SFT Canada Action – Vancouver, Sept 16th

Hi everyone,

Tonight’s action was a resounding success, Kate and the rest of SFT Vancouver made a fantastic effort this past week and managed to pull together a great demo and action. We had about a hundred supporters in addition to many Falun Gong and Tiawanese who noisily greeted Hu Jintao. About half way through the demonstration Kate scaled a 50 foot flagpole and hung two banners before staging a mock hanging. It lasted for over an hour and in the end they just let us walk away without any charges or even a warning. It really was a night of victories.

I have attached a few of the first photos from the action (that is Kate hanging under that shroud). Also, visit http://www.940news.com/nouvelles.php?cat=23&id=91702 for the first bit of coverage (the mock hanging is not reported on but our fabulous media spokesperson Pema Lhalungpa managed to get a great quote in there!)

Talk to you all soon,
Jeff Langlois

    HATS OFF to Kate and the rest of the Vancouver crew for putting together such a great demo and action!!!

  2. Thanks for the update Jeff! That was a really powerful demonstration, really inspiring. We need some help here in Calgary, but there are still many people like myself who pray every day for Tibet’s freedom.

    Tibet will be Free!
