Nyhetsbrev Den norske Tibet-komité – september 2016

Til tross for protester fra Tibet-støttespillere verden over, har de kinesiske myndigheter ikke stoppet ødeleggelsen av Larung Gar senteret. Fra den siste oppdateringen vi har om saken skal mange blant de tvangsflyttede nonner og munker ha blitt påbudt å undertegne to brev hvor de samtykker til ikke å vende tilbake til Larung Gar, samt forplikte seg til å gjennomgå såkalt patriotisk omskolering.

For litt over en uke siden startet den såkalte Tibet-kommisjonen i Danmark, hvor 58 personer skal avhøres i saken om mulige brudd på ytringsfriheten i Danmark. Demonstranter med tibetanske flagg ble under kinesiske statsbesøk i 2012 samt i 2013 og 2014 fratatt eller forsøkt avskjermet av politiet. En slik handling fra politiet er et inngrep i lovlige demonstranters ytrings – og forsamlingsfrihet, men hvem ga ordren til politiet?

En høyt respektert munk og intellektuell, kjent som Labrang Jigme, ble i slutten av oktober løslatt etter fem år i fengsel. Jigme Guri, som han egentlig heter, ble arrestert etter å publisert en video hvor han snakker ut om de kinesiske myndigheters politiske retningslinjer mot Dalai Lama. Han har tidligere vært arrestert for kortere perioder i 2006 og 2008.

Under sitt London-besøk uttalte Tibets statsminister i eksil, Dr. Lobsang Sangay, håp om at den kinesiske politikken vil endre seg og at tibetanere vil oppnå grunnleggende frihet.

Støttemarkering for Larung Gar – onsdag 19.10

I juni 2016 startet de kinesiske myndigheter den massive ødeleggelsen av Larung Gar, som er en av de største tibetansk buddhistiske sentrene i verden. Larung Gar senteret ligger i Sichuan provinsen i dagens Kina, som er et tibetansk område. De kinesiske myndigheter har satt seg som mål å redusere antall monker og nonner som studerer buddhisme ved Larung Gar. I følge de kinesiske myndigheter er overbefolkning årsaken bak den voldelige nedrivingen. Likevel tas ikke i bruk denne løsningen på andre overbefolkede områder i Kina. Dette kan heller ses som en del av de kinesiske myndigheters årevis lange ødeleggelse av tibetansk kultur og språk i forsøket på å assimilere tibetanere inn i det større Kina. Larung Gar har tidligere også vært utsatt for ødeleggelse, men denne gangen har de kinesiske

myndigheter satt seg som mål å redusere antall innbyggere helt ned til 5000 innen slutten av oktober, noe som innebærer at 60 til 70 prosent av monker og nonner vil miste sine hjem og bli tvunget til å flytte. Den massive ødeleggelsen har innen kort tid også kostet flere tid. Til nå har det blitt rapportert tre kjente selvmordstilfeller, begått av nonner. Larung Gar et er fredelig sted som lenge har vært hjem til nonner og munker som praktiserer buddhisme. I tillegg er Larung Gar et av de viktigste stedene i dagens Kina i bevaringen av tibetansk buddhisme og kultur. 19. oktober 2016 er den internasjonale støttedagen for Larung Gar. Dagen forventes å bli markert av Tibet støttegrupper verden over. Den norske Tibet-komité kommer til å holde stand på Egertorget mellom kl. 17.00 til 19.00 for å spre informasjon om den pågående ødeleggelsen av Larung Gar og for å samle inn signaturer til den pågående underskriftskampanjen for Larung Gar. Møt opp!

Nyima Lhamo, nevøen til den avdøde Tulku Tenzin Delek Rinponche rømte inntil eksil, India i juli 2016 med målet om å fortelle verden den virkelige årsaken bak Tulku Tenzin Delek Rinponches død. I Tibet har hun etterlatt seg sin gamle mor og sin seks år gamle datter velvitende om at hun kanskje aldri vil kun dra tilbake til Tibet. I følge Nyima Lhamo og hennes familie døde Tulku Tenzin Delek Rinponche som et resultat av tortur i fengsel og ikke hjerteinfarkt slik de kinesiske myndigheter har lagt fram.

In this Wednesday, July 27, 2016 photo, Nyima Lhamo, 26, speaks about her uncle Tenzin Delek Rinpoche, a prominent Tibetan religious leader who died in prison last year, during an interview with the Associated Press in Dharmsala, India. The price of Lhamo’s escape was 65000 yuans (approximately 9700 USD), which she had to pay to an intermediary, but on a more personal level she had to leave her aging mother and a six-year-old daughter, whom she may never see again. “It was necessary as the story of my uncle had to be told to the world. We don’t trust what China is telling us and demand a thorough investigation into his death,” she told the Associated Press speaking through two translators. (AP Photo/Ashwini Bhatia) Nyima Lhamo

Solidarity demonstration

Location : Tuengen allé 2B , Vinderen , Oslo
Time: Friday 16 May from 15.30 to 16.00

China’s grip in Asia is bigger and stronger than ever. Aggressive policies against several small countries around leads to insecurity and tension in Asia.

