Rangzen

"'Free Tibet' means Independence. 'Tibet is not a part of China' means Independence. 'Middle way approach' doesn't work at all. 'Genuine autonomy' doesn't work at all. More than 50 years of Massacre and Cultural Genocide prove it." (Flávio Marcondes Velloso, professor)
 
Dear Friends,
 
Congratulations for the Tibetan National Congress, The Forging Rangzen Strategy, November 30th, 2013, Livestream, which watched with great interest. I suggest that the next may have simultaneous translation into English!

 
So… RANGZEN! 

 
Believe me, we together can transform this. A true revolution does not mean violence. It means mobilizing the collective consciousness. Do not be afraid. Tibet can be free, as the non-communist China as well. Time is coming! Be together and full of faith. Freedom and human rights will be the prize. There is a way to get them, but mostly the Prime Minister of Tibet can move it, in name of the State of Tibet in exile, with the International Community pressing positively for. 

 
WE NEED TO GO TO THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE, THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS. A REPOSSESSION CLAIM OF THE TIBETAN TERRITORY IS THE PATH! WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN DONE! 

 
Please see my Open Letter, at Partido Budista Brasileiro, in Facebook too. 

 
The time is now! It is time for the Snow Lion...

 
Time for the International Community to stop, once and for all, the genocide of an entire Nation.

 
Time for You to go to the International Court of Justice. This is the only possible way, and place, where we will have a real dialogue with China. We are talking about the most important judicial organ at the United Nations, this Peaceful Palace located at the heart of the peaceful city of Hague in the Netherlands. The only capital in the World, known for its history in peaceful international settlements, for territorial and boundary disputes. And, therefore, this will be how to achieve the fullness of Human Rights, as a consequence implicit in the act.

 
Time to constitute a team of experts in International Public Law. The best possible team, to claim and demand for Justice, which means a repossession claim of the Tibetan territory, to bring back His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His people to a Free Tibet and, consequently, the prompt reinstatement of the Human Rights, further declaring that the continued presence of China in Tibet will be illegal and must be terminated as soon as possible.

 
As His Holiness has said, only the dialogue will solve that question and it can no longer wait for a good faith dialogue coming from China. It is an absolute reality that no dialogue would be possible at this time without the presence of the International Court of Justice, as mentioned above. Regardless, this is an action that only Tibet can do it! No one can do it in its place!

 
After all this, Tibet could be considered a Humankind World Heritage by the United Nations, and begin to shine with dignity and self-existence.

 
I also believe that His Holiness the Dalai Lama should lead, be the voice of the Chinese non-communists, speaking to them since now, in the media, giving the hope of better days, with His universal message of peace, freedom, brotherhood and compassion. No one better than HHDL to play this role on behalf of Universal Love. With positive result, in the same process, for the Tibetan cause.

 
Tibet needs more and more political leaders. Tibet needs help to be rebuilt. Tibet needs independence.

I remain at your disposal.

 
Yours sincerely,

OPEN LETTER TO PRIME MINISTER OF TIBET

Dear Sir Kalon Tripa, Sikyong Lobsang Sangay,

The time is now! It is time for the Snow Lion...

Time for the International Community to stop, once and for all, the genocide of an entire Nation.

Time for You to go to the International Court of Justice. This is the only possible way, and place, where we will have a real dialogue with China. We are talking about the most important judicial organ at the United Nations, this Peaceful Palace located at the heart of the peaceful city of Hague in the Netherlands. The only capital in the World, known for its history in peaceful international settlements, for territorial and boundary disputes. And, therefore, this will be how to achieve the fullness of Human Rights, as a consequence implicit in the act.

The best possible team, to claim and demand for Justice, which means a repossession claim of the Tibetan territory, to bring back His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His people to a Free Tibet and, consequently, the prompt reinstatement of the Human Rights, further declaring that the continued presence of China in Tibet will be illegal and must be terminated as soon as possible.

Lobsang Sangay is the New Political Leader of Tibet

Congratulations Mr. Lobsang Sangay!
Congratulations Mr. Tenzin N. Tethong!
Congratulations Mr. Tashi Wangdi!
Congratulations Tibet!

----- Original Message -----
From: F. Marcondes Velloso
To: His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Sent: Friday, March 11, 2011 9:00 AM
Subject: To His Holiness the Dalai Lama ...

"Give me your tired, your poor / Your
huddled masses yearning to breathe
free. / The wretched refuse of your
teeming shore. / Send these, the
homeless, tempest tossed to me, / I lift my
lamp beside the golden door!"

(Emma Lazarus, in "The New Colossus",
a sonnet written in 1883,
that is now engraved on a bronze plaque
on a wall in the base of the Statue of Liberty.)

To His Holiness the Dalai Lama:

Time call us to go to the International Court of Justice. This is the only possible way, and place, where we will have a real dialogue with China.

We are talking about the most important judicial organ at the United Nations, this Peaceful Palace located at the heart of the peaceful city of Hague in the Netherlands. The only capital in the World, known for its history in peaceful international settlements, for territorial and boundary disputes.

The Buddhist religion and philosophy plays a prominent role in the spiritual, cultural and social lives of most of the Eastern world, therefore, the Tibetan State cannot simply disappear!

With that in mind, now is time to constitute a team of experts in International Public Law. The best possible team, to claim and demand for Justice, which means a repossession claim of the Tibetan territory, to bring back His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his people to a Free Tibet and, consequently, the prompt reinstatement of his possession, further declaring that the continued presence of China in Tibet will be illegal and must be terminated as soon as possible.

