Subject: What is going on with TPIE?
Sep 17 2014 07:11 PM

Speaker Penpa Tsering's comments at the opening session of the 8th Tibetan Parliament are incredible. What is the basis for complete faith in the Indian Govt to help solve the Tibetan issue? Yes, India has granted asylum to His Holiness and many Tibetan refugees and for that I'm grateful. But India refuses to press China to improve human rights in Tibet or to allow Tibetans to exercise self-determination. Why won't the TPIE do more to ask India to help Tibet?

And what's the basis for Tsering saying that the situation in Tibet will improve under Xi Jinping? The situation in Tibet got worse after 2008 and deteriorates further under Xi. Over 130 Tibetans have self-immolated since 2009. Tibet is under a police state and hundreds of Tibetans are in jail for doing nothing more than voicing their opinions or showing faith in His Holiness. Tibetan nomads are being forcibly re-settled in ghettoes. Xi refuses to talk about Tibet's political future or engage in any dialogue with the CTA. Where is there evidence of hope or improvement? Is the Speaker so out of touch with the reality in Tibet?
