The Amnesty International yesterday presented its first-ever “Shine a Light Award” to His Holiness the Dalai Lama at a ceremony held at Carpenter Performing Arts Center of California State University in Long Beach.

LONG BEACH, CA: His Holiness was welcomed in great ovation with over 1000 guests and members of Amnesty International. Ms. Ann Burroughs, a former prisoner of conscience from South Africa, addressed the welcome note.

Mr Larry Cox, the Executive Director of Amnesty International, USA, gave a general idea of the human rights violation in Tibet and the role played by AI. Taking the opportunity the Amnesty had decided to use the occasion of its 50th anniversary to “honor and celebrate those whose lives, words and actions challenge, inspire and move us to never give up, to continue to do what we can, to grow our non-violent actions on behalf of the freedom and dignity that belong to each and every individual human being.”
