Tibet Lobby Day: Show Your Support

Tibet Lobby Day: Show Your Support

February 28th and March 1st are Tibet Lobby Days.  Multiple Tibet support groups rally together on these two days to inform politicians about Tibet, and reinforce the U.S. voting public’s support for the Tibetan people.

From International Campaign for Tibet:

More than 100 Tibetan-Americans and friends of Tibet will be visiting their Senators and Representatives over the next two days. In total, they will have face-to-face meetings in more than 100 Congressional offices. We need every office to hear our message.

Your voice – by email, phone or fax – will make a big difference in their efforts, but only if you send a message now.

The U. S. Congress has long been a bulwark of support for Tibet, from giving His Holiness the Dalai Lama his first parliamentary forum in 1987, to millions of dollars in Tibet support programs funding each year. As the Congress considers how to trim the budget this year, it is imperative to remind our Members of their longstanding commitment to Tibet.

The purpose of Tibet Lobby Day is not just to maintain this Congressional support, but to also establish Tibet as a constituent issue. Facing the well-funded lobbying might of the Chinese Embassy, it is critical for us to let our elected representatives know of the breadth and depth of support for the cause of Tibet.

Please send a message now to your Member of Congress. It only takes a minute. To send a message by email, visit:
http://action.savetibet.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=3436

At the end of this email is a sample message you can use if you would like to call or fax.  You can easily find the contact numbers for your Congressional representatives at:

If you’re not sure who your House Representative is, you can find out at:

China should stop a lot of things, really! They are becomming one of the first economies at all costs, and at anybody´s expenses, including the animals. Europe banned seal fur trade, lovely China bought them!! shame, also for Canada. I don´t buy any chinese products, for years now.

I hate hate hate hate hate the Chinese government and regime, and hate how they cant careless about the weak and vulnerable; if you cant really compete with them, they mercilessly crush you.
And I also hate how Tibet is forgotten like it doesnt exist, and like its people dont matter, why? Because they live in the shadow of great China? Not a good enough reason for me :/

China should not be in Tibet, Great Britian should not be in Ireland, the US should not be in the Middle East, and so it goes. Always has, always will.

I "fly" prayer flags 2 places in my house, and have given a set to my granddaughters with an explanation of what they mean. The UN needs to put more pressure on China now. Alas, while we owe so much money to China Tibet is still a political football for America, but the Dalai Lama is ever hopeful!
