DHARAMSALA, JUNE 5: The Tibetan government in exile known officially as the Central Tibetan Administration today launched what it called a “concerted effort to date” to bring about basic freedom for Tibetan people.

“We are calling on the people of the world – young and old – to join the UMAYLAM: Middle Way Approach Campaign and help secure the future of the Tibetan people,” Tibetan Prime Minister Lobsang Sangay told reporters at a press conference called for the launch of the campaign.

Sangay said he found out during his visits and meetings with various individuals including leaders that there is misinformation about the middle way approach and that this latest initiative from his administration “would help people across the globe understand exactly what the Tibetan people were calling for – genuine autonomy.”

The Department of Information and International Relations made public its new website devoted especially to the middle way approach, and released a short documentary video. It also promised regular updates on the website and the campaign's Facebook and Twitter page.

The Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama was presented with the materials related to the Middle Way approach, an official policy of the Tibetan administration to resolve the issue of Tibet, at the end of today’s teaching to the Tibetan youth here.

“The Middle Way Approach information materials – including an interactive website, short documentary video, Social Media campaign, timeline of the Tibetan struggle and FAQs – many of them available in 7 languages including Chinese – will make it very easy for people around the world to understand exactly what the Tibetan administration is proposing in terms of genuine autonomy within China,” Dr. Sangay said.

Talks between Dharamshala and Beijing resumed in 2002 with nine rounds of talks taking place until 2010. The dialogue had entered a stalemate after a "Memorandum on Genuine Autonomy for the Tibetan People” submitted by the Tibetan side in October 2008 was met with Beijing’s derision. China accused the Tibetan side of seeking disguised independence through the “so called autonomy”.

The Tibetan administration is seeking to target the international community – young people, diplomats, media, people from all walks of life across different nations — to counter the “Chinese Government’s misinformation campaign about the policy.”

The Middle Way Approach is already supported by international leaders including US President Barack Obama and many Chinese intellectuals, such as imprisoned Nobel Peace Laureate, Liu Xiaobo, Sangay said.

Sangay said his administration had spent the past year creating a set of documents and multimedia materials that would make it clear how long His Holiness and the Tibetan administration had stuck firm to this policy, about its impact to date and its intentions for the future.
