Multilateral

Multilateral

The Multilateral campaign has been devised to increase coordinated action by World Governments to address the crisis situation in Tibet. The campaign is known publicly as Stand Up For Tibet.   The main objectives of the Campaign are:  

  1. To raise awareness of public calls for multilateral mechanisms to be set up, and ask governments to discuss a more public multilateral response to the situation in Tibet (like forming a Contact Group).
  2. To increase the number of governments raising Tibet with China and within multilateral fora such as the UNGA and UN Human Rights Council
  3. To send a message to Chinese government that the Tibet movement is strong, visible, active and well organised.
  4. To increase political pressure on China to agree dates for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to visit China and Tibet.

    The Spanish Lawsuits on Tibet, filed by Comite de Apoyo al Tibet (CAT) saw dramatic developments in late 2013, with former President Hu Jintao being indicted on charges of genocide, and arrest warrants ordered for another former President, Jiang Zemin and 4 other leaders. However, the Spanish Government is now threatening to shut these suits down. See Resources below:
