AROUND 300 people protested in London in pouring rain on Sunday for Tibetan rights. They were demanding the government takes a stance against the persecution of the Tibetan people by the Chinese authorities since 1959. Comedian Mark Thomas spoke of how it is important to join together in the fight against oppression, and how world leaders are unwilling to take a stance because of economic talks with China.
