Ask your Congressperson to cosponsor Tibet resolution

ICT Action Alert

If you live in the United States, please send the following message to your Representatives and urge them to cosponsor House Resolution 609, which:

• mourns the death of Tibetans who have self-immolated and deplores repressive policies targeting Tibetans;
• calls on the Chinese government to suspend religious control regulations, reassess religious and security policies in Tibet, and resume a dialogue with the Dalai Lama’s representatives;
• calls on the Chinese government to release all persons that have been arbitrarily detained, including Kirti monks, and allow unrestricted access to journalists, foreign diplomats, and international organizations to Tibet;
• reaffirms the unwavering friendship between Americans and the people of Tibet; and
• calls on the State Department of State to establish a consulate in Lhasa, Tibet, and to not permit China to open further diplomatic missions in the United States until the Chinese government agrees to open a U.S. consulate in Lhasa.

House Resolution 609 was introduced by Reps. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and George Miller (D-CA). It is identical to a bipartisan Senate resolution (S. Res. 356), which passed the Senate unanimously on March 29.

Thank you for taking action for Tibet and the Tibetan people!
