Resisting intolerance: an ethical and global challenge #DalaiLama

Publicado el 13/07/2012 por 

Speaker(s): His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Chair: Professor Conor Gearty
Recorded on 20 June 2012 in Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is visiting the LSE to deliver the opening speech of a one’ day conference entitled Tolerance in a Just and Fair Society, at the invitation of Frederick Bonnart Braunthal Trust, Matrix Chambers, the Sigrid Rausing Trust and the London School of Economics & Political Science.

HH the Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. He was born on 6th July 1935 in north-eastern Tibet and recognised as the incarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama at the age of two. Since 1959, he has been living in Dharamsala in the north of India which is now the seat of the Central Tibetan Administration.

In 2011 HH the Dalai Lama completed the process of democratisation of the Central Tibetan Administration by devolving all his political authorities to the elected leadership.

HH the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 in recognition of his opposition to the use of violence in the Tibetan struggle and his work internationally for peace, human rights issues and global environmental problems. In September 2006, he received the highest civilian honour in the United States, the Congressional Gold Medal, in recognition of his advocacy of non-violence, human rights and religious understanding.

More recently, on 14 May 2012, HH the Dalai Lama was presented with the 2012 Templeton Prize at a ceremony at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. The Templeton Prize honours a living person who has made an exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension, whether through insight, discovery, or practical works.


Solidarity and Resistance: A Statement by the Global Tibet Movement #TibetMovement

This video statement by representatives of the worldwide Tibet Movement summarizes the current situation in Tibet, and calls on China, our Governments and the global community to take urgent action, so that Tibetans can live in the peace and freedom that they have sacrificed so much to achieve.

We demand a coordinated international response by world leaders to condemn China’s repressive measures in the affected regions and across Tibet, and to institute multi-lateral mechanisms to advocate for the Tibetan people. Most immediately, we call on China to withdraw its security forces from Tibet areas now, and stop the ongoing harassment and torture of monks.



Harry Wu & Yu Jie speak at 2/14 anti-Xi Jinping protest in front of White House

Harry Wu: “Hello, everybody. Today, we have come here to protest. Communist China has occupied Tibet for more than 50 years, and also has suppressed the Uyghur people, as well as the Han Chinese. This is the thing: we have to send a message to Xi Jinping: Free Tibet, free the Uyghurs, free China! I think Communist China will not be too long in this country. I do believe it will be free very soon.

“Unfortunately I have bad news, that 24 Tibetans have killed themselves in protest for the Dalai Lama. Tibetans are a free nationality. We have to remember these 24 people who sacrifice themselves. But I am very happy today that so many Tibetans are here to say we want to be free. I am very happy. Thank you.

“I have another dissident here. This is Yu Jie. He came here a month ago. He was an independent writer and also a religious leader. He came to the United States 10 times: In 2005 in was interviewed by President Bush. In 2003 he came here as a freedom writer, invited by the American State Department. But this time he is here to apply for political asylum and will stay here in the United States.”

Yu Jie: “我很高興到這裡來,我可以公開地表達我的觀點。除了幾年前在香港之外,在中國的其它地方,沒有可能這樣地、公開地表達對共產黨的批評。在我看來,只要在共產黨的一黨專制­的體制之下,不管是漢人、藏人、還是維族,還是其他任何民族,他們都受到很殘酷的迫害。我是一個虔誠的基督教徒,但是我也知在中國國內其他的那些宗教信仰者(佛教徒、伊斯­蘭教徒、法論功的信徒)他們也收到非常殘酷的迫害。雖然我們是不同的民族,我們有不同的信仰,但是我們有一樣的那個自由的渴望,民主的渴望。我看完的,要記得我們共同地努­力,在不久的將來,我們在天安門廣場上能夠這樣自由地表達。”

(Harry’s translation: I am very happy to be here, where I can publicly, openly, firmly say what I want to say. When I was in China there was no way to express my opinions, except in the small island of Hong Kong. I only can say something today here. Even today in China, only one party rules the country, including the Tibetans, Uyghurs, and Han Chinese. No one can be free to say whatever they want to say. I am an honest Christian believer, but I also understand that in China, Tibetans, Muslims, Falun Gong, etc., cannot be free to practice their religions. Although we are different nationalities, we all have the heart for democracy and peace and freedom. I hope someday all of us, including Tibetans, Uyghurs, and Han Chinese, can unite and celebrate our freedom in Tiananmen Square.)

Tell China to Release Tibetan Poet Tashi Rabten

http://theurangsfort.com/  ན་གཞོན་རྩོམ་པ་པོ་ཐེའུ་རང་ངམ་བཀྲ་ཤིས་རབ་བརྟན་གྱི་ལོ་རྒྱུས་སྙིང་བསྡུས ། 


Why This Is Important

High Peaks Pure Earth, 100 Thousand Poets for Change, Split This Rock, members of the Tibetan community, and human rights/freedom of speech supporters call for the immediate and unconditional release of Tibetan poet Tashi Rabten in accordance with Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which China is a signatory. http://www2.ohchr.org/english/law/ccpr.htm#art19

According to the International Campaign for Tibet, “In an environment of intense repression in Ngaba, Tibet, a young writer has been sentenced to four years in prison on charges linked to a collection of bold essays on the unrest and crackdown in Tibet since 2008. Tashi Rabten, the editor of banned literary magazine Eastern Snow Mountain (Shar Dungri), was sentenced on June 2 by the Ngaba Intermediate People’s Court. His sentencing follows that of three other Tibetan intellectuals who wrote powerful essays for Shar Dungri, now banned in Tibet. Copies of the journal were among books seized and burnt by security personnel at a school in the Ngaba area in April 2011.” For more information, click herehttp://www.savetibet.org/media-center/ict-news-reports/tibetan-writer-tashi-rabten-sentenced-four-years-ngaba

In a PEN letter of appeal from Larry Siems, Director of Freedom to Write and International Programs, to Hu Jintao, the President of the Republic of China, Mr. Siems writes, “On behalf of the 3,300 members of PEN American Center, an international organization of writers dedicated to protecting freedom of expression wherever it is threatened, we are writing to protest the arrest of Tibetan writer and editor Tashi Rabten” and calls for Tashi Rabten’s “immediate and unconditional release.”http://www.pen.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/3786/prmID/1610 .

In his poem,”Prisoner in Hell” translated from the Tibetan by Bhuchang D. Sonam, Tashi Rabten writes:

“Hell is a fortress made from iron and steel
A doorless fortress of shackles and handcuffs

Freedom-loving people are the prisoners of this fortress
Or they are criminals seeing the darkness of the hell
These people have fallen to the darkness of hell wanting to see freedom”
