Central Tibetan Administration sends "Urgent Appeal" to international community
Press Release[Monday, March 17, 2008 21:00]
Urgent Appeal

Since 10th March 2008 there has been successive peaceful demonstrations in various parts of Tibet (inside and outside TAR), which were brutally suppressed.

Joint press conference called by Kashag (Executive) and Tibetan Parliament in Exile on Sunday announced the formation of a centralized committee to deal with the present “urgent situation” inside Tibet. Tibetan Prime Minister Prof. Samdhong Rinpoche (C), Speaker of the House Mr Karma Choephel (R) and Vice Speaker Dolma Gyari spoke to a large gathering of media and called on Tibetan exiles to come under central leadership in a united effort to deal with the current “crisis in Tibet”. PM Samdhong Rinpoche said Tibetans inside Tibet are facing a “life and death situation” and, called on international community to urgently send a fact-finding delegation as China prepares for a deadly crackdown on Tibetan demonstrators in Tibet after Monday midnight. The Tibetan PM also said there were at least 80 Tibetans confirmed killed during the weeklong protests in Tibet and several more remaining unconfirmed. (Photo by Tenzin Dasel / Phayul.com)

The current situation in Tibet is extremely serious. The Chinese government's ultimatum is due to expire at mid-night today. Therefore, we are extremely concerned that there is every possibility of a huge massacre of Tibetans taking place after the ultimatum.

The Central Tibetan Administration urgently appeal to the international community including the United Nations, governments, parliaments, Human Rights groups and Tibet Support groups to effectively urge the Chinese leadership to immediately stop repression and to release all those who have been detained, and to provide immediate medical care to all those who have been injured.

We particularly urge the United Nations Human Rights Council to immediately send a fact-finding delegation to all the affected areas in Tibet to prevent further deteriorations of the critical situation.
