The commemoration of the 23rd anniversary of April 25 Appeal was held in front of the Chinese Consulate in Fukuoka, Japan. Falun Dafa practitioners called for an end to the persecution of the practice by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) which has persisted for 23 years.
Ms. Wang Xuemei, who is 81 years old, started practicing Falun Dafa in China in 1996. After moving to Fukuoka in 2002, she distributed materials about Falun Dafa and the persecution. In 2007, she move the Chinese Consulate.
When she meets people from China she distributes The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and offers to help them quit the CCP and its youth organizations. When she meets Japanese people, she offers them materials in Japanese. No matter the weather Ms. Wang has not stopped.
Ms. Wang said, “Our efforts calling for an end to the persecution will definitely not stop until the persecution stops. The world’s people have already changed greatly. In the hot summer, passersby offer us drinks. During stormy weather, the policemen at the consulate tell us to take care of our health.”
Reaching Out to Chinese at Tourist Attractions
Ms. Naka Teruko, 76, started practicing Falun Dafa in 2003. When she learned about the brutal persecution in China, not only did she mail a large number of truth materials to China, but she also exposed the CCP’s criminal acts of organs harvesting from practitioners while they are alive to the Japanese citizens and mainstream society, including the members of parliament.
Although Ms. Naka Teruko does not know Chinese, she held boards with explanations in Chinese at tourist attractions to persuade people to quit the CCP. Every day, she leaves the house early and returns at night. There are no rest days.
Ms. Naka Teruko later moved in with her daughter’s family. Initially, her daughter was worried that her mother joined a religion, or was being duped of her money, etc.
However, Ms. Naka Teruko told her, “Just observe me for a year and you will understand that Falun Dafa is good.” That was 10 years ago and her daughter noticed that despite her age, Ms. Naka is very energetic. Her daughter now understands the truth and is very supportive of her mother practicing Falun Dafa.
