DHARAMSHALA, MARCH 28: Tibetans in the US and Australia marked the Tibet Lobby Day on (March 27 & 28) to call for action on Tibet issues including deteriorating human rights situation in Tibet and lack of freedom of religion and speech in Tibet.

The US based International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) in association with Students for a Free Tibet (SFT) and Tibetan Associations in the US met with representatives of various US Senators to advocate on issues such as disappearance of 11th Panchen Lama, demolition of Larung Gar, environmental damages and arrest of language activist Tashi Wangchuk and writer Shokjang, among other issues.

“We are excited to see the Tibet Lobby Day becoming a global initiative to raise awareness on the situation inside Tibet, and to gain momentum in cities around the world where political decisions are made,” said Matteo Mecacci, President of the ICT. “Democracy and participation are needed now more than ever to make sure that Tibetans are not forgotten in the name of doing business with China.”

The dedicated days provide an opportunity for the Tibet supporters and Tibetans to raise their voice against the injustice happening inside Tibet.

Tibetans in Australia also met with several MPs and Senators to amplify the Tibet issue in Canberra. Stating human rights should come first, Senator Scott Ludlam in his message to the Australian government suggested that the government use its strong relationship with China to speak freely and honestly.

Expressing no hostility against Beijing, the senator said, “If it is truly your view that everything is good inside Tibet then there should be no problem with outside people visiting Tibet and forming their own views.”

The annual event is targeted at raising awareness on Tibet and encouraging politicians, MPs and Senators to take action for Tibet and pressure China to curb the injustice upon Tibetan people.
