WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
calls upon the People's Republic of China to put an end to its repression in Tibet as demonstrated by the ongoing unrest
I am writing this letter to draw your kind attention to the tense situation in Tibet due to the Chinese authorities’ increased restriction in the wake of a series of self-immolation by Tibetans in Ngaba Tibetan region.
These acts by Tibetans to self-immolate are signs of increasing sense of desperation on account of continued denial of freedom by the Chinese government, including in matters of religious freedom. The situation is certainly made worse by the lack of any positive response by China to His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s effort to find a genuine and lasting solution to the Tibetan issue for the mutual benefit of the Tibetans and Chinese people.
I would like urge you to immediately call on the Chinese Government to withdraw all restrictive measures in Tibetan areas.
The above petition is created by Mr. Tashi K from Seattle,WA on october 12
