"Light from Tibet" 100 TPC organizer attends Dalai Lama talk.

Light from Tibet

Saturday, April 21, 2012 – It was a sunny day in Long Beach, California and an important day for many reasons. In the early afternoon, His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama spoke at the Tibetan-Chinese Friendship Society and 7th InterEthnic Interfaith Leadership Conference. Approximately 100 people attended the conference and many issues were discussed including the middle way, independence, and democracy. His Holiness’ words continue to resound, “…the struggle is not easy; it is long-term and difficult. Your heart is very important.” …

…After His Holiness Dalai Lama’s talk at the Long Beach Convention Center, about a mile away, was Voices from Flames: The Current Situation in Tibet, an event that featured the film screening of “Leaving Fear Behind,” a heart-wrenching documentary with interviews of Tibetans living in Tibet and their views on the 2008 Olympics as well as their living conditions. The filmmaker, Dhondup Wangchen, was arrested shortly after he made the film and is currently serving a six-year prison sentence for “subversion of state power.” Amnesty International is calling for his release.