The Norwegian Tibet Committee has been asked by the Vietnamese community in and around Oslo to take part in a demonstration in front of the Chinese Embassy this Friday 15.30 to 16.00 .

The purpose is to protest against China’s aggression in Asia and their restriction of the territory of neighbouring countries.

We on the Board believe that it is extremely important that all the small countries affected by China’s policy stand together and show a united front against China. That way we can show our solidarity with others who feel China’s iron grip.

We encourage everyone who can to meet up outside the Chinese Embassy on Friday – it’s only a half hour, but it’s important to stand together!

We’ll be there!

Press release – Answer to governments decision not to meet the Dalai Lama

The Norwegian Tibet Committee received yesterday the response from the Foreign Ministry to its request to the Foreign Minister and the Prime Minister to meet with the Dalai Lama. Foreign Minister responded that because there has been no political contact between Norway and China it will “not be right for Norwegian authorities to meet the Dalai Lama.”

The Norwegian Tibet Committee understands that this has been a difficult assessment to the government, but is disappointed with the decision and rationale.

– It is very unfortunate that the Foreign Ministry and the government has taken this decision. This shows that it pays to be rowdy when facing small countries and that China’s technique to punish other so-called independent nations seems working. Split and conquer still works, says leader of Tibet Committee, Tsomo Svenningsen.

The human rights situation in Tibet is worse than for many years. Over 130 Tibetans in recent years have set themselves on fire in protest against Chinese discrimination policy. Many of those who have immolated themselves also ask for the Dalai Lama to return to Tibet. Tibet Committee believes that it is especially important now that the world show their support for Tibet and the Tibet issue.

The Norwegian Tibet Committee is very pleased to see the great popular enthusiasm surrounding the Dalai Lama’s visit. We hope that people can use their commitment also to encourage their members of Parliament from all parties, including parliamentary president, to meet the Dalai Lama in Parliament.

HH Dalai Lama in Oslo, May 2014!

We have the great pleasure to announce that the Dalai Lama is coming to Oslo in May. He comes at the invitation of Karma Tashi Ling, Nobel Institute and The Norwegian Tibet Committee at the occasion of 25th anniversary of receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.

Tsering Woeser awarded 2013 International Women of Courage Award

Tsering Woeser awarded 2013 International Women of Courage Award.

Tsering Woeser Tibetan author, poet, and blogger living in Beijing, Honored with the 2013 International Women of Courage Award by the US State Department

The State Department said in a press release: “In a period marked by increasing self-immolations and protests in Tibetan areas of China, Tsering Woeser has emerged as the most prominent Mainland activist speaking out publicly about human rights conditions for China’s Tibetan citizens. Born in Lhasa, Tsering Woeser’s website, Invisible Tibet, together with her poetry and non-fiction and her embrace of social media platforms like Twitter, have given voice to millions of ethnic Tibetans who are prevented from expressing themselves to the outside world due to government efforts to curtail the flow of information. Despite the constant surveillance of security agents and routinely being placed under house arrest during periods deemed to be politically sensitive, Tsering Woeser bravely persists in documenting the situation for Tibetans, noting that “to bear witness is to give voice to,” and asserting that “the more than 100 Tibetans who have expressed their desire to resist the forces of oppression by bathing their bodies in fire are the reason why I will not give up, and why I will not compromise.”

Norwegain Tibet Committee would like to congratulate Tsering Woeser for getting this honor in recognition of her courage and dedication to the cause of Tibet.

Unfortunately she will be not able to come to USA to receive the award. She has been denied travel outside China and denied passport.

Pressrelease 4.03.2013

More than 27 Tibetan Community Associations, representing European citizens of Tibetan origin from across Europe, are organizing a mass solidarity rally in Brussels on 10 March 2013 to commemorate the 54th Tibetan National Uprising Day of 1959.

Nearly 5,000 Tibetans from several European countries and friends of Tibet from different parts of Europe are expected to converge in Brussels on 10 March to express their solidarity with Tibetans inside Tibet, highlight the tragic situation and the self-immolation crisis in Tibet and seek support of the European Union and its Member States for the non-violent freedom struggle of the Tibetan people.

On that day, a grand peace march will start from Gare du Nord at 11.30 a.m and will culminate at Le Mont des Arts in Brussels city centre where a mass rally will be held throughout the afternoon (1.30/2 pm). A wide range of guest speakers from the Central Tibetan Administration, the European Parliament and prominent personalities from Europe will address the rally. On 7 and 8 March, young Tibetan activists and friends of Tibet will engage in lobbying at the European Parliament to apprise them of the current situation inside Tibet and to call upon them to engage in practical steps to support the issue of Tibet.

