I am Sangyal Kyab, a Tibetan-Canadian from Parkdale-High Park, Toronto. Today, on June 28th, I have started on a peace walk for Tibet from Toronto to Ottawa and back to Toronto, covering a total distance of over 770 km.

This year marks 61 years since China illegally invaded Tibet in 1959. Since then, Tibet has remained one of the most repressed and least free regions in the world. Washington based research institute Freedom House has ranked Tibet as the second least free country in the world for the fifth year in a row.

In 2016, I won the Mr Tibet Canada contest, and since 2018, I have been diligently protesting in front of the Chinese Consulate in Toronto every Wednesday for the past 2 years for human rights in Tibet.

The PRC’s return to totalitarian ideology in recent years has led to even more control over Tibet with a sharp increase in the arbitrary arrest, detention, and torture of human rights defenders and activists. Peaceful dissent of any kind and degree are met with harsh penalties. Tibetans and Uyghurs suspected of criminal offenses, particularly those about political matters, are almost always denied the right to fair trial or hearing.

Through my activism and this 'Peace Walk for Tibet', I am calling for China and the international community to support the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet, to renew Sino-Tibet dialogue in good faith, and to release Panchen Lama, Tashi Wangchuk and other political prisoners in Tibet. 

Please sign this petition to support my demands:

1. Support the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to homeland Tibet
2. Renew Sino-Tibet dialogue in good faith and support human rights in Tibet
3. Release Panchen Lama, Tashi Wangchuk, and all other political prisoners in Tibet.
