The letter from Desmond Tutu to the Dalai Lama was originally published for signature in 2010. After we reached 10,000 signatures, the letter was closed and delivered.
We re-opened the letter recently at the request of our viewers, who wanted to be able to add their names to the letter. As clearly nothing has changed or advanced on the issue of the Chinese treatment of Tibetan citizens, we are reposting it, with a new target — 120,000 signatures from around the world.
Signatories on the letter have included Nobel Peace Prize winners, internationally recognized artists, activists and people from six continents. Sadly we have lost two of them, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai, and a dedicated Tibet activist, Adam Yauch, in the interim.
See some of the signatories to date here, then add your name.)
