(Minghui.org) Proclamations issued in Minnesota and Indiana praise the benefits of Falun Dafa on the occasion of the 16th World Falun Dafa Day, May 13, 2015. Towns and cities reiterated their support for practitioners' peaceful efforts to end the persecution in China.

“I join many elected leaders across the country in opposing the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners in China. I hope that 2015 World Falun Dafa Month brings heightened awareness to the peaceful appeals of practitioners around the world to end the illegal detainment to practitioners in China,” says Betsy Hodges, mayor of Minneapolis, the state capital of Minnesota, as she proclaimed May 2015 to be World Falun Dafa Month.

The proclamation from the city of Rochester, Minnesota, notes, “It is urgent to call for an end of the Chinese Communist Party's bloody harvesting organs from live Falun Dafa practitioners and the inhuman persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners... the persecution of the practitioners of Falun Dafa in China is an attack on basic human rights and should not be tolerated anywhere in the world.”
