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) Call on your representatives to condemn the attacks:

4) Pledge to boycott the Olympics:
