Portland Tibetans Occupy Canada

A busload of Portland-area Tibetans traveled last week to Vancouver, B.C., to protest outside the Chinese consulate. The protests follow a series of self-immolations in Tibet, which the Dalai Lama has blamed on Chinese government repression.

"Seldom do we hear of such tragic issues at Occupy Wall Street or Occupy Portland," Jampa N. Lathsang, a Portland real estate agent and activist, writes in an email to WW, "although the 99% of us do have a very genuine issue."

What it lacked in numbers, it made up for in what the wonks call message discipline.

Here are a few pictures from the protest in BC.
