Massive Vigil at Parliament Hill on November 02

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2011) - Regional Tibetan Youth Congress and 5 NGOs in Toronto is organizing a massive global peace vigil at Parliament Hill, Ottawa on Nov 02, 2011, to call for multi-lateral, diplomatic intervention from world leaders to support the voice from Tibet. Around 10 Buses and over 25 car loads of Tibetans from Toronto alone will be participating in this Global Peace Vigil. Large number of MPs, Senators, leaders of Chinese pro-democracy Movement (FDC), China Rights network and Amnesty International, are expected to speak at the Vigil.

Speaking to the group of Tibet supporters, Ms Trinlay Choezom, General Secretary of RTYC appealed to all the human rights activists to call on the United Nations and the world leaders, who consider human rights as their core value to break their silence to prevent further loss of lives inside Tibet by calling on China in the forthcoming G 20 summit, where President Hu Jintao is expected, to condemn its repressive measures across Tibet and to allow an independent investigation team to assess the escalating critical situation in Ngaba County, Kirti Monastery and initiate measures to de-escalate the situation.

Mr. Kunga Tsering, Coordinator of the Global Peace Vigil appeals to all those who supports the concept of Human Right as Universal, to join the Vigil at Parliament Hill on Nov 02 at 9am. He said "Let's not forget the pain and courage of those young Monks and Nun who scarified their life to achieve their dream of a FREE TIBET with return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Potala Palace in Tibet".
