Online Tibet actions

I’ve assembled 3 quick links for anyone asking “but what can I do?” in relation to the situation in Tibet.  If you haven’t already done so, please take the time to add your name to these campaigns – they are all quick and easy, but can make a difference.

  • GetUp campaign to urge Rudd to raise Tibet when he visits China.
  • Avaaz campaign addressed to Chinese President Hu Jintao.
  • Another urgent online action for Tibet – this one from Students for a Free Tibet is to ask the IOC to intervene and ensure that the Olympic torch doesn’t go through Tibet (including Lhasa and Mt Everest).  The Chinese government are planning these stops on the torch relay to try and legitimise their occupation of Tibet.  At this point in time, we have grave concerns that if the torch were to go through parts of Tibet it would only inflame the already tense situation, leading to further protests and likely violent reprisals from the large Chinese military presence now assembled there.

To keep up to date, the best bet is to sign up to ATC’s e-List, as some of the protests and events are being organised at short notice and the website can’t always keep up with us.
