Meeting November 1

Our next meeting will be next Tuesday night at 7pm in KT 247. We will be discussing the concert and such. A discussion on the campus movement that will be taken on November 3rd for Bombardier Day of Action will take place as well. Don't forget that Monday, October 31st, we will be chalking the sidewalk outside of Neff and Kettler to promote the concert!



Well, we just finished Windhorse and it was truly moving! Sara and I give it 2 thumbs up! I, personally, suggest to all to watch this movie. I cannot think of words to describe the utter animosity you will feel towards the Chinese Government and their involvement with Tibet. This is a must see.

Empowering and Thoughtful Quotes

Is Tibet lost forever?
No, a thousand times no.
Tibet will not die because there
is no death for the human spirit.
Jayaprakash Narayan

Our collective will to resist what
is unjust is like a fire that can-
not be put out.
Palden Gyatso
Tibetan monk
imprisoned for 33 years

In nonviolence the masses have a weapon
which enables a child, a woman, or even a
decrepit old man, to resist the mightiest
government successfully. If your spirit is
strong, mere lack of physical strength
ceases to be a handicap.

If you are neutral in situations of
injustice, you have chosen the side
of the oppressor. If an elephant has
his foot on the tail of a mouse and
you say you are neutral, the mouse
will not appreciate your neutrality.
Bishop Desmond Tutu

Meeting in KT 247

We will be showing the new movie, Windhorse, which we have yet to see!
Refreshments and pizza will be provided as well as a short question and answer period following the film. Hope to see you there!

Just a reminder!

Besides our normally scheduled meetings (which we will begin to post here on the blog), we will also be posting reminders of upcoming events. The biggest one on the calendar is the Tibetan Freedom Concert 2005! It will be on November 5th @ 7pm, in Neff Recital Hall. So far, 3 bands are scheduled to rock, so put this on your calendar and we'll see you there!

The Low Down on SFT IPFW

SFT IPFW is corrordinated in Fort Wayne, IN on the campus of Indiana University Purdue University of Fort Wayne. Our chapter has been in existance since 2000 and strives to educate the community around us of the plight of the Tibetan people.
The current president and head of opperations is Sara Conrad and the Vise-president is Michelle Staller. Together, sadly, they make up this tiny chapter. However, we are sure that membership will grow this semester (epecially due to the Mid-West Conference held in Chicago ealier this month). As our membership blossoms, we will be sure to add these people to our blog!
