Human rights situation in Tibet deteriorating, says NGO | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

The human rights situation in Tibet is deteriorating, particularly death in detention, collective punishment and restrictions imposed on the right to freedom of assembly and association, the annual report of the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) stressed.

It said Tibetan prisoners are subjected to torture, beatings and denial of medical care. "In 2014, an increasing number of Tibetans died because of mistreatment in detention," the 2014 annual report said.

White House welcomes Dalai Lama, China irked | The Raw Story

White House welcomes Dalai Lama, China irked | The Raw Story | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON/BEIJING (Reuters) - China accused the United States on Saturday of "grossly" interfering in its internal affairs and damaging relations after President Barack Obama met exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama at the White House.
Obama met the Nobel Prize laureate for some 45 minutes, praising him for embracing non-violence while reiterating that the United States did not support independence for Tibet.
"(Obama) is naturally showing some concern for basic human values, human rights, religious freedom," the Dalai Lama said after the meeting, according to Saunders. "Naturally, he shows genuine concern about the suffering in Tibet and also other places," she quoted the Dalai Lama as saying.

The Dalai Lama is in Washington for the 11-day Kalachakra ritual, the first time the ritual has been held in the U.S. capital. The days of meditation and teachings aim to inspire inner peace as a means of reducing conflict around the world.

Dharamshala: - In recent years the international community – including the United Nations, European Union, and the US government – has failed to clearly and forcefully raise the issue of human rights during visits to China. This significant issue consistently goes unmentioned in bilateral talks, despite severe human rights violations in Tibet, Eastern Turkestan, and China.

International communities across the world have a long-established demand for respecting human dignity. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, after all, has set a common standard of treatment for mankind since 1948....

Believe me, we together can transform this. A true revolution does not mean violence. It means mobilizing the collective consciousness. Do not be afraid. Tibet can be free, as the non-communist China as well. Time is coming! Be together and full of faith. Freedom and human rights will be the prize. There is a way to get them, but mostly the Prime Minister of Tibet can move it, in name of the State of Tibet in exile, with the International Community pressing positively for.

Tibetan political prisoners held at a facility outside the regional capital Lhasa are routinely subjected to torture and other forms of abuse, often leading to physical harm from which they do not recover, a recently released prisoner said.

“We were tortured every day in the jail,” the man said. “We were sometimes hung from the ceilings, with our hands and legs tied together.”

Tibet claims

“They never fed us regularly. But when they did, they mixed sand in our tsampa [roasted barley flour], which induced thirst, and many of us were forced to drink our own urine.”...
