On Thursday 3 November we celebrated our 10th anniversary once again but this time the event was in London. This was a chance to bring together old friends and new, including some of the people who were instrumental in setting up Tibet Watch.
Our event venue was St Ethelburga's, a medieval church in the heart of London's financial district. Originally built in the 15th century, it was one of few City churches to escape the Fire of London and also survived the Second World War before being almost completely destroyed by an IRA bomb in 1993. Ten years later it was rebuilt and reopened as a centre for peace and reconciliation - a perfect setting for Tibet Watch.
A lot of people have worked very hard over the last ten years and the nature of our work has meant that much of that work has been done quietly, even anonymously. Many people who are, or have been, associated with Tibet Watch still need to remain anonymous so we still can't thank everyone by name. Nevertheless, we do want to extend thanks and appreciation to everyone who has been involved and contributed in so many different ways over the years - staff, volunteers, board members, supporters, donors, people in partner organisations and individual Tibetans who have provided information or testimony.
