Dhondup Wangchen had just completed filming an extensive series of interviews with ordinary Tibetans who had bravely voiced to camera their true feelings on the upcoming Beijing Olympics and the Chinese occupation of Tibet. The interviews were smuggled out of Tibet at great risk and have been made into this remarkable documentary which has been seen screened in more than 30 countries and which was secretly shown to journalists on the eve of the Beijing Olympics in 2008. People like Dhondup Wangchen and Lhamo Tso need you to speak out for them. Show that you care by attending her talk and learning more ways to help in the release of Dhondup Wangchen. Please spread the word and join us with your friends and family! Don't miss out on this opportunity to watch "Leaving Fear Behind" (running time 30 mins) and a chance for Q&A with Lhamo Tso. LOCATION: Moffitt Library, Room 102, UC Berkeley http://www.berkeley.edu/map/3dmap/3dmap.shtml?moffitt Hosted by UC Berkeley Students for a Free Tibet chapter and UCB Amnesty International
