Full text International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

The principle of self-determination It establishes the right of a people under foreign domination to gain independence, join another state or at least to be able to independently choose their own political system.
Some tibetetani They want out China the right to self-determination. The Dalai Lama He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his attitude of extreme pacifism against the oppressors. Do not ask for complete secession, but simply greater autonomy. He put aside the right to self-determination, per love Peace.
While China accuses him of inciting the people to violence.

Not much time ago I had the pleasure to attend a ceremony in honor of His Holiness Dalai Lama.

Dalai Lama

I remember an Italian girl asked:
"Holiness, we organize frequent meetings among young Tibetans and young Italians, here we have many appreciate the Buddhism Tibetan, what do you think?ʱ??
The Dalai Lama he answered:"We would like. But I think the guys Italians should remain true to their tradition. I believe that every people should find himself in their origins,obviously while respecting those of others ".

The request Dalai Lama It is simply to let live the Tibetan people with tradizoni Tibet.
Are arrears? It is not for us to judge. Every people must be free to decide their own future.

Let us remember that the China is the country:

Persecutes practitioners Falun Gong
(to get an idea, It is an activity similar alloYoga)

It has a terrible record for the its internet censorship: (also google is skype They are censored.)

It allows dogs and cats are skinned alive for fur.

if the Chinese government Internet censorship and the press, no reason to think that there are other atrocities that keeps hidden.

In this situation, I think the Chinese people should not be faulted.
Are the state and the Chinese policy that should become more civilian.
Only with pressure from countries that have allowed China to become one of the major economic powers, you can do something.
Probably the development of political and civil China He has not been able to keep the pace of the fast economic development of China in recent 10 years.
Something so can we.
We can "As citizens of the world ask to exercise moderation and respect in dealing with the protests in Tibet and engage constructively with the Dalai Lama to resolve the issue of Tibet. Only dialogue and reform will bring lasting stability. China's future and its relations with the rest of world depend on the harmonious development, dialogue and respect. "
