On August 12th, Chinese forces fired on a group of unarmed Tibetans in Tibet. At least 5 have died and many others are critically injured and remain without medical access.
The group was peacefully protesting for the release of their village leader Wangdak, who had been arrested on August 11th for defending the rights of the Tibetans to celebrate their traditional horse festival and speaking out against the harassment of Tibetan women by senior Chinese officials.
China's crackdown in Kardze is tense and residents remain under heavily armed surveillance while Tibetan men (aged 12 and above) are being arrested.
Sign the Petition to urge the world's top 20 most democratic governments to call on China to end the violence in Kardze and take joint action to resolve the crisis in Tibet.
Please urge China to stop shooting Tibetans in Kardze (Ganzi)
