As the number of Tibetans to self-immolate in protest of Chinese occupation surpasses 50, the International Tibet Network is encouraging supporters to take political action to bring an end to the crisis.
Earlier this month, Congressmen James McGovern and Frank Wolf sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, proposing cooperation with other countries to create a plan to get the Chinese government to improve the situation in Tibet. You can read their letter here, and you can click here to send an email to 10 world leaders, urging them to work together to put pressure on China.
“Together, we can make a difference and change the political landscape for Tibet,” said Alison Reynolds, executive director of the International Tibet Network. “Together, we can help Tibetans realize their dreams for freedom and for the return of His Holiness to Tibet.”
Reynolds is also urging supporters to spread the word about the campaign by visiting its “Tell A Friend” page. The Tibet Network is also accepting donations, which can made here.
