On 14 July, around 30 Dafa practitioners took an "SOS Walk" in the center of Toowoomba City, sending urgent messages to the local people: "SOS! Stop the Killing in China" "SOS! China, Stop Persecuting Falun Gong." The local newspaper (The Chronicle) covered the event and carried a report and photos on two separate days.

As practitioners walked along the main streets in the city, passers-by showed their warm support by putting up "V" signs or honking car horns as they drove past the procession. After the walk, practitioners continued their hongfa activities in the grand Central Shopping Centre. When learning the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution in China, some local people said to the practitioners, "You are right to step out and tell the truth. If we all do the same, it will help make a difference." " No one should be persecuted for their beliefs and we hope you will succeed in your effort to stop this horrible brutality".
