FEDERAL MP Warren Entsch has long counted himself a ‘friend of Tibet’ and was thrilled to meet the Dalai Lama in Canada last year during a parliamentary delegation.
Mr Entsch is urging Far North Queenslanders who are concerned about deteriorating human rights conditions in Tibet to sign a petition urging the Australian Government to;
· Make a strong public statement of concern over the situation facing Tibetan people;
· Renew efforts to send the Ambassador in Beijing and a parliamentary delegation to areas affected by the protests and urge China to allow foreign journalists unfettered access to all Tibetan areas; and
· Join other concerned countries in an intergovernmental forum dedicated to building stronger international pressure on China to address the crisis in Tibet

Please ensure all signed petitions are returned to the address at the bottom of the petition by 4th March.
