Many of you may have heard, or seen reports in the media, about the incident that took place at STARTTS last week, where two of our staff members were attacked outside our Carramar office. Everyone here was obviously very shocked and upset about the incident, and concerned for the welfare of their colleagues. The good news is that both women are now doing very well, and are set to make a full recovery.
The Tibetan Community in Australia will commence the Chigdril (Unity) Cup on 2 April, the seventh such event since the first tournament commenced in Canberra in 2009.
This year’s tournament will take place in Sydney and see men’s and women’s teams from Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle, Brisbane, and the Blue Mountains compete in soccer and basketball tournaments.
Given the large number of Tibetan Australians working in front line capacities in health care and aged care, this year’s tournament is dedicated to them and their work in keeping Australia safe from Covid-19.
Brisbane based Grammy Award nominee Tenzin Choegyal will cap off the event and perform on the final day.
The aim of these games is to provide Tibetans, especially the youth, with an opportunity to meet each other and rejoice in their shared identity as Tibetans and common purpose of continuing the Tibetan struggle.
