FREEDOM FOR TIBET
OLYPIC TORCH SYMBOL OF PEACE


Vilnius April 30, 2008

     Yet for almost half a century Tibet is under China occupation. During this time directly or indirectly more than one third of Tibetans have become victims of Chinas occupation: for the slightest disobedience for the occupation authorities people are being killed or imprisoned; there are no freedom of speech, media and religion; women are being sterilized, children have no possibility to study in their native language. By such actions the Government of People Republic of China (PRC) are denying its own declarations about respect to democratic values, ideals of freedom and democracy. Country, in which human and nations rights are being violated in the most brutal way and peaceful protesters are being killed is not worth o organize Olympic Games which are based on the principles of peace and brotherhood.
     With great concern and awareness the world community is following what is going on in Tibet and PRC. August 9, 2007 Olympic Human Rights Torch was inaugurated in Athens. Till the opening of the Olympics the Torch will visit 150 cities in all the five continents (see www.humanrightstorch.org, www.cipfg.org). September 24 great number of Vilnius citizens took part in the Human Rights Torch procession, meeting in the Cathedral Square and high Mass in the arch-cathedral basilica. The participants adopted resolutions condemning massacre in Tibet and China and urged sportsmen to refuse their participation in the Olympics if China will not ensure freedom for Tibet.
     We appeal to all good will people who are concerned in freedom, peace and justice to support peaceful Tibet nations striving for realization of its inherent right of self-determination and to condemn illegal and criminal Communist Partys of PRC and Governments actions in Tibet.
We urge Parliaments and Governments all over the world to confirm their commitment for freedom, democracy and human as well as nations rights and to refuse sending their sportsmen to the Olympics in Bejing and officially adress the PRC leadership about what is going on in Tibet. We suggest to withdraw condition for possibility to attend the Olympics to demand from the leadership of PRC to arrange direct a highest level meeting between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the PRC president Hu Jin Tao to discuss the issue of Tibet Independence and future without any preconditions.
     THE SPORTSMEN of the world You are ambassadors of Peace and Democracy! We urge you to BOYCOTT THE OLYMPIC GAMES IN CHINA in case PRC will proceed violating principles of democracy and will refuse to bear commitment to ensure Tibet Independence.
We apply to the United Nations asking to intermediate in order Tibet nation might freely realize its inherent right for self-determination.
