Stand up for Larung Gar – A global day of action!
On Wednesday, 19 October, Tibet groups around the world will be carrying out a Global Day of Action in support of Larung Gar Buddhist Academy. Around the world, there will be peaceful demonstrations to call for a halt to the ongoing removals and demolitions, which threaten to irreparably damage one of the most important sites in all of Tibetan Buddhism.
Our first confirmed location will be the Chinese Embassy in London (49 Portland Place, W1B 1JL) from 4pm. Please join us, Students for a Free Tibet UK and the Tibetan Community UK to stand with Larung Gar.

More protests are currently being organised in the USA, France and Germany, and we will keep you up to date on these (and more) locations as they are confirmed. Keep your eyes on your inbox, or our Facebook page for announcements on events near you. If you are interested in organising a demonstration in your city, please contact us by replying to this email and we can work with you to help spread the word.
This week, Free Tibet has received more details, images and video of the forced evictions and demolitions taking place at the Buddhist Institute. Leaked footage shows monks and nuns being loaded onto buses and taken away, many of them are clearly distressed and crying can be heard in the video.
At least 5,000 people are being removed from their residences, and widespread destruction of much of this incredible place is now underway.
