STUDENTS FOR A FREE TIBET - you can help...

BEIJING: WE ARE READY
“If…human rights are not acted upon to our satisfaction then we will act.” Jacques Rogge, IOC President on China, BBC’s Hardtalk, April 2002

December 10th, International Human Rights Day, is a day set-aside to recognize the inherent rights of every individual. The IOC promised in 2001, when they awarded China the 2008 Summer Olympics, that the Games would bring an improvement in the human right situation in China.




In reality, the human rights situation in China and Tibet is growing steadily worse. In the lead up to the Beijing Olympics, Chinese authorities are intensifying their crackdown on freedom of religion, assembly and expression in Tibet.
Just last month in Eastern Tibet, Runggye Adak (hyperlink: http://actionnetwork.org/campaign/runggye_adak), a 52 year-old father of eleven, was sentenced to eight years in prison for simply calling for the return of the Dalai Lama to Tibet.

China is clearly a human rights failure. And yet, the IOC remains silent.

But Tibetans and their supporters around the world are speaking out. In the lead up to August 2008, we are shining the spotlight on China’s brutal occupation of Tibet and failed human rights record.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

1) Download and watch SFT HQ’s “Beijing: We are Ready” video and spread the word on UTube/ Flickr/ Facebook/ Hi5/ Blog/ website or other social networking site. Screen the film on campus or in your community.

  1. zona stroza Said,

    Unfortunately IOC has rejected the Team Tibet application. The officials have said that they are not in the poistion (!!!) do decide about Tibetian participation in Olympic Games.

     

  2. maggia-foto Said,

    Zdrowia, spokoju i radości, uśmiechów, ciepła, miłości, wszystkiego co najlepsze w nadchodzące Święta oraz bardzo szalonego Sylwestra i szczęśliwego Nowego Roku.
    pozdrawiam cieplutko i świątecznie.

    Mountaineering is my hobby and profession of walking, hiking, trekking and climbing up mountains. It is also sometimes known as alpinism, particularly in Europe.
