On Monday, March 31, thousands of people around the world marched, protested, prayed, chanted, and held solemn vigils in support of the people of Tibet. The events, organized by a network of local, national, and international Tibet groups, brought the Avaaz petition to Chinese embassies and consulates on every continent and caught the attention of the news media from Ireland and Austria to Rio and New Delhi.

Below are pictures from avaaz.org of some of these vigils. They delivered their petition to Chinese embassies in NY and London as well as other cities around the world.
