(Clearwisdom.net) On February 2, 2011, the eve of the Chinese New Year, Falun Gong practitioners in Kyushu gathered in front of the Chinese Consulate in Fukuoka and held a candlelight vigil to protest the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) 11 years persecuting Falun Gong. They called on the international community to learn about Falun Gong and stop the persecution.

Every Chinese New Year since 1999, Falun Gong practitioners have gathered in front of the Fukuoka and Nagasaki Chinese Consulates and protested the CCP’s persecution by holding banners and posters and having a candlelight vigil. More than 3,000 Falun Gong practitioners have died in China due to violence in police custody.

At 6 p.m. on February 2, practitioners came to the Fukuoka Chinese Consulate and unfurled banners that read, “Falun Dafa is great”, “Stop the persecution of Falun Gong”, “Disintegrate the CCP to stop the persecution”, “Support the 87 million Chinese people who have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations” and so on. They sent forth righteous thoughts every half hour.
