[Toronto] International Human Rights Day: Rally at Chinese Consulate
December 9, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
For International Human Rights Day 2016 the Canadian Tibetan Association of Ontario, Tibetan Women’s Association of Ontario, Regional Tibetan Youth Congress Toronto, Chushi Gangdruk Society of Canada and Students for a Free Tibet Canada have prepared a rally at the Chinese Consulate to hold the Chinese government accountable for the decades of human rights abuses they have committed on Tibet and the Tibetan people.
For the purpose of protesting on day when the consulate is open, we have decided to host the rally on December 9th instead. Join us at 2pm in front of the Chinese consulate to express solidarity with the people of Larung Gar, the largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the world. The authorities started the demolitions in July and have not stopped since.
We will have speakers from various human rights NGOs, placards and banners prepared for the rally and a candle light vigil to end off the night.
All are welcome!
