The "Tour of Peace – Marathon for Dialogue" organized by The Tashi Delek Foundation of Caceres and the Casa del Tibet Foundation of Barcelona finished successfully along Europe.

Stops on the route were Barcelona, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Berlin, Wien, Munich, Milan, Geneve, Zurich, Strasburg, Frankfurt and Brussels. The tour passed through European cities in addition to collecting signatures for the SOS Tibet campaign, to be delivered to the European Parliament together with the petition.

On June 17 the delegation of the Tour represented by the Director of Casa del Tibet Foundation of Barcelona Ven. Thubten Wangchen and Director of the Foundation Tashi Delek of Cáceres, Ildefonso Pañero were officially received in the European Parliament of Strasbourg by Thomas Mann leader of the parliamentary subgroup "Friends of Tibet", Deputy Maria Badia of the Socialists, Ignasi Guardans and José Ortuondo Larrea of the Alliance of the Democrats and Liberals of Europe.

Ven. Thubten Wangchen in the name of the Casa del Tibet Foundation of Barcelona presented some 30,000 signatures gathered across the internet and in support of the campaign S0S Tibet for meaningful dialogue between the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader and Hu Jintao.
