Representative of 5 major NGO’s leaders.

As world leaders converge on St Petersburg in Russia for a G20 summit meant to tackle global economic uncertainty, exile Tibetans called on world leaders to intervene on the worsening human rights situation in Tibet.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will preside over the meeting of nations, to be held on Thursday and Friday in the gilded splendour of the Tsarist Peterhof palace in St Petersburg.

The G20 economies account for 90 percent of global output, 80 percent of world trade, and two-thirds of the world’s population.

Issues on the agenda include fostering freer trade, creating stronger financial regulations, and creating jobs. The meeting is likely to be overshadowed by the situation in Syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons on civilians.

Tibetans say that 60 years of Chinese occupation of Tibet have left Tibetans bereft of basic human rights and have marginalised Tibetans within their own homeland.

Five major Tibetan organisations: Tibetan Youth Congress, Tibetan Women’s Association, National Democratic Party for Tibet, Gu Chu Sum Movement for Tibet, and Students for a Free Tibet, India, called on world leaders to “unite for Tibet” and engage with Chinese president Xi Jinping to address the crisis in Tibet.

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”

Stand Up for Tibet – Self Immolation

Eleven young Tibetans have set fire to themselves in eastern Tibet since March 2011; eight since 26 September. At least five have died including a nun. These unprecedented and truly desperate acts are a cry to the outside world for help.

Seven of these self-immolations are linked to Kirti Monastery in Ngaba, one of the largest and most influential monastic institutions in Tibet.

China’s merciless and violent crackdown in Ngaba and throughout Tibet is intensifying Tibetan grievances and exacerbating the resentment and desperation felt across Tibet.

This growing tragedy, if left unchecked, could spiral even further into a nation-wide crisis, unless the world acts now.

The international community, both citizens and governments, must Stand Up for Tibet. Global diplomatic intervention now will save Tibetan lives.
