More Than 600 to Protest Dalai Lama in NYC this Thursday

Press Release from prweb.com

This Thursday, 600 Tibetan and western Buddhists from around the world, including 200 monastics, join with one voice to demonstrate against the Dalai Lama outside of Radio City in NYC where he will be speaking. In this unprecedented event, more than 100 Tibetans will participate in the Western Shugden Society (WSS) organized protest to speak out against the man who has been touted as an icon of peace and tolerance. Impassioned Buddhist Protest the Dalai Lama on the Streets of NYC

Many Tibetans are now feeling very encouraged by the success of the Western Shugden Society demonstrations. Most Tibetan Shugden practitioners are too intimidated by the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in Exile to protest against the Dalai Lama. However, the number of Tibetans at the demonstrations is increasing rapidly. A Tibetan Geshe at the recent protests at Lehigh University said “In the Tibetan settelments in India if Tibetans were to protest like this, they would be killed.” So it’s no wonder that many Tibetans are still too intimidated to join the protests. But as these protests continue to gain momentum more Tibetans are joining in to request the Dalai Lama to give religious freedom.
