Violence In Tibet

March 27, 2008

The violence in Tibet sparked by their desire for emancipation from China, which seeks to remain unified, has left dozens dead. I would like to urge the Chinese government to seek a peaceful way to resolve this dispute, as loss of life is always a sad event.

Let peace be the order of the day.

Residents of Luhuo said that a monk and a farmer appeared to have been killed and about a dozen people wounded in the latest violence in Tibetan areas of China.
