Please check out my latest news post for Buddhadharma: The Practitioner’s Quarterly Online. In it, I talk about (and link to) a petition Change.org is currently hosting, which asks President Obama to prevent the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), “a US Federal agency which operates the Voice of America (VOA),” from ceasing VOA’s broadcasts to Tibet. With China’s crackdown on both Tibetan activism and outside media scrutiny increasing all the time, such broadcasts are crucial for Tibetans. Tenzin Wangmo, an executive board member for Students for a Free Tibet who graciously answered my request for a comment (and is pictured to the right), makes this point and helps put the petition into much larger perspective in the post as well. Please do take a look here — and make sure to sign the petition!
