UBUNTU - TIBET FREEDOM DAY EVENT

"To my dear friend His Holiness the Dalai Lama, let me say: I stand with you. You define non-violence and compassion and goodness."
- Archbishop Tutu Statement [Wednesday, March 26, 2008]

On South African Freedom Day, we are holding the UBUNTU Peace Festival to remember those in the world who are still denied basic freedoms, with focus on Tibet.

The Dalai Lama, has urged support from the international community, just as global pressure contributed to the democratization of South Africa .
