Please join ICT to send as many messages as possible to Jon Huntsman, the U.S. Ambassador to China
Your help is urgently needed in response to the escalating human rights situation at Kirti Monastery in Ngaba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province.
Tensions have intensified in the area since a 20-year old monk, Phuntsog, set fire to himself and later died on the third anniversary of a major protest in Ngaba (Chinese: Aba) on March 16. According to the latest information from the area, the monastery remains under government lockdown and is currently surrounded by armed troops.
The U.S. State Department expressed its concern in an April 14 statement about the "onerous restrictions on the monks and the general public." For more information on the developing situation, visit ICT's News & Reports home page.
Please add your voice now by sending a message to U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman urging him to take immediate action to press China to de-escalate the situation at Kirti. Thank you!
