Help us reach our target of 8,000 names
Sign our petition to Wu Aiying, China's Justice Minister...
At least ten singers have been imprisoned by China in Tibet since 2012, joining thousands of other political prisoners in this occupied country.
Many are jailed without explanation and disappear for months on end.
Their families are kept in the dark about their whereabouts and after they are tried and sentenced, the nature of their "crime" may not even be made public.
The United Nations has described torture in Tibet as being "widespread" and "routine".
Tell China's Minister of Justice Wu Aiying to release the following
- Shawo Tashi
- Pema Thinley
- Pema Rigzin
- Achok Phulshung
- Kalsang Yarphel
- Trinley Tsekar
- Gongpo Tsezin
And to ensure that all Tibetans are free to express themselves without fear of punishment.
