Hubert Dafflon: Falun Gong Principles are Noble and Important
Hubert Dafflon, Member of the Grand Council of Fribourg, said, “Before the holiday at the end of this year, I would like to extend my best wishes to Falun Gong [practitioners] and the founder, who has given us the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

My personal wish for the coming year is that all Falun Gong practitioners in China will be free, and that especially these universal principles will be made the norm for our world. These principles bring hope. Thanks!”
