In this edition of the Listening Lounge (airing at 7 p.m. on March 24), we learn more about Tibet.
In Honk for Tibet (by Todd Melby), we hear from pro-Tibetan protesters in Minneapolis. There, we meet Teinzin Dadon, an 18-year-old high school student. Dadon's father escaped from Tibet three decades ago. After arriving in India, he made his way to the United States. Today, Dadon shouts from a bridge in Minneapolis, asking drivers to support her father and all Tibetans.
Also on the program, Tibetan Uprising: The Meaning of March 10 and Willing for Trouble: Profile of Tibetan Poet & Freedom Fighter Tenzin Tsundue. This story was produced by The Tibetan Connection, a one-hour radio program that airs on KPFK in Los Angeles.
