On the eve of Mid-Autumn Festival just after the SOS! Global RescueWalk across Japan started, practitioners heard the horrifying news from China that a female practitioner, Yu Xiuling, was thrown to her death after a lengthy beating by police. While China was celebrating the Mid-autumn Festival and families were getting together on this special day, the persecution of Dafa practitioners by Jiang Zemin and his regime has been escalated. On September 30, sixty practitioners in Japan once again gathered in front of the Chinese Embassy in Tokyo and held an urgent press conference to expose the evil and ask for justice. They called for:

"Dismantling the 610 Office and Bringing Luo Gan to Justice!"

"Stop persecuting and Killing Falun Gong Practitioners!"
