In early October Marija returned from her â€˜Trek for Tibet, an extraordinary mountain adventure in the Indian Himalayas, learning about the inspiring culture of Tibet and culminating in a meeting with the Dalai Lama. On October 27th Melburnians will have a chance to hear stories and see images from Marijas inspiring journey at a special fundraising dinner. Marija will be joined by Dr. Simon Bradshaw, Campaigns Coordinator for the Australia Tibet Council, who will be talking about the culture and global ecological significance of the Tibetan Plateau.
With the eyes of the world on China as it gears up to host the Olympics in Beijing, 2008 will be a crucial year in the struggle for a Free Tibet.
