On Wednesday September 18, 2013, Illuminate Tibet staged a silent protest in Melbourne's CBD, to shine a light on the political situation in Tibet. Largely ignored by Western media, Tibetans have been living under oppression, or forced into exile, for over half a century.

While many of our participants were made aware of our event through social media, passers-by also opted to stand in solidarity with us, and hold a candle for Tibet, once they were made aware of the issue.
