Not to be to critical, as long as the motivation is sincere, people do what ever they can, location, etc being taken into account. As long as pure drops of water fall into the bucket, one day the bucket will be filled.

Hats Oof to you. Nicely written. I have so much faith and respect for those freedom singers from Tibet. They put their lives on the line and speak their hearts out unlike group of mushrooming self styled so called Tibetan artist "performers" and singers in exile communities forcing for recognition and monetary gain without doing much.

No greater than He. Perhaps if a compilation of songs reflecting all the aspects of Tibets tragic situation , put to a few simple chords, could be put on a tape or cd and distributed to the active protesters, maybe at cost only. With a portable machine and song sheets for distribution to the passing public we could sing our way into the offices and departments of all those who have pledged some action, yet to be seen. Singing would be different to shouting. Standing outside various Chinese embassies singing our hearts out would probably catch them off guard. Just a suggestion.
