On April 25, 1999, tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners came to the Appeal Office near Zhongnanhai to appeal. They were peacefully waiting to tell the country's leaders Falun Gong's real story and the recent police's detaining and beating the practitioners in Tianjin.

Photos were taken on April 25 on Fuyou Street, Beijing. The red wall across from Falun Gong practitioners is Zhongnanhai. Policemen in the pictures were directing Falun Gong practitioners to stand in certain spots. Most of the practitioners were quietly reading. Throughout the whole process, good order was maintained and the traffic ran smoothly.
