Protest against Sydney Uni Dalai Lama ban

The University of Sydney has withdrawn its support for a talk by the Dalai Lama - a global icon of peace and human rights.

The only explanation for this shocking decision is that the University has caved into pressure from China.

We can't let the Chinese government and the University of Sydney's administration get away with censoring the Dalai Lama's message at one of Australia's most prestigious universities.

Please join us this Wednesday to protest the University's lack of respect for academic integrity and human rights.
