Professor Samdhong Rinpoche, Chairman of the democratically elected Tibetan exile parliament was on a lecture tour of the UK last week sponsored by the Tibet Society. He spoke for the first time of a Satyagraha, a non- violent civil disobedience campaign inside Tibet, which he intends to lead in the near future. "Time is running out for Tibet," he warned, "and this may be the final attempt. We have no future if we are not prepared to make sacrifices for restoring the dignity of the Tibetan people."
The Tibet Society will be promoting the Satyagraha over the months ahead, as we believe that this initiative is bold, courageous and, given sufficient support inside and outside of Tibet, has every chance of success.
