CALLING ALL TIBETANS & SUPPORTERS:
PLEASE SUPPORT A MASS PROTEST AGAINST HU JINTAO IN NEW DELHI!

In a groundbreaking move, Tibetans in India are planning a massive protest in New Delhi during Hu Jintao's visit next week under the banner of the Tibetan People's Movement. As the Chinese President prepares for his first trip to India, Tibetans have an opportunity to tell him what they think of him and China's policies towards Tibet, especially in light of the recent murder of Tibetan refugees at Nangpa Pass. The groundwork for this action is being done by an organizing committee of activists from SFT, Gu Chu Sum, TYC, TWA and NDPT and one of the biggest challenges we face is raising the funds to support this mobilization. We appeal to every Tibetan and supporter who believes that President Hu must hear the voice of the Tibetan people to support this action.

In light of the recent crackdown on Tenzin Tsundue, who has been threatened with deportation if he protests (see http://phayul.com) during Hu's visit, it is clear that Tibetans must send a clear and strong message that it is not just one person advocating for Tibetan freedom. Tibetans must demonstrate that the Tibetan issue is not about one man - it is about 6 million Tibetans suffering every day under Chinese rule.

PLEASE MAKE A PLEDGE TODAY!

Any amount will help but $100 is suggested and will go a long way in India.

Please email back ASAP with your name, location and amount of your pledge. I will send the details of where and how to donate later but first, we need to figure out how much money we can raise.

Thank you for your support in advance. Bod Gyalo!

Sincerely,
Lhadon Tethong
Executive Director
Students for a Free Tibet
