Whereas, the practice of Falun Dafa, based on the principle of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance, has enabled millions of people worldwide to deal with stress and anxiety by upgrading their morality and improving their physical and mental well being and tranquil exercises; and
Whereas, since its introduction to the public in 1992 by Mr. Li Hongzhi, the practice has benefited more than 100 people in more than seventy nations worldwide; and
Whereas, the persecution of the practitioners of Falun Dafa is an attack on basic human rights and should not be tolerated anywhere in the world.

"Falun Dafa Week"
