This is David Califa's Message :
about 7 weeks , on the night before the Olympic flame will be lit in
Beijing , at least 100 million people all over the world will light a
candle for a free Tibet . That aggregate flame will be brighter and will
call for freedom in Tibet and in any other place in the world .
- Take part in our Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games. Light a candle for Tibet -
candle , in a hundred million of windows all over the world , is
symbolizing the right of all human beings to self determination ,
freedom of speech , thought , conscience and religious belief ."
Olympic Games in Beijing are a unique opportunity to focus the world's
attention on the annulment of those rights in Tibet and in many other
places in the world.
The message is simple : Every human being
who cares about freedom has a responsibility of lighting a candle. The
act of lighting a candle,
being personal and spiritual , can also be viewed as a vote. Such
massive vote that world leaders will not be able to ignore.
internet is bringing people together and empowering them to act and
effect change. If individual users from all over the world learn to
organize themselves not by country borders, but behind common ideas ,
causes and values they will promote freedom in their own lives .
Our modest objective is to reach 100 million people .
from all over the world have volunteered and turned the web site that
coordinates the action into a true global one . By the end of this week
it will be fully operational in 20 languages , and we promise that they
will have 50 languages before the event .
