Tibetans met with 42 politicians

Thank you to all our supporters from across the country and the entire Tibet Advocacy Day team.   12 Tibetans met with 42 MPs and Senators from all parties on 17 March. They shared their perspectives on the situation in Tibet through their own and their families’ experiences and called for stronger political support from the Australian Parlaiment and Government. Together they gathered 36 signatures to a Statement of Support for Tibet. On 18 March, Australia Tibet Council delivered the statement to the Foreign Minister. With the statement signed by an overwhelming number of politicians, we have demonstrated to the Government the growing level of parliamentary support for Tibet and called for stronger action.
