Pumped Up at Pauenhof


We're heading into dinner on the fourth night of camp and I'm feeling incredibly pumped about it. The participants represent the strongest, most active leaders for Tibet that Europe has to offer. As I write this, our activists are networking together and making plans on how to work coherently to produce stronger actions. Armed with new skills in direct action planning, climbing, political theatre, non-violent resistance, and grassroots organizing, I think the prospects for the Tibetan cause in Europe look great.

I helped facilitate a workshop yesterday on Direct Action Planning and Strategy with Han and I walked away anxious to get back to the real world and do some direct action! Fortunately I think all of our participants are feeling this way. Hu Jintao is coming to the US in September and Bush is going to China...and the tiny hamster on the treadmill of ideas is spinning away in our collective minds. This camp is all about how Students for a Free Tibet makes a difference and when we leave here on Monday night, we'll have thirty more kick-ass action organizers ready to take their efforts for Tibetan independence to a whole new level.

    I am so glad to hear about the activities at camp and all the youth activists in germany learning how to help Tibet regain our independence. SFT represent the best prospects Tibetan people have for our fight. Thank you to everyone at SFT and in germany learning how to fight even better for Rangzen.

    and there will also be state a chinese state visit to the U.K. so i think with the strong leadership of SFT-UK, we can show the chinese government that SFT and the support for the Tibetan cause is growing! you know it makes them crazy to see the support for Tibetans everywhere they go and they realize it is somehting that they cannot ignore!
