(Clearwisdom.net) For telling her relatives in Japan about her sister's so-called "hospitalization" in October, police arrested Luo Zhen, Japanese practitioner Yoko Kaneko's elder sister, in Mudanjiang City, Heilongjiang Province. Her whereabouts are unknown.

As soon as we heard the news, practitioners in Japan gathered in front of the Chinese Embassy, November 16 from 1pm to 11pm, to appeal for her release. Practitioners unfurled banners that read "Free Yoko's Illegally Detained Sister Luo Zhen at Once", "Falun Dafa Is Good" and "SOS from JAPAN to the WORLD Help to get My Yoko out of China Alive." Practitioners distributed truth clarification information to pedestrians and drivers and collected signatures to rescue Yoko and her sister. Several children asked for signature sheets to collect signatures for practitioners.

Practitioners realized that the evil force would behave more fiercely in the human world before its demise. Even telling one's family about another family member's situation can land someone in jail. It shows how weak and nervous the evil is now. Practitioners reminded each other that at this stage we should not slack off in sending forth righteous thoughts. In the meantime we should strengthen our efforts to clarify the truth and break through the arrangement of the old force, offer salvation to sentient beings as much as we can.

Note: Yoko Kaneko (Chinese name Luo Rong) was arrested and beaten for distributing Falun Gong information on the streets of Beijing on May 24, 2002. She was sentenced to one and half years in forced labor camp. She is currently being held in Women's Labor Camp, Daxing County, Beijing
