End the Chinese Occupation of Tibet!!!!!
The Tibetans have launched an Intifada.. Chinese authorities are responding with brute force today to peaceful protests and Tibetans have reported tanks in the streets, homes burning and gun shots. Thousands of armed troops have sealed off the three major monasteries where nonviolent protests were initiated on Monday and Chinese police continue to fire live ammunition into crowds of unarmed Tibetans. Eye-witnesses in Lhasa say that up to 80 Tibetans are dead, 26 gunned down outside Drapchi prison.
China continues to be one of the worse human rights abusers in the world. In addition to their long standing occuaption and cultural genocide of Tibet, China is at the forefront of the exploitation of the African continent, with direct foreign investment investment of 1.595 billion last year alone. The goal of the Chinese govt is 100 billion by 2010. The largest recipient of China's "aid" is the Sudan. And aid comes with a price- it is used to secure access to the oil, mining and timber resources of Africa.
Join us at the Chinese Consulate at 4:00 and send the message “Enough is enough!” “Hands off Sudan.” “Hands Off Tibet” “Stop Supplying arms to Burma” . Bring your own signs, flags and banners, and then we’ll march down to the Civic center to join the peace rally at 5:00
