Madison SFT goes to San Francisco!

Most of the members of the Madison chapter of Students for a Free Tibet were in San Francisco as the official Beijing Olympic torch made its only stop in North America.

We had a great time and had time to do some interviews with local Madison media back home:

This drew local media attention to the plight of the Tibetans. Nawa Dolker, member of Students for a Free Tibet, was interviewed by WORT 89.9 FM.
