THRAC has added its name as a co-signer of a letter of appeal to world leaders calling for them to take action on the growing crisis in Tibet. The appeal was proposed by Sheng Xue, President of the Federation for a Democratic China, a global alliance of Chinese pro-democracy organisations, in solidarity with Tibetans. The appeal will be sent to the United Nations, the European Union, Members of Parliaments and Governments, and NGOs for human rights, calling on the international community, as well as individual countries and NGOs, to send independent investigation teams to Tibet, to investigate the cause of self-immolations in Tibet, and the true situation in Tibet. THRAC will assist in sending a version of this letter to Canadian members of parliament and senators. Two links to Tibetan news services have been added to our links on the right-hand side of this page.
