I just signed an urgent petition calling on the Chinese government to respect human rights in Tibet andÂ dialogue with the Dalai Lama. This is really important, and I thought you might want to take action:
After nearly 50 years of Chinese rule, the Tibetans are sending out a global cry for change. Violence is spreading across Tibet and neighbouring regions, and the Chinese regime is right now making a crucial choice between tougher crackdown or dialogue.
President Hu Jintao needs to hear that “Made in China” exports and the upcoming Olympics in Beijing will have the support of the world’s people only if he chooses dialogue. But it will take an avalanche of global people power to get his attention.Â Click below to sign the petition–in just 7 days, the campaign is over half way to the goal of 2 million signatures!
