Falun Gong practitioners' commemorative activity of the April 25 Appeal in front of the Chinese Consulate attracted several local government officials and the media.
Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Zhang said, "Ten years ago today, the law-abiding citizens' appeal was later defamed by the CCP as 'besieging Zhongnanhai,' and the CCP leadership used it as an excuse to launch a brutal persecution campaign against Falun Gong. However, their campaign to eradicate Falun Gong has instead pushed Falun Gong onto the world's stage and provided an opportunity for people all over the world to learn about Falun Gong."
"As of today, Falun Gong has been spread to over eighty countries, and has been awarded over one thousand proclamations and recognitions from countries around the world. The April 25th Appeal may be an instant in the long history of mankind, but it illustrated Falun Gong practitioners' peacefulness and compassion as well as their determination to seek freedom of belief. Falun Gong practitioners' spirit of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance has awakened many people."
Ms. Zhang continued, "The April 25 appeal was the beginning of Falun Gong practitioners' rational anti-persecution efforts. The CCP claimed it would 'eradicate Falun Gong in three months'; its dream has been completely shattered. Ten years have passed, facing the CCP's inhumane and barbaric persecution, Falun Gong practitioners, who have endured huge pressure amid tribulations, have still remained compassionate and tolerant, courageous and steadfast. They have clarified the facts about Falun Gong, and exposed the CCP's lies and brutal persecution. Falun Gong practitioners will continue their efforts until the persecution stops."
Chinese Consulate staff accepts truth clarification materials
At the end of the commemorative event, Falun Gong practitioners delivered related documents and truth clarification materials to two staff members of the Chinese Consulate, who took the materials from the security guard.

Falun Gong practitioners' spokesperson Mr. Xie said, "Falun Gong's peaceful and rational anti-persecution efforts have lasted for ten years. We hope that they [staff of the Chinese Consulate] will think about good and evil, right and wrong, and stop the persecution of Falun Gong, no longer do anything to assist the tyrant to do evil, position themselves on the side of good, and create a beautiful future for themselves and their families."
