On 10th March 2014, the Tibetans and their supporters all around the world will observe the 55th Anniversary of Tibetan Uprising Day.
In New Zealand, the Tibetans and their supporters will be observing that day, starting in Wellington with 3 events as follows:
1 Members will be meeting outside the Chinese Embassy on Glenmore Street from 7.30 – 9am to let the Chinese know that we haven’t forgotten about Tibet and get support from passing people and cars.
2 At 1pm – 1.45pm we will meet on the steps of Parliament with Tibetan flags to remind the NZ Government that people of New Zealand have not forgotten about Tibet. Please feel free to meet with us.
3 Friends of Tibet will screen the film “Tibet Beyond Fear” at St Andrews on the Terrace at 5.30pm to about 7pm. This is a one hour documentary about a nun and monk who led protests against the Chinese occupation in Tibet and were detained and endured years of torture – an apt film for Tibetan Uprising Day. Directed by Michael Perlman who was here recently with the Falun Gong film.
