At 4:30 p.m., the team arrived at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. Banners were hung on the car and worded "Stop persecution of Falun Gong, The most brutal killing in 21st century, CCP kills 80 million Chinese people in its 50 years control, please read Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.

At a press conference, Ms. Joy from Boston said that they started at 6 a.m. from Boston and held press conferences on the way to protest the seven-year long persecution of Falun Gong. She said, "My father teaches in Department of Biology in Qinghua University. He was not surprised after hearing live organ removal. His department often harvests organs from prisoners to conduct experiments. They don't care who the prisoners are. In China there are no human rights or dignity. Who cares whether Falun Gong practitioners are tortured to death for their belief in Truth, Compassion, Tolerance?" She said it was because of CCP's brainwashing for many years that made his father and others lose the basic conscience.

Passers-by stopped to learn the facts after seeing the banner worded "Chinese labor camp revealed! Organ removal from live Falun Gong practitioners". A lady tourist named Nancy was shocked and said, "There is nothing more cruel than this! Is it the same as Nazi's holocaust?" His husband took photos of the scene.

At 6 p.m., the car tour team reached Wilmington and held another press conference. Local people were shocked too. A group of high school students stopped playing. One of the students said, "This is too horrible. This is like the Nazis! I'll tell my friends." Another man said after reading the handouts, "How come such a horrible thing happens? What is their government doing?" A lady working in a nearby bank said, "This is too horrible. We feel sorrow. In today's world there is such totalitarian regime. I don't understand why our government still does business with such regime."

Several congress representatives from Pennsylvania co-signed a letter to President Bush urging him to demand Hu Jiatao to allow investigation of all labor camps and prisons and stop persecution of Falun Gong immediately.
