Vancouver's Tibetan Community Demanding an End to the Looting of Tibet Protesters Tell Investors to Stay Out of Tibet

the Convention Centre which was hosting the Vancouver Resource
Investment Conference to demand an end to the involvement of the

resources are for Tibetans" and "Stop the mining in Tibet." The
protestors also engaged investors in discussion as part of their
education campaign to hopefully get the message across to them that
human rights violation is risky business.

in Tibet, perhaps the most significant example of which is China Gold
