Tibet Lives After Olympics

Lhasa on my mind...

A rally for Tibet is planned for Sunday, August 24 (the closing day of the Beijing Olympics) to be held in front of the United Nations in New York City. The organizers of the rally include Students for a Free Tibet, the Tibetan Women’s Association and the Tibetan Youth Congress, and they have asked the International Campaign for Tibet and our supporters to join in sending a message to China that the Tibetan struggle continues long after the Olympics conclude.
The event is planned to start at 11:00 in the morning at
g Hammarskjold Park, 47th Street and 1st Avenue.
Thousands of Tibetans from all over the United States are expected to attend. The Tibetan people and their supporters made sure that China’s crackdown in Tibet this spring and summer was known to the Olympics audience, in spite of the Chinese government’s determination to control every element of its Olympics story.
I hope
you will join the rally to amplify the call for human rights in Tibet and basic freedoms for the Tibetan people! For more information, please email Mr. Tsering Palden at
