Exiled Tibetans from around the world are gathering in Dharamsala for their largest political conference in nearly 60 years. The Dalai Lama has called for the six-day meeting, which begins Monday, after failing to make progress in negotiations with China. The Tibetan spiritual leader has promised to let everything be on the table and not to make any major pronouncements during the conference
This thread is an open invitation for people – including (actually, especially) exiled Tibetans – to provide updates for us here regarding the meeting throughout the week. If our Tibetan friends (such as Lobsang, Tensin, skylight, The Trapped!, and others) do contribute, please welcome them in the spirit of peace and open dialogue – even if many of us may not agree on history, facts, ideology, or visions for our future.
I personally will not contribute much to this thread – partly because I am here to listen, not to comment – and partly because I will be travelling to Taiwan (visiting family and friends) and Yunnan (as a tourist) over the next 2-3 weeks.
