We the People of the Bay Area and Alameda support human rights and do not want Alameda to be tainted by the political event, namely, to raise the Flag of the People’s Republic of China on Oct. 1 which is China’s National Day, at Alameda City Hall.
China has illegally occupied Tibet in 1949 and 1950. Over one million Tibetans have died resisting the Chinese flag. Tibetans deserve liberty and justice and wish to stop living under the Chinese police state, which severely oppresses Chinese, Uighurs, and the Tibetan people.
We demand more transparency and accountability to democracy so that Alamedans & the public know about this flag-raising endorsement of China’s dark human rights record.
Recently, 122 Tibetans lost their lives by self-immolation to urge the public to help Free Tibet and Return the Dalai Lama home to Tibet.
The public should know the true meaning of the raising of the Flag of the People’s Republic of China.
Join San Francisco Team Tibet in a daytime rally and protest against the raising of the Red Flag of China. In the evening there will be a candlelight vigil for Tibet.
The rally and evening vigil will take place at Alameda City Hall located at 2263 Santa Clara Avenue, Alameda. The rally will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday. The vigil will also be held on Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m.
