Good Afternoon! Ladies and Gentlemen,

My name is Thomas Jao. I'm the chairman of Chinese Consolidation of Benevolent Associations (CCBA, also known as Chung-Hwa-Hui-Kuan) representing twenty-eight organizations of overseas Chinese in Washington DC. I am honored to be here and say a few words to show our support.

Our association has been looking into this matter (Falun Gong) for a period of time. We know your organization is actually doing exercises and has no other purposes. So, we would like to give you our hearty support!

We hope the situation of persecution in Mainland China can be improved peacefully and quickly!

Thank you!
