Stop China's Crackdown on Tibet

Violence against protesters, monks and civilians in Tibet is quickly escalating as the deadly crackdown continues.

Only a few months away from the Beijing Summer Olympics, the Chinese government's violent attacks have already caused the death of around 100 people, while hundreds continue to be shot at, beat up and detained by China's security forces.

The atrocities committed to control these protests are a reminder of China's record of human rights abuses. The protests won't undermine the Olympics in China, but the brutal repression and use of force against the people of Tibet will.

Please, sign this petition to the Olympic Games Officials and the United Nations to make sure help is on the way for the people of Tibet.


  1. Olympic is not related to Politics. I think all people know Olympic games is an international multi-sports event. Though some people still do this for some purposes. Why people mix these two things together??? Can't we use another wise way to solve this problem?

  2. I think that every form of disapproval--included the boycott of the games's opening ceremonies--would have first and foremost the advantage that it might be welcome to Chinese critics of the Beijing regime - human rights activists, democrats, those kinds of people.

    "Can't we use another wise way to solve this problem?"
    Unfortunately I don't think so.
