I want readers to share this photograph and interesting news that a Tibet supporter in Europe, Manfred Manera sent me about His Holiness’ successful visit to Venice.
“The recent visit of H.H. in Venice was a great success, beyond my expectations. He was granted with the Venetian honorary citizenship. All the local politicians, from the major Cacciari to the other side of the political spectrum they all talked only about independence of Tibet and right of self-determination for the Tibetan people. No hint about the middle-way or autonomy. And His Holiness seemed pleased about it, as he was when visited the Marciana library and found very old maps and documents of the Middle Ages referring of Tibet as an independent country.”
(IMPORTANT NOTICE.
