This afternoon.

Some members of Ireland’s Tibetan community hold a vigil to mark the 58th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising of 1959 and the 9th anniversary of the Uprisings of 2008, when thousands of Tibetans rose up against China’s occupation of Tibet.

Tibetans and supporters mark March 10 each year to show solidarity with Tibetans inside Tibet and to honour and support the resistance to Chinese rule that continues to this day.



“We’re very excited to confirm that His Holiness the Dalai Lama will visit Glastonbury on Sunday, June 28. The Tibetan spiritual leader is coming as a guest of the festival as part of a four-day UK visit. The key themes throughout the visit will be the promotion of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s message of compassion, non-violence and the oneness of humanity.”

Some of those who won’t be at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service this week.

From (top) journalists, being warned they’ll lose accreditation if they live up to a stereotype; Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (centre) with then Taoiseach John Bruton won’t be attending due to high travel costs.; The Dalai Lama is unable to attend as “logistically it’s impossible at this time.”
