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.

Today I would like to make a personal appeal to all Chinese spiritual brothers and sisters, both inside as well as outside the People’s Republic of China, and especially to the followers of the Buddha. I do this as a Buddhist monk and a student of our most revered teacher, the Buddha. I have already made an appeal to the general Chinese community. Here I am appealing to you, my spiritual brothers and sisters, on an urgent humanitarian matter.
