Since last March, at least 19 Tibetans, mostly monks and nuns, have set themselves on fire in protest of Chinese government policies. Every Tibetan in Tibet are sufferring and are threatened by communist China.

We the people of this world are deeply concern about the condition of people in Tibet and therefore we called for a UN-led fact-finding mission to observe the situation in Tibet.

UN must send a UN-led fact-finding mission to observe the situation in Tibet.

It's our world and lets Unite for our people.

      Having witnessed a self-immolation in Lhasa on 27th May the reality of the suffering in Tibet was brought home to me as never before. Despite all the material advances China has brought to Tibet, the spirit of the Tibetan people cries out for genuine freedom of religion and genuine self-determination.
