Stand with Tibet - Support the Dalai Lama

After decades of repression, Tibetans are crying out to the world for change. China's leaders are right now making a crucial choice between escalating brutality or dialogue that could determine the future of Tibet, and China.

We can affect this historic choice -- China does care about its international reputation. But it will take an avalanche of global people power to get the government's attention. The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, has called for restraint and dialogue: he needs the world's people to support him. Fill out the form below to sign the petition--and spread the word.

Avaaz.org - The World in Action


.... I just wanted to throw this out there.. i dont need to hear lame comments or snarky remarks... if you sign it great.. if not.. whatever... just wanted to bring attention to those who are interested. :)

With the threat of an Olympic boycott looming it's possible some sort of solution could be reached here. So please sign the petition and pass it along. adding a note to your wall on FaceBook will proabbly get 20 more people to sign it!!!

"boycott looming" : it's not fucking looming, only France has the balls to even vocally consider that step (and haven't said they will yet) and every other country has agreed that it's "unfair to the athlete's"
FUCK THE ATHLETE'S, PEOPLE ARE BEING KILLED.

I can't believe the answer"politics and sports should not mix"

this isn't politics, it's war. Politics is voting a representative to power to make changes like how much taxes we pay. Tibet is under military occupation and martial law. People are dying, and they say it's "political" ??? what the fuck?!

If you feel as I do, art can be a powerful tool for raising social awareness. My friend Rebecca and myself collaborated on this graphic to remind people of the struggle in Tibet. Please distribute it freely, and hopefully we will see many other like it as we approach the dishonorable 2008 Olympics.

"The global outcry over Tibet is rising fast - In just 5 days, 751,472 of us from 192 countries have come together to call for restraint and dialogue with the Dalai Lama. Even more amazing, we have told over 5 million of our friends about this important campaign - that's 1 million people per day!"
