Great crew in Santa Barbara

More folks arrived overnight and this morning and the workshops began with a Nonviolence 101 workshop facilitated by SFT Board member Sophia, and Matt, SFT HQ's Operations guy. We've got a good crew of volunteer trainers and staff on the ground with former SFT staff Thupten & Alma, top-notch media trainer Celia Alario, Susan Mizrahi from Int'l Campaign for Tibet, Dorothy Berger from Int'l Tibet Support Network, and many others. More importantly, we've got a diverse group of fifty young freedom fighters from all over - about half Tibetan. We're just gettin' started but it's already obvious we have a great crowd here.

The weather here in Santa Barbara is smiling on us. It's quite a difference from the last time we came to Southern California in January - for SFT's second Free Tibet! Action Camp in Malibu. Torrential rains and mudslides had us evacuating 2/3 through camp, relocating to the "Jolly Roger Motor Hotel" in Venice for the conclusion of the training. We conducted media workshops and protest role-plays in the motel's conference room!