Since 2009, 107 Tibetans have set themselves on fire in protest against the Chinese government’s repressive policies in Tibet. The most recent were two young Tibetans Tsesung Kyab and Phagmo Dhondup who self-immolated on 24 and 25 February 2013. The messages these protesters have left behind are testaments to their motivations and aspirations of freedom for the Tibetan people and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet.

Restive areas of Tibet are being kept under strict military control and journalists, tourists and other visitors are not allowed to visit Tibet. Criminal prosecutions are being carried out to target the families and friends of those self-immolating. It is evident that Beijing is attempting to contain this new force of resistance through ever more draconian measures.

The spate of self-immolations in Tibet is one of the most drastic forms of political protests the world has witnessed in the past 60 years. We still continue to see no end to it. In response, Chinese government continues to blame His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the outside forces for these acts of self immolations, and continues to impose hard line policies of repressions on the Tibetan people which further fuel dissent and cause such drastic acts of protests by the Tibetans. The self-immolations expose a crisis in the Beijing leadership’s Tibet policy and there is an urgent need for a fundamental change in its approach vis-a vis Tibet.

The European Parliament has adopted an impressive number of resolutions on Tibet and the EU’s High Representative, Lady Ashton, has also issued statements expressing deep concern about the violations of human rights in Tibet and displaying support and solidarity with the people of Tibet. We greatly value the support and are deeply grateful for the expression of concern, support and solidarity by the European Union. However, what has been lacking so far are sustained and coordinated efforts with a clear political strategy and agenda. The EU-China Human Rights dialogue has failed to produce any tangible results in the past 17 years since the start of this dialogue in 1995. During this period the human rights situation in China in general and particularly in Tibet has worsened significantly.

We, therefore, appeal to the European Union and its Member States to:

  • Urge China to review its failed hardline policies in Tibet and address the genuine grievances of the Tibetan people by resolving the issue of Tibet through dialogue.
  • Urge China to allow unfettered access to Tibet for the media, the United Nations and International fact-finding delegations to investigate and report on the real causes behind the self-immolations;
  • To instruct EU Special Representative for Human Rights to seek access to Tibet and to undertake a fact-finding mission to Tibetan areas on a priority basis;
  • To appoint an EU Special Coordinator for Tibetan Affairs with the primary task of encouraging and facilitating a dialogue between the envoys of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Chinese government with the aim of finding a mutually acceptable peaceful resolution of the issue of Tibet;

Norwegian Tibet committee’s Youth Section

Norwegian Tibet committee’s Youth Section

Short background

The Youth Section began with an individual’s involvement. Hallvard Strømsnes came across Tibet Committee stand at Karl Johans gate, Oslo and got a glimse of situation in Tibet through committee members. Thereafter, Strømsnes, along with several of his young friends engaged themselve in Tibet issue and participated in demonstrations with the Committee. After this, these enthusiastic youths in Norway came in closer association to the Committee and its members. Number of youths interested in Tibet issue increased rapidly in number and it continued to increase. Therefore, it was felt a need of a concrete organisation to raise the issue. Finally they came to the conclusion that they should create their own youth organization under Norwegian Tibet Committee. It was in autumn 2012, group of Norwegian youths dedicated to do something for the just cause of Tibet, created a youth Organisation with Strømsnes as a leader.

Goals and Aims of the Tibet Committee’s Youth Section

Tibet Committee’s youth Section’s main goal is to create awareness about situation in Tibet among Norwegain people. We believe that the issue gets far too little attention today, not only from politicians, but from the media and the people in general. Conditions in Tibet are unacceptable, and this needs to be known to the people. Therefore, we have a goal to pass the information on. We plan to create a debate among people through newspaper articles and actions. This will draw the attention of the people on the case and make it relevant. Thus, it will make it easier to national newspapers to write about the oppression of the Tibetan people.

We have previously demonstrated in front of the Chinese Embassy, and now set up a publicity committee, so that we can work more concentrated on getting attention around our message. We believe that everyone has the right to freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, culture and democracy, and this basic freedom is denied to the Tibetans.

What we do on Tibet committee’s youth section’s meetings?

We are working to improve conditions in Tibet and we are under the Norwegian Tibet Committee. We have over 80 members with steadily increasing number. At the meetings, we often have speakers. we had invited Oystein Alme from the radio station “Voice of Tibet”, who spoke about what they do to improve situation in Tibet. At the meetings, we also plan demonstrations and actions about how we can get awareness about Tibet. We divides the youth in several committees during the meetings. Among other things, we have creative ways to create and organize our website, and a public-relations committee that is working to raise awareness about Tibet. The meetings are often sections with brainstorming where we discuss and debate what we can do to achieve our goals. Meetings are also social and we work a lot with a good team spirit among members of the organization.

Tibet Committee’s youth section, something for you?

Youth is an open and inclusive congregation that is extremely positive to new members. We think it’s always fun with new faces, and there is no obligation to come to a meeting. Seems like something for you, or are you are just curious? Come to our next membership!
