Text of the Petition:

President Barack Obama
The White House
Washington DC
USA

Dear President Obama,

Your Presidency has bought to the world a ray of
hope and a new open style of government. Your are
looked upon by people all over the world to lead
us into a new era of peace and prosperity as the
head of the most powerful nation in the free world.

We the signatories of this petition are very
concerned by the gross abuses of human rights in
Tibet that are well documented by the United Nations and many NGO’s.

The stubbornness of the Chinese government in
accusing the Dalai Lama of seeking independence
for his country while at the same time refusing
to have meaningful peace talks without any
preconditions is only increasing to the tensions
in Tibet and to more human rights abuses.

We are certain that the solution to this deadlock
is that as leader of the Free World, you
host,  direct face-to-face talks in Washington
between His Holiness The Dalai Lama, a man of peace, and President Hu Jintao.

We also request you secure the release of H.H.
The Panchen Lama Gedhun Choeky Nyima who has been
incarcerated by the Chinese regime along with his
whole family for over 14 years and since he was only 6 years old.

We believe that this meeting will be very useful
to finding an everlasting solution to the plight
of the Tibetan people and save Tibet and its ancient culture from extinction.

Human rights must be given priority over any
economical interests but having said this, the
solution of this problem that is now over five
decades old will be also very beneficial to the
world economy, as it will ease many tensions.

We are quite sure that as soon as you meet His
Holiness The Dalai Lama you will feel the need to act.

Yours sincerely,
