For those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area who would like to show
support, here's a quick update on the case of imprisoned Tibetan
filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen, who made the documentary "Leaving Fear Behind," which is embedded above. Dhondup suffers from Hepatitis B and was denied medical treatment. Wangchen and a collaborator who is a Tibetan monk are in prison in China for the crime of making this film.
It documents the opinions of ordinary Tibetan people about China's
communist government, and the exiled Dalai Lama, in the year leading up
to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. They interviewed 108 Tibetan people; that
number is a sacred number in Tibetan Buddhism.
It also touches on the problem of HBV in China.
