Chinese armed police have killed around 100 Tibetans and injured many others for taking part in peaceful demonstrations, according to unconfirmed sources. These protests have spread from Lhasa to all over Tibet both in intensity and scale.

I) March 10th, 2008 marked the 49th anniversary of the Tibetan Uprising against the Chinese occupation in Lhasa. Not surprisingly, many Tibetans have decided to demonstrate on this occasion, against the arbitrary arrest and imprisonment, torture, lack of freedom of expression and religion, discrimination, exploitation, and killing that continue in Tibet to this day. And also not surprisingly, Chinese authorities have responded by beating, shooting, arresting, and torturing the protestors.

There are three things you can do to support the protestors and advocate for their safety:

1) Lodge a complaint with the Chinese authorities in Lhasa for their treatment of Tibetans:

2) Contact the Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith and ask him to publicly call upon the Chinese Government to immediately provide information on the welfare and whereabouts of the detained Buddhist monks:

3) Please call the Chinese authorities in Lhasa to show them the whole world is monitoring their actions closely:

Sorry about the repeat comments; my computer was running slow and I got impatient.

You're forgiven and I have noticed that the pages are taking longer to load. Must be all the advertising Care2 has put into these pages lately.

As for the article is all the more reason to boycott China, the Olympics and their products.
Signed one petition and one was already signed. "The situation in the Tibetan capital has intensified because Chinese authorities have rolled out a large number of armoured vehicles including TANKS in the Bharkor square and have started shooting into the protesting crowds."

TY, Vanessa.

The whole WORLD needs to have this screamed at them, we must get people aware and acting.

My own opinion now is if its not settled soon with an apology to the Tibetan people we should all withdraw from the Olympics now. The Chinese are saying it was all started by His Excellency The Dali Lama which we all knew that its not true. It now begins to become a situation for the United Nations.

This is just another of the million reasons we should not be at war against Iraq, we borrow tons and tons of money from China to be able to wage war, and because we borrow, our gov't will never say anything against China, and we have put ourselves in that position.
