Demonstration for the Drepung Monks
On Saturday evening members of Students for a Free Tibet joined the Tibetan Youth UK for a vigil and demonstration outside the Chinese Embassy for the Drepung Monks who were arrested recently during a patriotic re-education campaign at the monastery click here for more information on the situation.
The Demonstration lasted two hours. As the shouting started the lights went off in the offices and the windows were shut. At one point in the evening officials from the embassy were seen hiding in the dark on the roof! The evening ended with a candle light vigil and prayers.
