We are organizing this protest during Xi Jinping’s visit to United States so that he can hear us directly and also urge our local leaders as well as world leaders to lead a global effort to stop future deaths and encourage negotiations between the Chinese government and His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s representatives. It’s a known fact that there is an increase in repression under the new leadership of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Since March 2009, 143 Tibetans have set themselves on fire and are the direct result of China’s harsh suppression of Tibetan culture, language and religion. Most of the self-immolations occurred in the Himalayan region in response to China’s escalating attempts to stifle Tibetans’ peaceful political expression and public religious veneration of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Many Tibetans also oppose China’s compulsory “patriotic education” programs for Tibetan monks and nuns, as well as new laws expanding Chinese control over the selection of Buddhist religious leaders. Religious freedom conditions for Tibetan Buddhists remain particularly acute as the government broadened its efforts to discredit and imprison spiritual leaders, control the selection of Buddhist reincarnations, ban peaceful religious and cultural songs, poems and writings. The Chinese government’s policies have led to significant religious freedom abuses and nurtured deep resentments among Tibetan people.
