TIBET'S WATER AND GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE
The International Campaign for Tibet champions the cause of the Tibetan people throughout the world.
The Co-Chairs of the United State Congress’ Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, Representatives James P. McGovern and Joseph R. Pitts have expressed concern at the demolition and related action at the Tibetan Buddhist institute of Larung Gar saying “these actions by Chinese authorities clearly violate the religious freedom of the persons affected and the Tibetan community at large.”
In a letter to the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, dated October 19, 2016, they said, "We strongly urge your government to reverse course, stop the demolitions and evictions, rebuild and restore the affected infrastructure, and permit all those people under Chinese jurisdiction who wish to pursue their Buddhist faith to do so without government interference or "guidance.""
