Taiwan: Walk For Tibet, Taiwan, World Peace and Human Rights


A campaign for Tibet and Taiwan, walk "for World Peace and Human Rights, and Tibetan Independence" will be held in Taiwan to mark the International Human Rights Day. Each year hundreds of thousands of people across the world mark the Day on December 10 by taking part in the anniversary of the Assembly's adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

A press statement issued by the Tibetan NGOs in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan on Thursday (25 Nov), stated that the event will start on December 10th to cover over 250 miles and 10 counties throughout the country and have many opportunities to share our message of world peace, human rights, and the Tibetan struggle for independence.

"I wants to personally request your support for the upcoming walk from the Taipei City Capitol of Taiwan to Kao-hsiung City," said the press release issued by Jigme Norbu, Ambassadors For World Peace.

"I am asking for your support on spreading the news of this walk for our global cause. I would appreciate you linking to our website (, connecting via Facebook, forwarding our email, and sharing the word with your friends.
