“We must do all we can…Use all our powers to help save Tibet! Humanity will regret it…if we don’t!”
This might seem a long way off in the future however the decisions concerning the 2022 Olympics are being made very soon so we need to take action now.
Please sign a petition to Stop China hosting the Olympics again. Please read the following from Free Tibet’s website which explains why China needs to be stopped from hosting the 2022 winter Olympic games and take action by signing the petition – there are other actions you can take further down.
Unfamiliar with the situation in Tibet please watch the following video – rare news report from 2008, containing dramatic footage shot undercover in Tibet – shows clearly why China should not be selected as host to another Oplympics.
There is less than two months before the international Olympics Committee IOC makes their decision please read the information that follows and sign the global change.org petition now and demand that the IOC rejects China’s bid.
“China will see hosting the Olympic Games again as a signal that the world doesn’t care about Tibet.Please sign this urgent Change.org petition and tell the International Olympics Committee to reject Beijing.
Beijing is one of only two cities competing to host the Winter Olympic Games in 2022. If it were to win the Games, it would be the first city ever to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics.The 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing saw worldwide attention on Tibet, with daring stunts by Tibet campaigners and enormous controversy resulting from China’s brutal suppression of the Tibetan uprising in March 2008.
When it awarded the Games to China in 2001, the International Olympics Committee (IOC) claimed that the Olympics would improve human rights in China. Nothing could be further from the truth. Since then, repression has deepened in Tibet and in China itself, the government is more intolerant of free speech and opposition to its rule than ever before.
The IOC must not reward China for repression by giving it the Olympic Games again. More than 175 Tibet groups across the globe have joined forces to oppose Beijing’s bid. Please sign the global Change.org petition now and demand that the IOC rejects China’s bid.
The decision will be made in less than two months. Please sign the petition now and ask your friends and family do so too.”

Regarding the Olympics please read the following from the above website:

Losing the bet on human rights: Beijing, Tibet and the Olympic Games details the IOC’s claims that the Olympic Games would lead to greater respect for human rights by China’s government: in 2001, its president said that it was “taking the bet” that human rights would improve in China.
Human rights have not improved in China , yet the world turns it back too busy sucking up to China, no doubt the motivation as always is profit exploitation and unbridled greed. Sadly in this world human rights take a second place if any place at all. The above action may seem small and insignificant but every action helps to make the world more aware of the plight of the Tibetan people.
