“Tashi Wangchuk conducted a peaceful and non-political campaign to protect Tibetan language education in Tibet. Late last year, he was interviewed in the New York Times, talking frankly and openly about his campaign and the threat to Tibet’s culture. For that courageous decision, he has now been arrested and, if convicted, faces fifteen years in jail. Tibetans charged with political crimes are rarely found innocent in China’s courts. Many are convicted after confessions are extracted through torture…”

Free Tibet launches appeal for language campaigner


It is shocking the way in which human rights are violated in Tibet and indeed China itself while the nations of the world stand by and do very little other than make weak objections. More interested in trade with China and the exploitation of its people for the benefit of the wealthy and powerful such grave injustices are ignored and many people lose years of their lives and suffer torture in prisons for doing what most of us take for granted and that is the right to free speech. Simply for agreeing to an interview with the New York Time this unfortunate man has to spend fifteen years in prison!

Please take as many of the above actions as you can.
