UN SEND FACT FINDING MISSION TO TIBET NOW !
Commemorating the completion of one year since the project UN SEND FACT FINDING MISSION TO TIBET NOW ! by the Tibetan Community of Switzerland and Leichtenstein, hundreds joined a rally yesterday in the southern Swiss city of Geneva.
UN SEND FACT FINDING MISSION TO TIBET NOW ! is a two year campaign project headed by the TCSL in solidarity with the struggle inside Tibet and to demand the UN to send an fact finding mission to independently investigate the abuses against Tibetan people by the Chinese authorities. Under the context of this campaign, a chapter action of peaceful protest is carried out every month in front of the United Nations office in Geneva.
At Palais Wilson, where the march began, the rally was addressed by the Tibet supporter, Mrs. Marguerite Contat Hickel, Co-President of the Geneva Constitutional Council and President of Swissaid Geneva. Mrs. Marguerite expressed her personal support for the cause and said the world recognizes the Tibetan problem. Despite the inaction by the larger international community in terms of concrete support, she encouraged the rallyists and the Tibetans to never give up the peaceful movement that the world identifies with the Tibetan struggle movement.
Arriving infront of the Palais des Nations, the rally was addressed by the President of TCSL reviewing the year‘s campaign in the context of UN send a fact-finding mission to Tibet Now! Artist Nelung choking along with cultural troop from section Horgen performed for the audience.
The rally ended at 16.00 in the after noon with a proud rendition of the National Anthem. Photos..
