Standing for the peaceful liberation from oppression world wide!

10th March commemorates the Tibetan uprisings of 1959 & 2008 and honours all those who have courageously stood up to try and free their land from oppression, including the 153 Tibetans who have self-immolated in the last 9 years.

On uprising day this year the Tibetan flag was carried, climbing on skins, from 3,032 to 3,456 metres on La Grande Motte, Espace Kili in the French Alps.   (On 10th March 2014 it had been flown from this highest point ,on ski and snowboard, down to the lowest point in the area, 1,550 metres at Les Brevieres.   Then on 10th March 2016 it had been carried up again on a marathon climb from 1,550 to 3,032 metres.)  So this now completes its uprising journey!

Most of the climb this year was in blizzard and white-out conditions. Heavy snow caused skins to repeatedly peel off. Uncomfortable... But it's important to put in effort for our beliefs to help effect changes in the world.

The sun did eventually appear - as always...
Gathering at the top - with thanks to supporters Dave, Drew, Debs, Jim, Trev and Miles
