A Lotus Grows in Brooklyn


For a Free Tibet

This past gray, chilly Wednesday evening I came upon a Free Tibet protest in Union Square, which was peaceful, respectful, and of course, well-regulated by the NYPD. I later learned that it was part of worldwide protest to “commemorate the 51st anniversary of Tibetan National Uprising Day and to show solidarity with a new nonviolent resistance movement gaining momentum in Tibet,” according to Phayul.com.

There had been a march over the Brooklyn Bridge to the U.N. earlier in the day, and the rally I saw was apparently a group of Uigyur students describing how similar their struggle is to the Tibetan struggle, which is interesting

I thought I’d share a few photos.
