The Mayor of Toledo wrote the following reply to a Falun Gong practitioner's letter:

Respectful Sir,

I carefully read your letter introducing the information about the Spanish Falun Dafa Association and the terrible situation that Falun Gong practitioners face under persecution in China.

As you may know, the city of Toledo has always been well known for its multi-cultural tradition. In history, Christianity, Judaism and Islam peacefully co-existed for many centuries. This spirit of tolerance has become a major characteristic of this city, and is also a valuable inheritance for our future generations.

I want to let you know that I have carefully read the information you sent to me. I will take every possible opportunity to raise your issue to the relevant people in Spain and abroad, and to appeal for the end of this persecution against Falun Gong practitioners in China.

Please accept my sincere wishes.
