<What is Peace March for TIBET>
An annual peace walking march to support Tibet will be held in Tokyo as part of world wide Tibet support campaign to remember the anniversary of the tragic event in Tibetan history occured in 10th March 1959. Held by TSNJ(Tibet Support Network Japan), in corporation with Liaison Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Tokyo. Every year, official statement from the 14th Dalai Lama is made for this memorial day. Please bring your friends and join this peace march to show your support for Tibetan people!

<Why Protest Chinese Embassy>
The Chinese government has promised to improve its human rights situation tohost the 2008 Olympics, and the event that is supposed to celebrate diverseethnic cultures is about to be held in a few months. However, the actualsituation in Tibet has not changed at all. The world turns a blind eye toTibet where our ethnic pridehas been violated, to allow China to hold this worldwide event. As aTibetan, I can notjust remin silent and accept this situation.
This will be the first protest by Tibetans in front of the Chinese Embassy in Japan, since March 10, 1959 when His Holiness the Dalai Lama was forced to exile from Tibet.
This will be a non-violent, peaceful protest which abides by the Japanese
law. We obtained a permission from the local police station for this activity.
Your understanding. support, and participation will be most welcome!
