A diffrent video view of Tibet

What’s going on in Tibet is an interesting view of our own society's - this video highlights a valued view you wont hear in the western media. We in the rich world romanticize far away peasants while repressing those closer to home. Shorly a discussen point, this video was watched more than a million and half times and has more that 100K comments and rated nearly 20,000 times at 4/5 must be a strong popular feeling out there…

We have been extending MIRO the last year - we have a version at you can install - backup your channels if you install it over the old version of MIRO as it will over right them.

We have simplified the interface and added some extra functions to the UI, the back end is all standard MIRO. It comes with 15 outreach environmental and social change channels installed and a channel guide (work in progress) offering another 20-30 channels.
