Mexican Tibet supporters deliver petition to UN High Commissioner

September 10, 2012

Mexico City, September 7, 2012: Mexican Tibet supporters have delivered a petition to the local office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights urging action on Tibet. The signatures for the petition were collected from people in Morelia, Guadalajara, Puebla, Cuernavaca and Mexico City.

In a separate letter addressed to Mexican Minister of Foreign Relations Patricia Espinosa, Deputy Foreign Minister Maria de Lourdes Aranda, and Undersecretary for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights Ambassador Juan Manuel Gomez Robledo, Pensando en Tibet urged the Mexican Government to make a statement on the human rights situation in Tibet.

The UN Commissioner for Human Rights’ Office in Mexico was established in 2002 as part of a technical cooperation agreement with the Government. Since the office was established, the Government has shown greater political will towards implementing the observations and recommendations of international human rights mechanisms within both the universal and the regional systems.
