Anniversary of 1959 Tibetan Uprising


Went into Dublin today to help hand out leaflets about the March 10 uprising in Tibet in 1959 against the Chinese invasion and occupation of that country. That was the year the Dalai Lama had to flee for his life. Thousands of Tibetans were murdered, thousands imprisoned and tortured; and the oppression and torment continue to this day. The West will not stand against China as they all do business with the Chinese. Money takes precedence over morality. We were happy with the response on the street, especially from young people who came up to ask us what it was about. A 21 year old girl said, "so you are asking that we be aware of what is going on there and that we not forget the Tibetans?" Exactly. For more information you can go here: www.tibet.org.
