'I am a supporter of globalization' His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Getting to the Dalai Lama is a long and treacherous journey. The religious leader and Tibet's head of state lives in exile at the foot of the Himalayas, two hours north of New Dehli by airplane. Here in Dharamshala his residence lies on an idyllic hill, right next to a Buddhist temple. Those who want to get to him must go through strict controls performed by both Indian as well as Tibetan security guards. Even bare fingers are patted down.

Britain will pressure China before Tibet talk

Dharamshala: Three representatives of the UK support parliament for Tibet have been in Dharamsala since 6th September in talks with the government-in-exile, various NGO’S, as well as the exiled Tibetan people. The UK support parliament fully recognized the ‘appalling abuse of human rights’ that the Tibetan people have suffered under Chinese oppression, and complimented the ‘passion and enthusiasm’ of the Tibetan cause. The representatives, each from separate UK parliamentary parties, emphasized the importance of a united front to put pressure on China to settle Tibet’s ‘achievable and reasonable requests’ to democratic rights. Britain has also promised that international support for Tibet is a here to stay beyond the spotlight provided by the Beijing Olympics. 2009 was identified as a significant year, as it is both the 50th anniversary of His Holiness’ flight into exile, and the 50th anniversary of China’s ‘stone-walling’ of any meaningful negotiation with Tibet.
