“Leaders around the world have called for the Chinese government to take steps to end its crackdown on peaceful Tibetans and enter into a dialogue with his Holiness the Dalai Lama, and now the House of Representative will have the opportunity to join the international chorus of calls for peace and freedom.

“The cause of Tibet is a challenge to the conscience of the world. For far too long, the Tibetan people have suffered due to the repressive policies of the Chinese government as they have sought the basic human rights and dignity to which all people of the world are entitled.

“I look forward to the House making a powerful and unified statement in support of the fundamental freedom and dignity of the Tibetan people at this critical time.”

Pelosi continues to be the clear leader in the US government when it comes to responding  the ongoing situation in Tibet. Thank you again Speaker Pelosi for continuing to fight for human rights and freedom for Tibet.
