Delicious Tibetan and Chinese Food will be served!


Of the many struggles around the world - including Israel-Palestine, Sri Lanka and Sudan-South Sudan - the China-Tibet case is one of the least discussed.  Over two decades of dialogue attempts between Tibetans and Chinese have brought little progress and frustrations are on the rise. Since 2009, there have been over 109 cases of Tibetan SELF-IMMOLATION reported. Each side blames the other for these events without understanding the root causes of the struggle.
