(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners in Japan were shocked to learn that Ms. Gao Rongrong had been tortured to death. They went to the Chinese Embassy on the morning of June 21, 2005 to strongly protest the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) brutal persecution of Falun Gong, and appeal for severe punishment for her murderers.

Japanese Falun Gong practitioners protest the persecution in front of the Chinese Embassy

After the images of the grossly disfigured face of Gao Rongrong was publicized around the world in May 2004, the case gained wide attention from the international community. After suffering severe and prolonged torture from electric shocks that disfigured her face, Gao Rongrong was successfully rescued, and she personally exposed the Jiang and Luo regime's systematic persecution of Falun Gong. Out of retaliation, the head of the 610 Office, Luo Gan, stepped in. Under his instructions, the Liaoning Province Chinese Communist Party Political Judiciary Committee, the Procuratorate, the Department of Justice, and the Police Department together committed crimes: They concealed any and all information about Gao's case. Falun Gong practitioners who participated in rescuing Gao Rongrong were abducted and subjected to brutal torture and abuse. On June 16, 2005, Gao Rongrong died in the emergency room of China Medical University Hospital of complications stemming from torture and abuse while in custody. From Gao Rongrong's face being disfigured to her being tortured to death, it is obvious that the methods the CCP used to persecute Falun Gong are brutal and vicious. We call for an end to this evil persecution that has lasted for six years.

Practitioners held banners and the photos of Gao Rongrong, whose face was disfigured from electric baton shocks, to clarify the facts to passersby and the police. When practitioners delivered the photos of the grossly disfigured face of Gao Rongrong and material calling for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong to the Chinese Embassy, the Embassy staff refused to accept them.

Falun Gong practitioners sincerely hope that the staffs of Chinese embassies and consulates will clearly see the situation and choose justice, and not assist the CCP to do evil, thus becoming its accomplices.
