    HE Hu Jintao, President of ChinaYour Excellency,On behalf of all the
    Tibetans inside and outside Tibet, the Tibetan Parliament in Exile
    wishes to express our deep anguish and concern at the prevailing
    critical situation inside Tibet. As a human being, we are sure you
    will very much understand why people resort to extreme measures such
    as self-immolation. However, the harsh and brutal repressive
    measures adopted by your government on the peaceful demonstrators
    leave us in no doubt that your government has no value for
    fundamental human rights, dignity or lives.As President of PRC, you
    have professed harmonious relationship between nationalities as one
    of the cardinal principles for nation building. However, what you
    said and what is implement is self-contradictory. You very well know
    that Harmony can be built only through mutual understanding and
    trust and not through brute force and repression.China has grown
    economically and militarily over the years and is considered a world
    power to reckon with. Chinas growing influence globally has turned
    itself into a brash and arrogant monster with no regards for others
    sentiments and welfare. Material wealth alone does not bring
    happiness. Development has to go hand in hand with respect for human
    freedom and human dignity. We have heard your leaders, over and over
    again that the western world does not treat China on an equal
    footing. And may we ask, do you treat your nationalities on an equal
    footing? Your leaders quote Confucius Do not do unto others what you
    do not want others to do to you. But do you apply the same
    principles to the Tibetans, Uighurs, Inner Mongolians, Manchurians
    and others?As a world power, you have to earn respect by respecting
    others but not through force. You can earn this moral power only by
    granting basic human rights and resolving conflicts through
    dialogue. That is for the long term benefit of China as a nation and
    Tibetans and others as people. His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the
    Central Tibetan Administration have for several decades taken a very
    pragmatic, mutually beneficial, long lasting solution to the Issue
    of Tibet by not asking for separation. But your leadership has
    always turned a blind eye; stalled dialogue on flimsy grounds and
    expected the Tibet issue to die a natural death. By now, you must
    have realized that the Tibetan spirit remains indomitable and it
    shall remain till a mutually agreeable solution is found.Every time,
    Tibetans manifest their frustration by way of peaceful protest,
    instead of looking into the causes of these incidences, your
    government has always chosen to clamp down violently. Any human
    rights violations by the State are cloaked under national security
    barring transparent and independent investigation. For the larger
    and long term interest of China and Tibet, we urge you to undertake
    the following1. Withdraw the large reinforcement of military to
    reduce tension immediately and take measures to give due
    consideration to the aspirations of the Tibetan people.2. Allow
    independent, non-partisan fact finding delegations to ascertain the
    ground realities. If you have issues with that, allow a Tibetan fact
    finding delegation to visit Tibet.3. Stop the policies and programs
    aimed at destroying the identity of the Tibetan people. Provide
    religious freedom and undertake reconciliation measures to assuage
    the hurt sentiments of the Tibetan people.4. Stop sedentarization of
    Tibetan nomads and include Tibetan participation in environmental
    stewardship by using their centuries old wisdom of having lived on
    the Tibetan Plateau. 5. All developmental activities in Tibet must
    give due consideration to Tibets fragile environment and should
    accrue due benefit to the native Tibetans.6. Release all political
    prisoners including Panchen Rinpoche Gedun Choekyi Nyima, just as
    Burma did so to create more trust between the people and the
    government.7. Resume dialogue with the Tibetans with the commitment
    and conviction to seek a lasting solution to the Issue of Tibet, and
    peace and stability in the whole geo-strategic region.Given the
    present day realities and the interdependence of the globalized
    world, it is high time that your government give serious
    consideration to a peaceful transformation of China that provides
    freedom, respect and dignity to all. Otherwise, the day may not be
    far when the Chinese nation and its people become victims of its own
    creation. That will be the saddest moment in Chinese history.We
    express the above sentiments with hope in our hearts that positive
    sense will prevail over you and your colleagues and immediately
    respond to the legitimate concerns. failing which you and your
    government will be held solely responsible for any adverse
    consequences if the matters are not addressed in a humane way.
    Sincerely,Tibetan Parliament in Exile
