Losar - A Day of Mourning in Tibet; Lhadon reports from Hong Kong

LOSAR: A DAY OF MOURNING IN TIBET
Tibetans inside Tibet and around the world held a day of mourning yesterday, the first day of Losar, the Tibetan New Year, canceling traditional celebrations in honor of the more than two hundred Tibetans killed and the thousands imprisoned by Chinese forces in the past year.

Tibetans' powerful civil disobedience campaign in the face of China's military clampdown has been widely covered by the world's media, including on the cover of the New York Times. Check out the coverage on SFT's Tibet News section: http://www.studentsforafreetibet.org/news
