IMIT members and the core participants of the 'Circle the Bay for Tibet Walk' addressing the gatherings and being felicitated at Tibetan community hall in Richmond, CA
San Francisco: Eight-day Walk around the San Francisco bay area to highlight the critical situation in Tibet and to further the Tibetan independence movement started this morning at Tibetan community hall in the region. International Movement for Independent Tibet (IMIT) organized this long walk through the entire bay area to raise awareness about the situation in Tibet, and to show solidarity to the people of Tibet, and to send a clear message to the Chinese government that the international community is with Tibet. "The march for Tibet will cover 108 miles from the North California Tibetan community hall in Richmond through Oakland, down to San Jose and back up around the Bay at end at the Chinese consulate in San Francisco on March 30." said Ngawang Norbu, the member of IMIT from Boston.

The participants came from all over the bay area; some western friends were also there to participate in the march. IMIT member Doug, who protested at the Tiananmen Square for Tibet during 2008 Olympic was also among the march organizers recording the events. The first leg of the march passed from Richmond to Oakland city hall passing through the grand busy San Pablo Avenue. The participants carried Tibetan flags, and placards demanding the Chinese government to "Free Tibet, Stop the Killing and Genocide in Tibet". People passing and driving through the San Pablo showed their support to the march by waving and honking their cars.

Police security cars and bikes came all along the walk and ensured security and safety of the march. People gathered at the Oakland city hall at the end of the first day's walk, where the gather ring recited "Prayer of truth" and sang Tibetan national anthem.

People made clear during the walk that China should leave Tibet for the Tibetans, and that the Tibet belongs to Tibetans only. Many said that the Chinese government’s repressive policy is responsible for the self-immolation in Tibet, and that the Chinese government should seriously study and resolve the problem in Tibet. The fact that most of the participants are youngsters should be a clear message to the Chinese leadership that the Tibet issue will live until resolved to the satisfaction of the Tibetans.

Mr. Tenpa, one of the core participants has the photos of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Sikyong Lobsang Senge throughout the walk, when asked about this, “This is to tell the world and the Tibetans that we Tibetan have good and efficient leaders, and that we are not leaderless.” He said.

Tibetans marchiing through the street of San Francisco, USA
San Francisco: Tibetans and Tibetan supporters gathered in multitude at San Francisco downtown to commemorate the 54th anniversary of Tibetan uprising against the Chinese occupation of Tibet. People gathered at first at Berkeley city council where the message of Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) Dharamsala was read before the gathering. The City Council member Kriss gave an overwhelming speech in support of Tibetan people’s aspiration for freedom and justice in their homeland. He said it is a grave mistake to blame the people in Tibet of the self-immolation going on in Tibet, it is the social, political and cultural repression going on in Tibet that is to blame. “Berkeley city council as a whole has always supported the struggle and aspiration of Tibetan people; I’m only a representative of the city council.” He said.
Tibetan National Flag was hosted along with the American's before the City council hall, and Tibetan National Anthem "Sishi Phende" was sung at the ceremony.


Later, the people marched to San Francisco downtown and gathered before the City hall. Amidst some five hundred Tibetana and Tibetan supporters, regional executives of Students for Free Tibet and Tibetan Youth Congress made a rhetoric speech on Tibetans struggle for independence and freedom. Richmond Mayor made a strong speech in support for the all the people fighting for justice and freedom. “I’m priveleged and honored to be among the people struggling for good and just cause. We all must stand up and speak for freedom and justice, otherwise we’re all empty vessels.” She said.

Passing through the most crowed lane of the city, the gathering marched from the San Francisco city council to the Union square, the most congested public gathering spot in the city. Throughout the three-hour march, people carrying Tibetan national flags, and the slogans highlighting the Tibetan issues received warm response from the pedestrians and the car drivers.

Around four hundred Tibetans and Tibet supporters made this full day march and participation. The demonstrators made a long stop over before the Chinese embassy in the city, where the slogans to free Tibet and China was made, many Chinese also participated, prominent among them was the Chinese veteran Human rights activist, who lost his legs during 1989 Tiananmen square massacre. He said Tibetans and Chinese all should fight for freedom in Tibet as well as freedom in China. “The communist regime at the center is just a totalitarian regime interested only in keeping hold of their own power, and is least concerned about the general welfare of the people of Tibet, and China as a whole.” He said.

 The full day rally was organized by the Regional Students of Free Tibet and Tibetan Youth Congress supported by the Tibetan Association of North California. Many elderly people expressed their happiness to see many young Tibetan actively organizing and directing the rally. Some young executive members shed tears while delivering speech on Tibetan situation.

These tears from the young Tibetans who had never seen Tibet is a clear message to the Chinese communist regime that they cannot sleep in a complacency that they had swallowed Tibet. The Chinese leadership should understand the reality and give Tibetans their rightful freedom and democracy.
