Dharamshala, India — The 17th Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile concluded its fourth session on September 16, 2022, with seven solidarity resolutions related to the critical situation in Tibet. The Speaker of the Parliament urged everyone to raise the issue of Tibet on the international platform and make the world aware of the urgent situation in Tibet.
Dharamshala — “It does not bear mentioning that we the Tibetan people living in exile have been fortunate to be enjoying freedom and democracy under the leadership and guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Nevertheless, we remain intensely mindful of the fact that to our fellow Tibetans living in Tibet, life under the rule of the Communist Party of China is still defined by continuous deprivation of basic human rights and freedoms, and total absence of democracy and so forth,” said Speaker of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile on the 62nd Tibetan Democracy Day.
