Tibetans and Supporters To Join Worldwide Vigils for Martyrs of Tibet
Friday, 03 February 2012 13:43 The Tibet Post International .Dharamshala, India: -
The political leader of Tibet, Dr. Lobsang Sangay's administration has called for worldwide vigils on 8 February in view of the critical situation inside Tibet following a series of self-immolations and the recent killing of peaceful Tibetan protesters by the Chinese security forces.
"As Chinese everywhere were celebrating the first couple of days of the Year of Dragon on January 23rd and 24th, 2012, Chinese police fired indiscriminately on hundreds of Tibetans who had gathered peacefully to claim their basic rights in Drakgo, Serta, Ngaba, Gyarong, and other neighboring Tibetan areas. Six Tibetans were reportedly killed and around sixty injured, some critically," the Kashag (Cabinet) of the Central Tibetan Administration said in a statement Thursday.
To express our deep sadness and solidarity with the Tibetans who have sacrificed their lives for Tibet's cause, Tibetans and supporters around the world would take part in worldwide vigils and prayer services on Wednesday, 8 February, the statement said.
The Kashag requests everyone to conduct these vigils peacefully, in accordance with the laws of their country, and with dignity.

Thank you Dearest Raja for this great as ever Post here.
I am of the firm view that Tibetan freedom is the "LITMUS TEST FOR THE FREE WORLD"
As long as Tibe remains under the clutches of China - there is no meaning for the Word " Human Rights" and there is purpose for the "United Nations"
Let the world Unite to Free Tibet
As per the Kashag’s call for a worldwide vigil on February 8 2012, Tibetan exiles from all across India held candle light vigils and prayer sessions wearing black masks to express their solidarity with the sufferings of the Tibetan people inside Tibet.
