Bloomington, Indiana -- The Walk for Tibet’s Independence will mark the 50th anniversary of the Tibetan uprising in Lhasa against the Communist Chinese occupation. The walk will commence from the monument circle in Indianapolis, Indiana, on March 10, 2009, Tuesday at 10:00 am. It will proceed through Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, and end at the Chinese Consulate in New York, approximately 8 weeks and 900 miles later.

Jigme Norbu (son of Takster Rinpoche and Nephew of His Holiness the Dalai Lama) will be the sole participant, although, others are encouraged to join him. Wangchuk Dorjee, a 66 year old ex-Tibetan parliament member, will assist Mr. Norbu. Jigme Norbu is dedicating this walk to the memory of his father, who spent his life fighting for Tibet’s Independence, as well as, the memory of all our brothers and sisters who have died in peaceful protest to the brutal suppression of Tibet by Communist China for the past six decades. As Jigme’s father always said, “Tibet belongs to Tibetans” and Tibet has never been part of China.”

For media interviews please contact with Wangchuk Dorjee at (360) 773-8661.

Any monies donated for this walk, will apply to the associated expenses.
