“Hmong Heritage Preservation Committee is not an organization but a voice for the people… This Heritage is created by the Hmong people live in the twin cities to represent the community to stand the issues… today we come here to protest… the reason is to rescue Lao Family Community… to again have the services like in the past… now there is no services in the Lao Family Community… this is the first reason… the second reason is for the newly created Lao Family Foundation that it is taking ownership of the Hmong New Year in St. Paul and Hmong July 4th event… “ said Tha Ying Her, Chair for the HHPCM.
“I say to the protestors and everyone at home… I believed that the protestors understand in the wrong way… From the beginning to now, they changed their wording a lot… I believed that the protestors have been listening to people that lied to them and brainwashed them… as right now, they reduce the blame on us… they said they wanted Lao Family Community, the New Year and the tournament…” said Chu Pheng Lee, President of LFCM.
