Dear friends near San Francisco,

Tomorrow night, a coalition of Tibet groups have organized a rally and vigil at the United Nations Plaza on Market Street in San Francisco.

If you're free tomorrow night, please do head over to the event! Details are below.

Here is the message from the International Campaign for Tibet:

Join Richard Gere, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Tibetan leaders and other special guests for a historic rally and candle light vigil in support of the Tibetan people and their struggle for basic human rights.

As China prepares to host the Olympics in August, the government is conducting the worst crackdown in Tibet since the 1960s Cultural Revolution.

Come show your support for the Tibetan and Chinese people on the eve of the Beijing Olympic torch passing through San Francisco - the only stop in North America.
