So let’s get this right shall we..the Tibetan Youth Congress and Students For Free Tibet welcome and support the idea of U-Tsang being recognized as independent but not Amdo or Kham?
What on earth has happened to the Tibetan movement? Have the TYC and SFT forgotten the sacrifices and political aspirations from Tibetans across all three of Tibet’s regions? Well if so it looks like we are are the only activist network in solidarity with national independence for Chol-ka-Sum.
According to a SFT report: “This bill represents a historic milestone for the Tibetan people who have struggled for freedom and independence from China for the last 70 years and it will go down in history as an important moment when the American people recognized Tibet’s legitimate claim to independence,” said Gonpo Dhundup, President, Tibetan Youth Congress.
While H.R.6948 refers to the “Tibet Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China,” Students for a Free Tibet and the Tibetan Youth Congress have engaged with Congressman Perry’s office to request that he amend this language so as to include the whole of Tibet, not just the TAR. “.
The key question for those organizations is this: will they still be publicly applauding and backing the Congressman’s bill if he refuses to change the wording??
