"China: Get out of Tibet" demonstrations held (today)



Today, in North Arlington VA, as I was driving I saw a small demonstration with signs “China: Get out of Tibet” and various flags and placards, walking on the north side of Lee Highway (US 29) toward the District of Columbia. I took some quick photos that will process later (added here 4/17).

This website has a downloadable poster.



I could not find specific media reports of a Pro-Tibet demonstration in the DC area today, but participants in the march may know and be able to tell us where in a comment. Here is an article from Asia News dated March 10, 2009, “Demonstrations around the world to mark Tibet’s uprising,” link here.
