Urge your Representative to support Tibet!

If you live in the United States, please send the following message to your Representatives and urge them to sign the McGovern-Wolf letter. The deadline for signatures is Wednesday, December 19, so we need to act fast. The letter asks President Obama to:

  • take a leading role with partner nations on measures to bring near-term improvements in the human rights situation in Tibet;

  • employ the recent statement on Tibet by UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay as a tool for coordinated pressure with the Chinese government on the Tibetan issue;

  • promote dialogue between Chinese officials and Tibetan leaders in order to achieve a negotiated solution, and

  • nominate a Secretary of State who will champion the Tibet issue.

With the intensifying crackdown in response to the increasing number of self-immolations in Tibet, we ask your help in gaining Congressional support for this timely and urgent message to the President.

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

     

Respond to Tibet’s Desperate Cries for Help
Sign Letter to President Obama


[ Excerpt ]

Please join us on a letter to President Obama asking that he make Tibet a top priority for U.S. advocacy and ensure that the next Secretary of State will also be a champion of Tibet. The situation inside Tibet is worsening, and China’s response is to increase its crackdown on basic human rights and freedoms (http://rendezvous.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/04/tibets-desperate-toll-keeps-climbing/). The United States must exercise greater leadership with its international partners to bring near-term improvements in the human rights situation in Tibet and in pressing the Chinese government to respect human rights and the preservation of Tibetan religion, language and culture.

Sincerely,
James P. McGovern       Frank R. Wolf
Member of Congress      Member of Congress
