Office of the Mayor
As Mayor of Minneapolis, I am pleased to extend warm greetings on behalf of our citizens to those gathering today for World Falun Dafa Month.
I know many residents of Minneapolis and the surrounding area are enjoying practicing Falun Dafa, an ancient form of exercise and meditation. I hope the events you have planned for today are a success and that your goals for celebrating and sharing the principles of Falun Dafa are achieved.
I join elected leaders across the country in opposing the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners in China. I hope 2013 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.
Congratulations again as you gather to celebrate World Dafa Month at the Truth Compassion Tolerance International Exhibit on May 6th and 7th 2013 held at the University of Minnesota.
Mayor R.T. Tybak
