“For the past 60 years, my people have suffered greatly under occupation by China. In recent years, Tibetans’ nonviolent protest against China’s repression has taken a devastating turn with over 130 Tibetans lighting themselves on fire to call for freedom and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In spite of their suffering, the Chinese government has only intensified its violent attacks against Tibetans, denying them their most basic human rights.
Growing up I always knew Tibet was unique – His Holiness the Dalai Lama is one of the world’s most popular leaders and our freedom struggle follows in the footsteps of nonviolence giants like Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi.
Now as a Tibet campaigner, I know we can channel this widespread global support into concrete and coordinated action by our governments for Tibet. By speaking in unison, world leaders can pressure China to back away from its most repressive policies in Tibet.
Right now, the Chinese government uses its growing economic influence and political clout to bully the international community into silence on Tibet, threatening and punishing countries who do dare to speak out. China does this because its leaders are deeply fearful of any international criticism of its unjust rule in Tibet.
We have a solution for moving government action for Tibet forward. The best strategy to grab the attention of China’s leaders and compel them to back away from their repressive policies in Tibet is joint action by world governments. Several Tibet groups around the world have been calling for coordinated approach to Tibet – a multilateral solution. By acting together, our governments can secure greater concessions for Tibet while protecting themselves against China’s punitive response.”
