In a groundbreaking move, Tibetans in India are planning a massive protest in New Delhi during Hu Jintao's visit next week under the banner of the Tibetan People's Movement. As the Chinese President prepares for his first trip to India, Tibetans have an opportunity to tell him what they think of him and China's policies towards Tibet, especially in light of the recent murder of Tibetan refugees at Nangpa Pass. The groundwork for this action is being done by an organizing committee of activists from SFT, Gu Chu Sum, TYC, TWA and NDPT and one of the biggest challenges we face is raising the funds to support this mobilization. We appeal to every Tibetan and supporter who believes that President Hu must hear the voice of the Tibetan people to support this action.

In light of the recent crackdown on Tenzin Tsundue, who has been threatened with deportation if he protests (see http://phayul.com) during Hu's visit, it is clear that Tibetans must send a clear and strong message that it is not just one person advocating for Tibetan freedom. Tibetans must demonstrate that the Tibetan issue is not about one man - it is about 6 million Tibetans suffering every day under Chinese rule.


Any amount will help but $100 is suggested and will go a long way in India.

Please email back ASAP with your name, location and amount of your pledge. I will send the details of where and how to donate later but first, we need to figure out how much money we can raise.

Thank you for your support in advance. Bod Gyalo!

I created a new community!
I figured a lot of people would be interested in this new community. I just created it. Anyone can feel free to join and post!


It is a community for anyone interested in any aspect of Tibetan culture to share experiences, photos, ask questions, whatever :-)

Need your Help!

I am a student of the University of Leipzig, Germany. I found your group because some friends and I did an online-survey on memory, politics and events. It would be great if people from all over the worlds could fill in the survey. I have already 38 answers from India but it would be great if you could help me to get 100 answers. You can find the survey at www.globus05.net
You can fill in the survey in English!

Thank you so much fro your help! If you know someone who could be interested in this survey just forward him or her the link.

I'm currently teaching English to Tibetan refugees in Sera, India.

My friend, Lobsang (a monk-in-training) is curious to spend time in the U.S. or Canada, primarily to learn English in a primarily English-speaking country. Ideally, he would like to devote much (most?) of his energy there learning English (as opposed to trying to find income).

Does anyone have any info on Tibetans visiting/immigrating to USA/Canada or have any useful contacts to whom I could refer him?

These are pictures from Berea College's SFT chapter. More people showed up then they thought. People filled out petitions for Tenzin Delek's release. The rally went really well. Here's some pic's for you to enjoy :)

Dear SFTers,

We are writing about the Week of Action for
Tenzin Delek Rinpoche from
December 2nd-10th. There is only a short time
left to influence the
Chinese government's decision on TDR's case, and
here in the SFT office
we feel like we need to give the Week of Action
everything we have, in
one big coordinated push for his release. We need
your help to do it!

The Week of Action from Dec 2nd-10th (the date of
Rinpoche's sentencing
to Human Rights Day) is part of a campaign plan
that Tibetans and
supporters around the world will take part in.
Actions at Chinese
consulates and embassies on every continent will
remind China of the
Tibet movement's power and our determination to
see justice for Tenzin
Delek. We are picturing every consulate and
embassy in North America
hearing about Tenzin Delek over the course of
that week and having
'business as usual' disrupted in some way.

Can your chapter participate? Please email
freya@studentsforafreetibet.org to let us know
what you can do, and what
ideas you have for actions (especially if you
live near an embassy or
consulate!). If you don't live near an
embassy/consulate, you can still
get the message across in many ways - a few ideas
are to collect letters
or petitions and fax them all on a specific day,
to organize a group of
people to call the Chinese embassy on the same
day (or every day for a
week!), or to courier a card or something unusual
to arrive each day of
the week, calling for TDR's release.

As with other Days of Action, we will prepare a
sample press release and
other materials that your group can revise and
use, and will help in
whatever other ways we can. We know that these
collective actions really
make an impact on the Chinese government, so
please be in touch about
what your chapter wants to do, and let's make
this the week that
convinces the Chinese government that they must
not execute Tenzin Delek

Save Tenzin
In three months, a Tibetan monk could be executed for crimes he
didn't commit. His name is Tenzin Delek, and he is a Buddhist
monk, who's only crime is trying to preserve Tibetan culture. He
was not given a fair trial, and neither was Lobsang Dhondup, who
was executed on December 2 2002.
In a few days, the Dutch government, which holds the European
Union Presidency, will hold talks with China about human rights.
Please urge them to speak up for Tenzin Delek to ensure that he
is released and his death sentence overturned by clicking on the
link below.

As some of you may know March 10th marks the date when some 300,000+ Tibetans fought against China occupying a sovereign Tibet by surrounding Norbulingka in order to protect HH The Dalai Lama. Apparently many satellite networks or someone up there is paying attention as right around this time many Tibet-related films are playing on Cable/Satellite television. A few of these are Escape From Tibet which will be on Link TV on Saturday March 6 at 8pm, Sunday March 7 at 2am, March 7 at 8am and March 7 at 2pm. Seven Years in Tibet will also be playing March 6 at 11am on USA, and Kundun will be on Starz cinema at 11:20 today.