All the States Members of the United Nations should refrain any acts that implies the recognition and the legality of China's presence in the Tibetan territory, and that such regulation should also be extended to all the States, which are not Members of the United Nations, contributing in action to the subsequent independence of Tibet.

It's time for the International Community to stop, once and for all, the genocide of an entire Nation. The Peaceful State called Tibet.

São Paulo, the 14th of March, 2011

Regardless, this is an action that only TIBET can do it! No one can do it in its place!

After all this, Tibet could be considered a Humankind World Heritage by the United Nations, and begin to shine with dignity and self-existence.

Taking Action

"If peaceful protests and non-violent struggle still has a place in this world, then the governments and international agencies, human rights bodies must stand up for Tibet, protect the lives of the Tibetan people and thereby resolve the long standing injustices being inflicted on Tibet and its people for the last 52 years." (Kirti Dolkar Lhamo, by The Tibetan Youth Congress, Tibetan Women's Association, Gu-Chu-Sum movement of Tibet, Students for a Free Tibet, The National Democratic Party of Tibet, in The Tibet Post, Thursday, 07 April 2011, http://tibetparaomundo.blogspot.com)

Tibet will be free!

Liderança e Discernimento

Sua Santidade o Dalai Lama reitera que seguirá fazendo sua parte na causa pela Liberdade do Tibete
.
Ao oficializar pedido de afastamento do cargo de Chefe de Estado, o Parlamento do Tibete deverá adotar reformas para eleger o seu sucessor, pelo povo. Sua Santidade o Dalai Lama enfatiza que seguirá fazendo sua parte na causa pela Liberdade do Tibete. Ao anunciar a intenção de declinar do cargo, o Dalai Lama garantiu que não se sente "desanimado" nem pretende "se esquivar de responsabilidades", e que prosseguirá, agora mais do que nunca, desenvolvendo o seu trabalho pela "causa justa do Tibete".
.
O líder tibetano pediu formalmente ao Parlamento do Tibete que adote reformas democráticas para nomear um representante eleito que permita ao líder espiritual, separadamente, renunciar a seu papel político. "Nenhum sistema de governo pode assegurar estabilidade e progresso se depender de uma única pessoa, sem apoio e participação do povo nesse mesmo processo político. O Governo de uma só pessoa é anacrônico e indesejável", afirmou Sua Santidade em mensagem enviada ao Parlamento.
.
O Parlamento tibetano, no exílio, situado na cidade indiana de Dharamsala, terá agora que deliberar sobre a mensagem em sessão no Parlamento, de acordo com informação à Agência Efe de um porta-voz do Dalai Lama, Tenzin Talkha.
.
O líder espiritual dos tibetanos anunciou que pretende entregar seu poder político de Chefe de Estado a um sucessor "livremente eleito" pelo seu povo, permanecendo, contudo, à frente de sua liderança espiritual.

. O anúncio foi feito no 52º aniversário do Levante contra a invasão e ocupação da China em seu território, desde então.
.
No comunicado, o líder tibetano rendeu tributo tanto aos que lutaram em 1959 contra a invasão e opressão chinesas como aos que participaram das manifestações ocorridas há três anos, em protesto no mesmo sentido. Nessa ocasião, o constante genocídio cultural e massacre da China causou novamente incontáveis mortes e torturas, levando a causa tibetana de volta ao cenário da Comunidade Internacional, frente aos inaceitáveis atos de total desrespeito aos Direitos Humanos Universais e ao Direito Internacional.
.
O Dalai Lama também manifestou sua admiração à "notável luta não-violenta pela liberdade e a democracia" nos países do mundo árabe, e disse esperar que "essas mudanças inspiradoras conduzam à liberdade, à felicidade e à prosperidade genuínas de seus povos".
.
Vale lembrar e rever a obra prima de Richard Attenborough, Gandhi, para que, de fato, o seu triunfo continue a mudar o mundo para sempre.
.
Depois de lamentar que os tibetanos vivam "com temor e ansiedade constantes", sob a opressão chinesa, ele ainda propôs que uma delegação internacional possa visitar o Tibete para comprovar a realidade de seu povo.
.
"Desde a década de 1960, manifestei que os tibetanos necessitam de um líder livremente eleito pelo povo tibetano, a quem eu possa delegar o poder. Agora, claramente, chegou o momento de colocar isso em prática".

Dalai Lama: Liberdade para o Tibete

"O diálogo é a única forma sensata e inteligente de resolver as diferenças e os choques de interesses, seja em nível individual ou nacional. A promoção desta cultura da não-violência e do diálogo é um verdadeiro desafio para a comunidade internacional, se desejar assegurar o futuro da Humanidade. Não é suficiente que os governos apoiem o princípio da não-violência sem passos concretos para a sua realização. Para que a não-violência prevaleça, devemos criar condições que permitam o sucesso de movimentos não-violentos, bem como a sua eficiência. Alguns consideram que o século XX acabou por ser o século das guerras e do derramamento de sangue. Já agora eu acredito que estamos perante o desafio de transformar este novo século na era do diálogo e da não-violência."

(Dalai Lama in "Liberdade para o Tibete: Uma Mensagem de Compaixão e Tolerância", Editora Pergaminho, 1ª edição, 104 páginas, ISBN 9789727118984, Lisboa, 2010)
