Dalai Lama Parliamentary Reception Today

Politicians, ambassadors, religious and community leaders will attend a reception in the Mural Hall, Parliament House in Canberra today, Greens Senator Bob Brown said this morning

“It is a wonderful honour for Australia that the Dalai Lama is making time is his busy schedule to visit Parliament House, our seat of democracy and freedom” Senator Brown said.

“The Dalai Lama’s Australian tour has been a massive hit with the public who have flocked in their tens of thousands to see him in Geelong, Melbourne and now Canberra.

“There is enormous public support in Australia for freedom for Tibet,” Senator Brown said.

Senator Brown, with Vicky Bourne, is hosting the reception.
