This video documents the Western Shugden Society protests in Philadelphia.

The United States Constitution was adopted in 1787, by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. The Western Shugden Society took advantage of all of the first ammendment rights granted within the constitution (freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and freedom of petition).

The Western Shugden Society will continue to organize protests wherever the Dalai Lama teaches until he gives freedom of religion to Shugden practitioners.
