According to The International Campaign for Tibet,

On Dec. 7, 2004, The US Senate passed a resolution by unanimous consent today calling for the release of respected religious teacher Tenzin Delek Rinpoche and other Tibetan political prisoners. Senate Resolution 483 stated that: "The government of the People's Republic of China is in violation of international human rights standards by detaining and mistreating Tibetans who engage in peaceful activities to protest China's repression of Tibetans or promote the preservation of a distinct Tibetan identity, The Government of the People's Republic of China should, as a gesture of goodwill and in order to promote human rights, immediately release all political prisoners, including Tenzin Delek.

In Dharmamsala, Wangden captured these images of a vigil and hunger strike by Tibetans living in exile.
