I am very concerned about the ongoing oppression of the Tibetan people by the Chinese Government. Chinese human rights abuses are well documented. The most recent U.S. human rights report finds that China's "record of respect for religious freedom in Tibet [has] deteriorated," political dissent is "not tolerated at any time," and dissent is "promptly and forcibly suppressed." A recent Amnesty International report found that torture is used routinely.
It is clear to me that Chinese actions in Tibet violate international standards of human rights. The United States must pressure China to respect the autonomy of Tibet and end its crackdown on religious expression.
