Tibetan Protest in Los Angeles against Chinese Regime

by Namgyal Kyulo Wednesday, Mar. 19, 2008 at 9:09 AM 310-895-3259

Southern California Tibetan Community and Supporter groups condemn recent killing and brutal crackdown of peaceful tibetan demonstrators in Tibet.

Tibetan Protest in L...

Communist China invades Tibet in 1949 and gradually occupied Tibet. On March 10th, 1959 historic Tibetan National Uprising movement started demanding China to Leave TIBET. However the communist china brutally crackdown the Tibetan national Uprising Movement and killed thousands of Tibetans. Since then China killed 1.2 millions Tibetans. China had destroyed more than six thousands Monasteries. Since 1959 Tibet remains an occupied part of china.

In the last few days thousands of monks, nuns, and lay Tibetans put their lives on the line by protesting against Chinese rule in Tibet. Hundreds have reportedly been killed. Despite knowing the grim outcome the protest spread widely into different parts of Tibet, including universities and major monasteries.

We strongly condemn Chinese regime for such inhuman action. We appeal representative from international organizations to investigate the real cause of the protests and actual situation in Tibet.

• We demand Chinese regime to immediately stop illegal and rampant killing of peaceful demonstrator in Tibet and immediately release all political and religious prisoners in Tibet.

• We also demand Chinese regime to release Panchen Lama, the youngest Tibetan religious prisoner in the world.

• We demand Chinese regime to immediately release Rugye Ada and all others that were imprisoned for expressing their views in August 2007. This clearly shows abuse of freedom of expression in Tibet. We appeal international court of Justice to investigate this incident.

• We demand Chinese regime to respect human right in Tibet, China, Sudan, Burma, and across the world. We demand to china to stop selling weapons in Sudan.

• We demand Chinese regime to improve cultural and religious freedom in Tibet

• We demand Chinese regime to immediately stop population transfer and ethnic cleansing policy in TIBET.

• We appeal American brothers and sisters to boycott 2008 Olympic in Beijing.

China clearly do not deserve to host 2008 Olympic game. China is doing what is contrary to the principles of Olympic spirit, i.e., democracy, freedom and respect for human rights. We appeal American brothers and sisters to boycott the Beijing 2008 Olympic game. We request the whole world to support the TRUTH and the TRUTH is the TIBET was an independent country and China should leave TIBET now.

Major events around the Globe:

Return March to Tibet: One hundred marchers will be leaving Dharamsala on March 10th for six months duration and are expected to arrive at Tibet’s border on the eve of the Olympics opening ceremonies in Beijing on August 8th, 2008. It is organized by the Tibetan Youth Congress, Tibetan Women’s Association, Gu-Chu-Sum ex-political prisoners’ movement, National Democratic Party of Tibet and SFT India.

Tibetan Freedom Torch: A Tibetan freedom torch was lit in Mt.Olympia, Greece as a symbol of the true spirit and meaning of the Olympic. It will travel around 50 cities worldwide to shed light on Chinese Human Rights abuses and atrocities in Tibet. The freedom torch relay will pass through Los Angles on April 15th 2008.

China’s Torch Relay: China’s Olympic torch relay will be passing through Tibet, and to the top of Mt.Everest passing London, Paris, SF and Delhi. China is using the Olympics to gain Global acceptance and to legitimize its rule in Tibet. The torch will reach San Francisco on April 9th, Tibetans and supporters from all over the US will be there to protest. Supporters are requested to join.

For more information on events planned on April 8th and 9th at SF.
