SFT-UMass is joining the campaign for Ngwang Choepel. Ngwang was a Fulbright Scholar in Middlebury College where he studied ethnomusicology. He went to Tibet to preserve his native culture on film. He was detained and sentenced to 18 years in a Chinese prison for filming Tibetan music and dance. To learn more about Ngwang and to fill out an easy electronic petition, click HERE.
We will be tabling at the Campus Center concourse in an effort to gather signatures.
On Tuesday, February 16th, we will be showing a 30 minute film about Ngwang, which will be followed by a letter-writing for Ngwang's release. Everyone is welcomed. 5:30 in room 902 @ the Campus Center.
