To do in SF - Tibet rally on April 8, Richard Gere, Desmond Tutu

Pro-Tibetan human rights activists (who also erected the billboard shown above) are organizing a rally in San Francisco
this Tuesday, April 8, to be led by Richard Gere, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Tibetan community leaders.
As China prepares to host the Olympics in August, the government is conducting the worst crackdown in Tibet since
the 1960s Cultural Revolution. Come show your support for the Tibetan and Chinese people on the eve of the Beijing
Olympic torch passing through San Francisco - the only stop in North America.
Where: United Nations Plaza, at Market & Hyde, near Civic Center BART Rally & Speeches 6:00pm
Culture / Music 7:15pm
Candle Light Vigil 8:00pm
