URGENT ACTION: Speak Up About the Shooting of Tibetans

Dear Friend of Tibet

A young Tibetan nun is reported to have been shot dead by Chinese border patrols and at least one other Tibetan was killed while on their way into exile in Nepal. A number of international climbers at Mount Cho Oyu base camp saw Chinese military personnel kneel down, take aim and open fire on a group of 70 Tibetans, some of whom were children as young as ten.

Please write to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Louise Arbour, and Australian Foreign Minister, Alexander Downer, and urge them to investigate these shootings. Follow this link for more information.

Please take a few minutes to send two emails now.

Thank you for your support.
