Dharamsala – Our President, Marco Cappa, took part to the Italian delegation led by Hon. Gianni Vernetti that participated last March 10th to the 53rd Anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising Day. It was the occasion to have a private meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. “It was an incredible emotion – declared Cappa – Being so close to a global and spiritual leader, receving a deep touch of humanity and wisdom.”
Cappa and the other members of the delegation agreed with the Prime Minister of the Tibetans in Exile, Lobsang Sangay, that 2012 should be the Tibet lobby year. They called together for more democracy and freedom in China. Other meetings were held with the members of the Government and Parliament. The Speaker of the Parliament, Penpa Tsering, blessed the help and solidarity offered by this delegation to the Tibetan cause.
