Mexico: On 26 April 2023, during an Ordinary Session of the Mexican Congress, Deputy Salvador Caro Cabrera and Deputy Inés Parra Juárez rose from their seats and displayed the Tibetan national flag for about 20 minutes at the time they shouted “Free Tibet” The action was given in response to the presence in the Parliamentary Area of the new Ambassador of China in Mexico.
The two Protestant Deputies are founding members of the Grupo de Legisladoras y Legisladores Amigos del Tíbet en México, which is made up of 19 Legislators belonging to five political parties and started its functions in November 2022. Several of these Legislators travelled last March to Dharamshala, in northern India, headquarters of the Central Tibetan Administration, to participate in the commemoration of the 64th Anniversary of the National Uprising Uprising Day. The presence of the Group, as well as its solidarity demonstrations in favour of the Tibetan cause and the future reincarnation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, were received with the greatest blessing and gratitude by all Tibetans.
