China violating the Human Rights of Tibet

DECEMBER TEN is International Human Rights Day, a day set aside to recognise the inherent rights of every individual and to take action for those who have been denied their rights. I bring to your kind notice the following:
 
The situation inside Tibet remains critical as Chinese authorities continue to intensify their crackdown, denying Tibetans even their most basic human rights. The United Nations committee against torture recently found that there is a ’deepened climate of fear in Tibet’ and expressed grave concern over ’longstanding reports of torture, beatings, shackling and other abusive treatment, in particular to Tibetan monks and nuns.
 
Chinese armed forces continue to patrol the streets of cities and towns across Tibet, propaganda efforts have been stepped up in monasteries and nunneries, Tibetans continue to be arbitrarily arrested, and thousands remain missing or detained.
 
On this Human Rights Day, take action to end China’s brutal crackdown and join us in highlighting the courage and determination of Tibetans inside Tibet, who have taken incredible risks to resist the Chinese rule. Following the Chinese government’s announcement this month that it ’will never make a concession’ on the Tibet issue. In the lead up to the 50th anniversary, now is the time to redouble our efforts to gain political support for the Tibetan cause by lobbying our government representatives to take action for Tibet.
 
It’s needless to add that these exercises are in India’s interests.
