Petition Against Violence in Tibet

This isn't community news, exactly, but some things, like Senator Obama's speech on race, are too important not to share.

A Tibetan man called a friend named John who is part of the climbing community on satellite phone last week. The man said the Chinese were going door to door and they were almost at his house. "You probably won't hear from me again," he said. "I called to say goodbye."

I just got a link to this petition to support the Dalai Lama from a friend in Adam's Point. The Dalai Lama is calling for restraint and dialogue. Please share it widely.
