There, the presidents of the main tibet support organisations gave a speach. On site, the participants shouted slogans showing the chinese government, that the sacrifice of the tibetan monch is not forgotten!
The event was supported and carried out by the following organizations: Swiss tibetan friendship assosiation, tibetan women organizations in switzerland and the tibetan youth organizations in europe.
