India should revisit its Tibet policy

December 10, 2007

Press Release emailed in by ITSN South Asia

By 'The Core Group For Tibetan Cause'

New Delhi-8 December 2007: Tibet Support groups will stage a mass
demonstration at Parliament in New Delhi on 10th December, the
International Human Rights Day. Similar demonstration and public rallies
are being held in other parts of India at the same time to mark the
conclusion of 'Intensive Year of Support to Tibetan Cause', which
started early this year.

This claim of demonstration and public rallies is being organized to
impress upon the Indian government to review its self defeating Tibet
policy and adopt a reasonable and self respecting posture on the last
surviving colony in a civilized world. All Tibetan support groups of
India expect that the government of India should stop appeasing the
Chinese colonial masters of Tibet who are occupying Tibet illegally
since 1951. We want to remind the Indian government that a free and
independent Tibet buffer between India and China is the only lasting
guarantee for peace on India's North borders and lasting security for
its neighbours.

We also demand that the Government of India should use its influence on
the Chinese government to find a peaceful solution to the Tibetan
problem through a dialogue. In view of the high stature that His
Holiness the Dalai Lama has gained at international levels as the
greatest symbol of peace and compassion, the Government of India should
seriously think of honouring him with Bharat Ratna, India's highest
civil honour.

This demonstration is being organized by Core Group for Tibetan Cause,
the umbrella organization of all Tibet support group in India. Main
organizations who are participating in the New Delhi demonstration
include All India Parliamentary Forum for Tibet, India Tibet Friendship
Society, Bharat Tibbat Sahyog Manch, Himalaya Committee for Action on
Tibet, Friends of Tibet - India, Himalayan Parivar and Youth Liberation
Front for Tibet.

The demonstrations will assemble at Jantar Mantar at 11am and will then
proceed to the Parliament.
