INDIAN TIBET SUPPORTERS DEMAND HUMAN RIGHTS FOR OCCUPIED TIBET

December 11, 2008

India Tibet Coordination Office
 
New Delhi - 9 December 2008: Tibet Support groups will stage a sit in dharna and demonstration at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on 10th December, the International Human Rights Day. It will start at 3pm and will conclude at 5pm. Similar demonstration and public rallies are being held in other parts of India to condemn the human rights violation by the government, especially the Chinese security agencies inside occupied Tibet.
 
This demonstration is being organized by Core Group for Tibetan Cause, the umbrella organization of all Tibet support group in India. Main organizations that are participating in the New Delhi demonstration include India Tibet Friendship Society, Bharat Tibbat Sahyog Manch, Himalaya Committee for Action on Tibet, Friends of Tibet, Students for a Free Tibet, Himalayan Parivar and Youth Liberation Front for Tibet.
 
At the time of selecting Beijing for 2008 Olympic Games, various international organizations, especially the Olympic Committee has assured the world that this decision would encourage the government of China to improve human rights conditions in China. But we are sad to note that even after the Olympic Games in Beijing, human rights conditions inside Chinese occupied Tibet have, rather, gone from bad to worse.
 
The cultural, religious and civilization identity of the Tibetan nation is being totally destroyed. As a result of illegal occupation of Tibet by People's Republic of China, thousands of Tibetans are condemned to live in exile far away from their homeland. Both of these situations reflect serious denial of human rights to the people of Tibet.
 
Unfortunate events of 1962 when China used occupied Tibet as a launching pad against India, and subsequent developments in later years have proved that the subjugation of Tibet has presented a direct and serious threat to the security of India. The Chinese continue to occupy large territories of India. Chinese aggressive postures and illogical demands on Arunachal Pradesh have only vitiated the atmosphere further. The Indian Tibet support groups believe that the most reasonable solution to this problem is an honorable settlement of Tibetan question through direct negotiation between the representatives of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the government of People's Republic of China.
 
The Dharna will assemble at Jantar Mantar for two hours from 03pm to 05pm.
