In April 2003, a German practitioner wrote to a Mayoress inviting her to a Falun Gong activity, telling her more about Falun Gong and revealing the facts behind the persecution in China. The Mayoress quickly wrote a reply, outlining her concerns and worries about human rights issues: Many people have been tortured, even killed because of their belief, their religion and their right to think freely in many places around the world. To publicly express my standpoint is my duty as a citizen and is a political obligation. Im very happy to contribute in any way I can to this activity.
At the same time she encouraged practitioners To have formidable courage, firm belief and brave hearts to advance the efforts of all those people who are working tirelessly to end the repression of Falun Gong in China.
