Vigil Held outside Bath Abbey for Panchen Lama

Sunday 25th April

A dignified vigil was held by over 20 supporters outside Bath Abbey to mark the 21st birthday of Gedhun Chokyi Nyima, the Panchen Lama of Tibet, who was abducted by the Chinese authorities 15 years ago. 

Nearly 30 messages were received from supporters and displayed at the vigil. The messages, for Gedhun and Chinese Minister Du Qinglin, were written on colourful windhorses and strung together to flutter in the wind. The windhorse messages will now be posted to Minister Du.

£90 was collected during the Vigil that will be sent to Tibet Earth Quake appeal.

Other Vigils were held in Manchester and London outside the Chinese Embassy.  See
Tibet Society  for details
