Today on Lhakar..
Lhakar Diaries is a blog dedicated to Lhakar, or, "White Wednesday," a non-cooperation movement in Tibet based on non-violent strategy, where ordinary men and women actively resist China's occupation by supporting Tibetan businesses, eat Tibetan food, wear Tibetan clothing, speak Tibetan language and celebrate the Tibetan identity.
We are a team of young Tibetans around the globe, highlighting these examples of civil resistance inside Tibet. Lhakar Diaries serves as a platform to promote similar actions on the outside, showing our solidarity with Tibetans in Tibet. Each Wednesday we share our personal journeys with our essays, artwork, music and exploration of our shared cultural heritage and identity.
