17th Annual Tibet Day

Congressional Recognition among Highlights of Bay Area Friends of Tibet's Tibetan Cultural Celebration

SAN FRANCISCO, CA., October 26, 2002 – Bay Area Friends of Tibet (BAFoT) received congressional recognition at Fort Mason Conference Center by the San Francisco waterfront at its 17th Annual Tibet Day. Though by some attendee’s accounts the city’s largest peace rally held downtown the same day to stop an apparent impending U.S.-led military action against Iraq, cut into the expected attendance, the long-planned Oct. 26 event’s turnout was one of the best ever in the organization’s history.
