Going to the Olympics?

If so, the International Campaign for Tibet would like to give you a simple white Tibetan prayer scarf (khata) to take with you, as well as a copy of the ICT’s Tibet Travel Guide. I assume the latter is for the off chance that the Chinese government opens up Tibet for foreign travelers during the Olympics. And the former is to show support for the people of Tibet, who are approaching the 50th anniversary of Chinese occupation next year.

Not going to Beijing? You can help by signing the “Race for Tibet” petition to, in the ICT’s words, “make the Olympics a catalyst of change for Tibet.”

BTW for local folks, the Dalai Lama will be here in town beginning on Saturday. More info here.
