I will be attending the Special International Tibet Support Group Meeting in Delhi from 11/25-12/3 and am looking forward to sharing a report on this meeting at Tibet Day . As many of you may know, a recent Tibetan Special General Body Meeting was concluded in Dharamsala , India .  The outcome of the meeting has been a renewed and strong vote of confidence in the Dalai Lama’s Middle Way Approach in resolving the issue of Tibet and in His leadership. It’s been widely reported that the Dalai Lama is advising prudence. However, if things do not change, it appears that a push for  full Independence may be sought was also expressed  at their meeting. The dialogue amongst the Tibetan people and with Tibetans and their supporters is ongoing. We are looking forward to seeing you at Tibet Day at Ft. Mason on December 6.

Thank you. 


Sincerely,


Giovanni Vassallo | President | Bay Area Friends of Tibet 1310 Fillmore Street, Unit 401| San Francisco , CA  94115 phone: 415-264-3264 | fax: 415-502-7892 | giovanni@friends-of-tibet.org | http://friends-of-tibet.org/
