Saved Tenzin...now Free Him!

Remember back in December, when this was our chief concern: "Two years ago, Buddhist monk and teacher Tenzin Delek Rinpoche was arrested by Chinese authorities and sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit. Time is running out for Tenzin - he could be executed by the Chinese government at any moment."

The good news is, that he wasn't executed. We all made a difference collectively to save an innocent man's life. The bad news is that the Chinese have decided that Tenzin Delek will be spending the rest of his life in one of the worst, most notorious prison systems in the world. We can't and won't let that happen.

In the meantime, we should all look back, three months later, on a great week of ruckus-raising->Worldwide Action Video - (3 mins): Quicktime, MPEG-1 , Windows Media Player, Real Media Player VBR

For you blog/videoblog/vlog/indymedia geeks out there, this video was a successful experiment in collaborative, distributed independent media. We asked all of our students to send in photos, video, and audio from their actions around the world- India, California, Washington, New York, Poland, London, France, Spain....This media was collected, and then edited using Adobe Premiere on Windows XP, though it just as easily could have been done in iMovie. The video, in various formats, was then posted online using http://www.streamload.com to host it. Since then we've had at least 3000 downloads/viewings- very exciting result!
