Reflecting upon current global political transformation, we are reminded
that the world is constantly changing and nothing is permanent. Who
could have imagined such a wave of protests would sweep the regimes in
Tunisia, Egypt and others, which are till recently ruled by notorious
dictators who suddenly fell like a house of cards. But it all started
with street vendors in Tunisia standing up and crying out for their
basic rights. They paved the path of freedom for the rest of their
country.

Tibetan calendar completes its circle every 360 days, and we have a
saying, “Every 60 day’s history repeats itself”. In the 1940’s
when the most of the former colonial nations were gaining freedom from
European rulers, we lost our freedom to the Chinese government. 1.2
million Tibetans died as a direct result of the invasion, followed by
ongoing repression, and cultural and environmental destruction on the
Tibetan plateau.

We have been given a second chance. The revolutions in the Middle East
have reminded the world that change is possible, that dictators don’t
last forever. The Chinese regime is the largest dictatorship in the
world. We Tibetans and supporters should all unite and lead our struggle
for freedom. At this critical juncture, doing nothing and merely
expecting some divine intervention will be the most risky thing.

Therefore, some of us (Tibetans & friends) have shown the courage to start a
PEACE MARCH from New York to Washington, D.C, in the peak summer with temperatures over
100F. This will take approximately ten days to complete.
