The Dalai Lama in Berlin - European Tibet Solidarity Rally
The Dalai Lama, the leader of the Tibetan people and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, will attend and address the rally in Berlin on May 19, 2008, at the closing of his visit to Germany. The rally will take place in front of the Brandenburg Gate, a place that has a great symbolic meaning for German and world history.
This event has been organised at short notice and needs your support! This rally is to show that people in Germany and Europe are standing in solidarity with the Tibetans in Tibet who are experiencing severe repression as a result of the ongoing harsh crackdown by the Chinese authorities against Tibetan protesters. The protests by Tibetans against Chinese misrule began in Lhasa on March 10th and quickly spread across all Tibetan areas in the following days and weeks.
Artists and public figures will appear on the stage to support Tibet and the Dalai Lama.
We appeal to you to make this event a great success. Call and send this email to your friends in Germany and ask them to join this rally. It would be even a greater to see you there!
The Tibet Solidarity Rally is organised by the Tibet Initiative Germany (TID) and the Tibetan Association of Germany (VTD) supported by human rights organisations such as the Society for Threatened People .
Place/Time: Brandenburger Gate, Berlin, Monday, May 19, 2008, 16.00 - 18.00 hrs.
