Rally at the UN

Thursday was a remarkable day of action for SFT. Over one hundred Tibetans rallied outside the United Nations alongside activists for East Turkestan, the Falun Gong, Togo, Ethiopia, and Kashmir. After five hours of chanting, shouting, singing, and speeches (including a powerful one by Uyghur political prisoner Rebiya Kadeerr), we marched all the way across Manhattan, along 42nd Street to the Chinese Consulate, chanting all the way. Our police escort even helped us out by honking to the beat of our slogans! Hu Jintao, the UN, and all of New York were loudly reminded that we will not rest until Tibet is free. Check out some pictures below

    It not easy to hang on to faith at this point but i guess we will just have to hold on. FREE TIBET are the words we will have to chant even to death.
