we've got signatures, help us get to 1,000 by December 2, 2013
Until now there have been 91 tibetans who have self immolated under the oppression of China's hardline policies. There is not a single resolution made from China's side, rather they have intensified the policies and clamped down on human rights.
People in the world do not know why they have to support those 91 Tibetans. First of all, they are human and their sacrifices were carried without hurting any one. They didn't have guns but they had courage to stand against the gun. They don't have rights but they stood for truth and justice by sacrificing their own life.
We say we need to change the world and we will prevail with peace on earth. But where were you when those peaceful protestors died asking for basic human rights, freedom, and return of His Holiness the Dalia Lama to his homeland? How can you ignore people burning when you have seen it and heard about it? Where are the values and priciples in yourself as a human being when you can't break your silence for these people?
Each and every one of us can contribute. I am not asking you to set yourself ablaze, I am just asking you to sign this petition and break your silence, stand for truth and justice, and let your support be known.

Dear World Leaders,
We are calling for action to be taken against the harsh and inhumane treatment of Tibetans in Tibet. The 91 self-immolations that have taken place were done to speak out against the Chinese regime that keeps them from practicing their religion, learning and keeping alive their traditions, owning pictures of their religious leader, gathering peacefully to speak with one another (whether about politics or not), and having access to media to tell the world about the abuse in Tibet. Tibetans are being tortured every day. Examples of why include drawing the Tibetan flag or having a photograph of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in their home.
People are being TORTURED for drawing a picture or owning a photograph. This is barbaric and unacceptable. They need the world's help!
Our wish is for the World Leaders to put the pressure on the Chinese Government to obey human rights policies in Tibet. As part of the UN, under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, China has the obligation to ensure basic human rights to its people. These include the freedom of religion, the freedom of expression and opinion, and the freedom to peacefully gather, ALL of which are being denied to Tibetans in Tibet. We urge you to stand up for what is right, and put pressure on China to allow basic human rights to Tibetans.
