Japanese Falun Dafa practitioners are conducting an SOS Urgent Rescue Walk in Niigata County for the safe, timely return of Yuko Kaneko.

At 1:30 PM, July 20, Japanese Falun Dafa practitioners held a press conference in Niigata City and then started their SOS Urgent Rescue Walk. They will return to Niigata City on July 28. The total length of the walk will be more than 130 km. Falun Dafa practitioners from Hiroshima and Osaka are walking with them. They will call on all city, district and village governments for help as they pass by. The walkers will clarify the truth to the general public and ask for their help to rescue Yuko Kaneko, who is being illegally detained by the Jiang regime. They will collect signatures from kindhearted people along the way.

Many practitioners from other regions came to help and collected signatures in Niigata City on July 20-21. Many kindhearted folks in Niigata gave their signatures. Many were moved by how we devoted ourselves to rescuing our fellow practitioner. After signing their names they said, "Keep up the good work!"

The Niigata Daily reported the event on July 22. The headline read, "Falun Gong Practitioners Conduct a Protest Walk in Niigata County." The report described, how Chinese citizen Yuko Kaneko, a housewife from Kamiyama, Sado Hamotimati in Niigata County, is being unjustly held by the Jiang regime. She is 37 years old and is now detained in Beijing. Kaneko went there to protest the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the Jiang regime. The rescue effort team will visit the Niigata City government on July 22 and call for its support. On the same day, they will also talk with the Niigata County government and Niitu City government. They will also visit Nagaoka City, Sanzyou City, and other cities, districts, and villages. They plan to reach out to a total of ten different government departments and end their walk on July 28.
