Dear Friends:

Congratulations on the [...] World Falun Dafa Day. I'm sorry I could not be with you in person to celebrate this happy occasion.

In this country, we often take granted our ability to practice our religions and speak our minds without fear of persecution. I believe that Falun Dafa practitioners throughout the world should be guaranteed those same basic freedoms. Please know that I will continue to speak out against the Chinese government's campaign against Falun Dafa practitioners and all those who simply wish to practice their beliefs in peace.

Again, congratulations and best wishes.

With regards,

Mark E. Udall
