(Minghui.org) The increasing number of criminal complaints against former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin, which amounts to over 146,000 as of August 13, 2015, has attracted much attention from the public inside China and overseas. In Taiwan alone, nearly 100,000 signatures have been collected since July, which have been sent to both the Supreme Court and Supreme Procuratorate in China to support the lawsuits.
Below are some stories that occurred recently when practitioners in New Taipei City, Taiwan, collected signatures from nearby retail areas and markets.

“This Is Important and I Am Very Happy to Help”
When practitioners told passersby about the lawsuits on the evening of August 1, a middle-aged man watched for a while and then asked a practitioner, “I am from Mainland China and I will immigrate here soon.” He signed a petition and asked a practitioner to help him quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organizations, “You are doing the right thing. Please keep it up,” he said.
Practitioner explains criminal complaints filed against Jiang
Two young men in their 20s walked by. A practitioner explained why so many criminal complaints have been filed against Jiang and asked, “Do you want to sign the petition to support it?”
“I want to,” replied Mr. Li from Hunan Province, “but my mother is a Party secretary. If she hears about this, I will be in big trouble.”
“Please do not worry about this. Both your mother and you want a happy, peaceful life. But if one is associated with this regime that harmed tens of millions of innocent people, how could he or she have a safe future?” the practitioner explained.After Mr. Li signed the petition, his friend, Mr. Chen from Taiwan, signed as well and thanked the practitioner, “This is important and I am very happy to help.”

96-Year-Old Woman: “I Am Glad I Lived Long Enough to See This Happening”
As Ms. Tsai, 96, and her family was taking a walk in the market, they stopped and asked practitioners what was going on. “I am from Shanghai and my daughter-in-law is from Anhui. We know what’s going in China,” she signed the petition while chatting with a practitioner.
“I am glad I lived long enough to see this happening ,” the woman said with a big smile.
A young couple signed the petition and continued talking about it as they walked away. “We should tell more people about this,” one said excitedly.

After reading the posters and pamphlets in detail, Mr. Wu wanted to sign the petition. But his wife stopped him. “You still have business over there. What if doing this [signing a petition] will get you into trouble?” said Ms. Wu.
Seeing their hesitation, one practitioner explained to them that, by suppressing innocent practitioners and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, Jiang has undermined the moral values in Chinese society. “There have been many reports that Taiwan businessmen lost their fortune to the totalitarian regime.When nobody stands up to support the righteous, the society will be in chaos and disasters, like the recent explosion in Tianjin, abound.”
Mr. Wu nodded and turned to his wife, “I think what she [practitioner] said makes sense. Helping this [suing Jiang] is also helping ourselves.” He signed the petition and said, “Jiang will be punished for his crimes. That is for sure.”
