TIBETAN LOSAR CANCELED IN HONOR OF TIBETAN FREEDOM FIGHTERS




The NY times reported yesterday that China has stepped up security forces in several Tibetan cities. Most Tibetans world-wide are boycotting Losar, the traditional Tibetan New Year, to mark the occasion.

On this Sunday's radio show for Write Action at Wvew.org [107.7 FM] radio I will be featuring Tibetan poetry and song reading from such contemporary poets as Woeser, Tsering Wangmo Dhompo, Tenzin Tsundue and others. Some attention & homage will be paid to traditional poets from the past.
