Candle Light Vigil & Protest at the Chinese Embassy on Sat 10th Dec

Dear friends,

Recently, our brothers & sisters in Tibet was imprisoned and killed by China during Patriotic Education campaign in the monasteries & nunneries in Tibet. Around 400 monks staged a mass non-violent protest against China to call for the release of the arrested monks and refused to denounce His Holiness the Dalai Lama as "Separatist" and to accept "Tibet is part of China". Perhaps this might be one of the biggest protests ever held after a decade of severe restriction and religious repression in Tibet. The tenth [10th] December is observe as the International Human Rights Day throughout the world. But China continues to torture and violate human rights in Tibet.

The recent crackdown on the Tibetan monks and nunsí peaceful protest stand in stark contrast to assurances by Chinese President Hu Jintao that human rights is improving in Tibet. Hu Jintao is said to have made these assurances during the latest
visits of US President George Bush to China, followed by the visits of UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Mr. Manfred Nowak in Tibet.

Let's stand united to protest against the Chinese regime and to show solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Tibet. To observe the International Human Rights Day, Tibetan Youth in UK is holding candle-light vigil and protest at the Chinese Embassy in London on 10th December 2004 at 4-6 pm.

Join the protest and candle light vigil. We do apologize for the short notice, but hope that you will definitely come to voice for the voiceless people.
