Tibetan Protest

Couldn't think of a better way to spend my vacation... I think I could have shot better, but this has taught me what to do next time in a similar situation.

these pics are amazing, during spring break I went to NYC and there was a big protest to Free Tibet there too. There wasn't any police dragging protesters though.

WOW Thao. These images are intense. I wonder if there is a way to get these out to some orgs working for the struggle - maybe they can be used somewhere?? I'm sure you've looked, or sent them off to papers and such, but the could really truly support the struggle in a real way by more people seeing these images.

Yes, I am glad that we are all coming together to speak up against the events in Tibet... "silence implies consent" and I for one chose to dedicate my second post on my first ever blog to that particular issue.
