brochures from practitioners during the four-day event. Some thanked the practitioners while others encouraged them, “Keep up the good work!” Some Chinese people also said, “I believe what practitioners say about Falun Dafa” and, “I stand with you!”

Locals Support Practitioners in Resisting the Persecution

Mr. Yitou said, “China does not have freedom of religion or freedom of speech under the communist dictatorship. Please keep up the good work!”

Mr. Tadokoro encouraged practitioners to continue exposing the CCP’s persecution of Falun Dafa and told practitioners to keep up the good work.

Mr. Satou explained that he previously heard how the CCP persecutes Falun Dafa and said, “The persecution of Falun Dafa is a persecution of human rights. I hope Falun Dafa practitioners in China can be careful and survive the persecution. China’s dictatorship will not last for long. I hope you keep up the good work!”

Ms. Oota said, “I really think what the CCP is doing is truly forbidden. I hope you keep up the good work for the sake of peace. I do not approve of communism in China. Let’s all work together for the better!”

Mr. Okada was shocked to learn that in 1999, the number of people practicing Falun Dafa exceeded the number of CCP members. He said this was the first time he heard about Falun Dafa and he encouraged practitioners in China not to give up. He also said that forced live organ harvesting is inhumane.

Mr. Tanaka’s father once worked in Shanghai and he said some of his colleagues practiced Falun Dafa. He encouraged practitioners and said, “Do not give in to the persecution and persist onward.” Mr. Tanaka works in video production and makes documentaries on social media. He has been interested in Falun Dafa for a long time and wanted to take the opportunity to make a documentary about Falun Dafa. He discussed his idea with the Aichi Prefecture government.

Ms. Hoang Thi Thu from Vietnam began practicing Falun Dafa in 2021. She said, “I hope everyone can take the opportunity to learn about Falun Dafa. Falun Dafa shows us how to become better and healthy people. Practitioners abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in our daily lives. I will do my best to raise awareness about the CCP’s forced live organ harvesting and stop the atrocities from happening.”
