Tibet

18 03 2008

I’ve received an e-mail from “The Hub” 

Dear friend,

Monks marching in the streets, buildings being burned, students staging sit-in protests, midnight raids by the military, towns and cities being sealed off…

This is Tibet after the most violent protests in nearly 20 years following pro-independence rallies commemorating the 49th anniversary of the Dalai Lama’s escape from Tibet. The Chinese government reports 16 people dead while the Tibetan Government in Exile, reports at least 80 deaths. Watch videos of the protests here.International concern is growing as a result of house-to-house raids, imposed curfews, numerous arrests, and increased media repression.The Chinese government has reportedly placed restrictions on international media coverage in Tibet, blocking or filtering websites like Yahoo! and YouTube and censoring the local feeds of news agencies including the BBC and CNN. However, eyewitness accounts, photos, and videos (mostly from cellphones) are making their way out — and onto the Hub

Three things you can do now:

1) Forward this email- help keep the spotlight on Tibet;
2) Watch the latest videos on Tibet and take action on our Tibet action center;
3) Upload or embed – if you have or see Tibet-related video, photos or audio. You can also
email us.
For the latest on events in Tibet visit our blog and join the conversation.Sincerely,
Ryan Schlief
Program Coordinator for Asia

PS:  If you’re a blogger, please embed Tibet-related media from the Hub in your posts and help with our call-out for Tibet-related media. More info here.
