Tibet activists to talk

Two representatives of a pro-Tibet activist group will speak at the Nevada County Library at 4 p.m. Saturday.

Kunga, president of the San Francisco chapter of the Tibetan Youth Congress, and Dhondup Tsering, secretary, will present the background of the ongoing crisis in Tibet. They will also describe economic action against China as a way of pursuing freedom for “the roof of the world.” A local group, Tibet Action, will show a video on Tibetan resistance to Chinese occupation.

The Tibetan Youth Congress was founded in 1970 and now has more than 15,000 members worldwide. Besides working for Tibetan independence, the group has spurred democratic reforms within the Tibetan community in exile.

The presentation is free to the public. For information, call 272-8142.
