QUOTE FROM HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA

 

Tibet - an ancient nation with a unique culture and civilization - is disappearing fast. In endeavoring to protect my nation from this castastrophe, I have always sought to be guided by realizm, moderation, and patience. I have tried in every way I know to find some mutually acceptable solution in the spirit of reconciliation and compromise. However, it has now become clear that our efforts alone are not sufficient to bring the Chinese government to the negotiating table. This sad state of affairs compels me to appeal to your government and the international community for urgent intervention and action on behalf of my people...

For our part, Tibetans will continue our non-violent struggle for freedom... We will resist the use of violence as an expression of the desperation which many Tibetans feel. As long as I lead our freedom struggle, there will be no deviation from the path of non-violence.

His Holiness The Dalai Lama
