March 31st, global day of action for Tibet

Monday, March 31, will be a Global Day of Action for Tibet.

Members of Avaaz - the organization that has collected more than a million signatures in the last week calling on Hu Jintao for dialogue with the Dalai Lama - will join Tibet organizations around the world in a Global Day of Action for Tibet. Please go to Tibet Network website to find an event near you.

If you want to see an extraordinary act of defiance, watch the video and you'll see a group of monks disrupt a tightly controlled Chinese government media tour of Lhasa - the only foreign media allowed into Tibet since the national uprising started on March 10th. As dozens of journalists and their government handlers toured the Jokhang temple, thirty monks burst out of a room to tell the journalists that "Tibet is not free" and not to believe China's lies.

As for China's lies, the Chinese government is saying that the Dalai Lama is like Hitler, was a slave owner, and is a serial liar.

Just days after accusing the Dalai Lama of being a slave owner, China's ambassador to Canada is now calling the Tibetan spiritual leader a serial liar.

Lu Shumin also compared Tibet's government -- before the Chinese takeover in 1950 -- to Nazi Germany.

"The Dalai Lama has been telling lies to the world for decades," Lu told journalists at a news conference held Wednesday at the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa.

And if all this is not enough, sources at British spy agency confirm Tibetan claims of staged violence,

LONDON—Britain's GCHQ, the government communications agency that electronically monitors half the world from space, has confirmed the claim by the Dalai Lama that agents of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, the PLA, posing as monks, triggered the riots that have left hundreds of Tibetans dead or injured.

So Chinese spies dressing like monks. Who's lying now?

Please sign the petition, watch the video, support Tibet.
