The 27th Cherry Blossom Festival was held in Suigen Park, Toyota City, Japan. Falun Gong practitioners and Tuidang (quit CCP center) volunteers participated and distributed information to passersby about the spiritual discipline and its cruel persecution in China/
Many tourists signed the petition calling for the prosecution of Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), for initiating the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999.
A family of seven came to view the cherry blossoms. The father signed the petition after learning of the organ harvesting crimes in China. He handed the petition to his wife and children, who all signed it. He told the practitioners, “The CCP is so evil. Keep up the good work!”
Chinese visitors also watched the performances and accepted a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and informative materials. A volunteer advised them to quit the CCP, the Communist Youth League, and the Young Pioneers.
A middle-aged man came on Sunday morning when the practitioners were setting up the banners. A practitioner told him that people in over 100 countries practice Falun Gong but that it was being persecuted in China.
The man said, “The CCP are bandits!”, when the volunteer advised him to quit the CCP, he quit the Young Pioneers without hesitating.
