US Senator Johnny Isakson Congratulates 'World Falun Dafa Day' and Calls for Human Rights in China
(Clearwisdom.net) On May 1, 2009, US Senator Johnny Isakson wrote the following letter to send his best wishes to Georgia Falun Dafa practitioners as they celebrate World Falun Dafa Day and to call for human rights in China.
UNITED STATES SENATE
May 1, 2009
It is with great pleasure that I send my best wishes to each of you as you celebrate World Falun Dafa Day on May 13, 2009. This is a most important day and I will be thinking of you and know you will enjoy this very special occasion.
I believe that repression of religious freedom and basic human rights anywhere is detrimental to the advancement of human rights everywhere. The United States is founded on a free society where life, liberty and certain inalienable rights are guaranteed. That being said, I will continue to work with my colleagues on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to ensure that individuals around the world are free to practice religion as they choose, and to press the Chinese government to improve its record on human rights issues.
With warmest personal regards,
