The Chinese in their attempt to annihilate the entire race, culture, and heritage of more than 2000 years have left no stone unturned. Under the guise of “Strike Hard” campaign, the Chinese Government is systematically implementing plans to crush the Tibetan spirit of freedom. Tibet is undergoing the worst phase of human rights deterioration to date. The need to generate global awareness has become paramount.
The 53rd session of the UN Commission of Human Rights, to be held in Geneva on 10 March 1997, could represent the first step towards a promising future for Tibet. The impetus for a more positive approach regarding Tibet begins with you.
We urge our readers to appeal to young national government, foreign ministry and regional representatives to take up the initiative:
- To submit a concrete resolution condemning China for human rights violations in Tibet.
- To press for the immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners.
- To allow internationally recognised human rights observes and other concerned NGO’s to enter Tibet in order to monitor the human rights situation.
