After decades of repression, Tibetans are crying out to the world for change. China’s leaders are right now making a crucial choice between escalating brutality or dialogue that could determine the future of Tibet, and China.

We can affect this historic choice — China does care about its international reputation. But it will take an avalanche of global people power to get the government’s attention. The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, has called for restraint and dialogue: he needs the world’s people to support him. Fill out the form below to sign the petition–and spread the word.

Petition to Chinese President Hu Jintao:

As citizens around the world, we call on you to show restraint and respect for human rights in your response to the protests in Tibet, and to address the concerns of all Tibetans by opening meaningful dialogue with the Dalai Lama. Only dialogue and reform will bring lasting stability. China’s brightest future, and its most positive relationship with the world, lies in harmonious development, dialogue and respect.

Act now to end the violence:

function check_postcode(text_) { if(document.getElementById(‘Postcode’).disabled == true) { return true; } else { if(document.getElementById(‘Postcode’).value ==”) { alert(text_); return false; } else { return true; } } }

Sign the petition

  1. China, you should think about WW2 and what Japan did to China and Korea. You should think about that and think of how Tibetans are going through. You are no better than the Japanese. Japan doesnt have to apologize to you for ANYTHING! Because you are acting just like them. Just know that the whole world is watching you and every country except you hope that Tibet is freed.

    FREE TIBET!!
