Tibetan parliamentarians stage hunger strike to end China’s bloodshed in Tibet
Press Release[Wednesday, March 19, 2008 14:50]
URGENT ACTION CAMPAIGN

China¹s ongoing brutal crackdown on the unprecedented non-violent demonstrations across the whole of Tibet since the 10th of March 2008 to mark the 49th Anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising Day has resulted in 80 confirmed and over 100 unconfirmed deaths as of the date of this letter for exercising their fundamental right to expression and assembly.

Despite random killings, grievous injuries and arrests of thousands of peaceful demonstrators; fresh incidents of people¹s movement are still being widely reported which is evident of deep rooted resentment of the people of Tibet towards China¹s repressive policies.

The deteriorating situation in Tibet continues with media blackout and blockage of major means of communication with the outside world. This will result in further isolation of the Tibetans and the world will remain unaware of the ongoing brutal and inhuman suppression which is expected to worsen in the days to come. We have news that the Tibetan Higher People¹s Court of China has issued a notice on 15 March 2008 demanding the surrender of the peaceful demonstrators by the night of 17 March 2008.

The recent events have caused the Tibetan people much anguish. The Tibetan Parliament in Exile is extremely concerned over the safety and security of the Tibetans in Tibet in the absence of media and third party witnesses.

All members of the Tibetan Parliament in exile are on an unprecedented day hunger strike on 19 March 2008 in order to urgently appeal to the world governments, international bodies and the world community to undertake the following to redress the crisis in Tibet:

1. Support immediate dispatch of a fact-finding representative(s) to monitor the situation inside Tibet.

2. Intervene to stop further bloodbath in Tibet and demand immediate release of all those arrested.

3. Urge the Chinese leadership to lift the ban on media and allow free movement of press in Tibet.

4. Ensure immediate and adequate medical relief to injured innocent civilians peacefully demonstrating in Tibet.
