Tibet’s Significance for our World
Saturday, July 25, 10:00am – Noon
Who cares about a country high in the Himalayas? Why worry about what happens to people who speak a different language and live very differently from us? Come and learn the significance of the environmental situation in Tibet (the World’s Third Pole), and about the profound human rights abuses occurring in Communist Chinese occupied Tibet at all times. Learn the history and consider what you can do to make a difference. Come out and support the visiting Tibetan Buddhist monks, many of whom had to escape from Tibet in order to study without censure. Free. Donations welcome!
