During his maiden visit to China, President
Barack Obama became the first American President
in history to publicly make an acknowledgment
that "We recognize that Tibet is part of the People's Republic of China."

This recognition of Communist China's spurious
claims of sovereignty over occupied Tibet has
generated a sense of profound disappointment
across the broader Tibetan community and also
among those who cherish values of justice and democracy.

There was a genuine sense of belief that the
President would transfer his message of change,
hope and integrity to America's somewhat tainted
foreign policy. In the weeks prior to President
Obama's trip to China, Tibetans dared to hope
that at last their struggle for freedom and human
rights was strengthened by a statesman whose
commitment to democratic principles and justice
would mean that the rights of the Tibetan people
are not ignored or marginalized.

President Obama has effectively consigned the
Tibetan people to a dangerous and uncertain
future under the mercy of a totalitarian regime
as a so called "ethnic minority."

Our SILENCE will be understood by the world as an
agreement with this statement: "Tibet is a part of China"

If you are outraged...

Join us to SPEAK OUT at a SILENT rally to say No
THANKS this Thanksgiving season for President Obama's misguided statement.

We must urge President Obama to seriously
reconsider his diplomacy on Tibet and lend his
over powering message of hope and change to the Tibetan struggle.

In solidarity. Bhod Gyalo!
