A Candle for Tibet

A friend of our group today sent me the link to the site of the campaign: “Candle4Tibet“. The initiative says:

“August 7th 2008 is the day before the opening ceremony of The Olympic Games in Beijing. On this day we aim to create the world’s greatest LIGHT PROTEST, when at least 100 million people from all over the world will light a candle and say YES to freedom in Tibet!

All you are asked to do is to light a simple candle
on August 7th at 9 pm in your own time zone.

Light the Candle at your home, workplace or in a public place. Put the candle in your Window, or on your desk, or anywhere else where other people will see it and hopefully do the same.

Our light protest will be seen by billions on TV screens all over the world on the day the Beijing Olympics open. We are not against the Olymipcs or anything else for that matter, we stand for Freedom. Period.

On the following day we will issue letters to every head of state in the world to tell him exactly how many people from his country wish Tibet to be free. We will also demand that each one of them will act for the freedom of Tibet.

We will also issue letters to the general secretary of UN, the government in Beijing and to other global organizations with data on global participation”

They also plan to flare mountain tops and sky scrapers with red smoke. A peaceful way of protesting for freedom. May it strengthen global solidarity.

    Our support and thoughts are with the Tibetan people, they’ll need all the power and fortitude they can get taking on the might of a regime bereft of any notion of civil conduct.
    We ought to do more than just light candles for the Tibetan people.
    Though the sad thing is that what’s required is something more like the luminosity of a supernova to get into the dull skulls of the CCP leadership.
    But it is a start, and we will keep the pressure on, even if the spineless politicians rather play servile cowardice in the guise of the now ever so ‘respectable’ realpolitik.

    Excellent Blog by the way
