international campaignforTIBETannual report2003


In 2003 ICT also celebratedits 15th anniversary. I amtremendously proud of whatwe have accomplished,despite the huge tasks still ahead of us.Our achievements are due to an exceptionallycommitted community of Tibetans,ICT staff, Board of Directors and membership.We are continually inspired bythe Dalai Lama and the Tibetans people,especially those inside Tibet who arefighting on innumerable fronts to maintaintheir identity and dignity, and to securetheir rights.A personal highlight for me in 2003was our Light of Truth awards, when wehonored three activists for their contributionsand commitment to raisingawareness of the Tibet issue: MicheleBohana, former Congressman BenjaminGilman and Professor Robert Thurman.After the Dalai Lama presented the awards,Ngawang Sangdrol closed the eveningwith a song that she had written and sungin prison, and for which her sentence wasextended another six years:Land of Snow, Land of SnowMy beloved countryThe root-soul of the nation is Tenzin GyatsoIf each and every Tibetan unites,One day, the sun will appear from behind the clouds.The sun will appear from behind the clouds.Thank you for helping Ngawang Sangdrolto be able to sing this song in freedom -and for all of your support for this greatorganization.Sincerely,John Ackerly,President3


crossing the line:china’s railway line to lhasaIn 2003, ICT published an in-depth report finding that the railwayChina is constructing across the Tibetan Plateau to Lhasa isbeing built mainly for political reasons and not to benefit theTibetan people, as the Chinese government consistently claims.The 70-page study analyzes the economics of transportation,and demonstrate through interviews with transportationexperts and the use of satellite imagery the negative consequencesfor the Tibetans of the railway.ICT report,Crossing the Line:China’s Railwayto Lhasa, Tibet.Recently releasedpolitical prisonerNgawang Sangdrolraises a pictureof the Dalai Lamaafter arriving inWashington, DC,on March 8.political prisonersThe U.S. government’s decision not to sponsor a resolutioncritical of China at the 2003 meeting of the U.N. Human RightsCommission was based in part on the release of several prominentTibetan political prisoners in 2002. However, U.S. hopes forcontinued releases in 2003 were disappointed and the trendreversed. In January, China executed Lobsang Dhondup in spiteof assurances provided the United States that a lengthy reviewwould be given in his case. The State Department reported thatunrepentant political prisoners were mistreated by torture andother physical abuse. Ngawang Sangdrol, a 26-year old Tibetannun and one of Tibet’s most well-known political prisoners, wasreleased to the United States in March, five months after herparole from Lhasa’s Drapchi prison in October 2002. Sangdrolhas since been in the care of ICT in Washington, D.C. where sheis studying English and preparing to resume her own campaignfor political freedoms in Tibet. ICT continues to press for therelease of all Tibetan political prisoners by highlighting solidsource material to influential audiences, working in coalitionwith other human rights organizations, and crafting campaignsthat target Chinese authorities.5


Image from ICT’s postcardcampaign on behalf TenzinDelek Rinpoche.religous freedomTibetan Buddhism is the core of theunique Tibetan identity and, as such, hasbeen severely and continually assaultedby Chinese authorities. ICT places particularemphasis on the issue of religiousfreedom in Tibet and in 2003 focused onthe most blatant, as well as many subtle,expressions of religious persecution inTibet. At the forefront of ICT’s effortswas the case of the Panchen Lama, whosestatus remains unknown, in spite ofconstant inquiries by the United States,the European Union and several otherwestern countries about his well-beingand whereabouts in the context of theirbilateral human rights dialogues withChina. The U.S. Commission on ReligiousFreedom was extensively briefed by ICTon the Panchen Lama case before theirscheduled visit to China and Tibet atyear’s end.ICT members continue to registertheir outrage over the disappearanceof the Panchen Lama by mailing affirmationsof religious freedom to U.S.authorities and urging Chinese leadersto allow access to him by internationalrights monitors or humanitarian organizations.Similarly, in an urgent coalitioncampaign, thousands of post cards havebeen sent by ICT members to the ChineseForeign Ministry on behalf of TenzinDelek Rinpoche, a popular lama arrestedwithout evidence, tried without dueprocess and arrested for “incitement toseparatism” and “crimes of terror” onApril 7, 2002. Tenzin Delek Rinpoche wassentenced to death on December 2, 2002,with a two-year reprieve.6

The 2003 report focuses onthe deteriorating situation in Nepal asa result of heightened collusion betweenthe Nepalese and Chinese authorities.Following the forcible repatriation of18 Tibetan refugees from Kathmanduin May, ICT worked to get the news outand campaigned aggressively to bringpressure on the Nepal government. Preferentialtariff legislation for Nepal waswithdrawn by its U.S. Senate sponsor inresponse to the deteriorating situationfor Tibetan refugees in Nepal. And, ina significant victory for the Tibet movement,Nepal responded by adopting anew policy of protection for Tibetanrefugees that codified the informal“gentlemen’s agreement” providing forthe safe transit through Nepal of Tibetanrefugees, in cooperation with the U.N.High Commissioner for Refugees.7

For the secondyear, ICT-Europe pursued the appointment of a European SpecialRepresentative for Tibet, and these efforts resulted in the adoptionof a resolution by the European Parliament and the authorizationof funds by the EU Commission. ICT-Europe made a substantialcontribution in support of European Parliament conferences onTibet and launched an electronic newsletter for Europeanparliamentarians to facilitate communication and coordinationof political activities for Tibet among parliamentarians throughoutEurope.In the spring, ICT Europe worked intensively at the 59th sessionof the UN Commission for Human Rights, highlighting the statusof civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of theTibetan people. In July, ICT Europe held the inaugural EuropeanTibetan Leadership Training Program in Brussels with 23 youngTibetans from across Europe.

Our programaimed at providing Chinese speakers with greater access touncensored information about the Tibetan people and the situationin Tibet.ICT staff participated in a series of meetings in Washington,D.C., New York and Boston with Chinese scholars and intellectuals,including a meeting for a select group of Chinese with the DalaiLama, as part of our attempt to develop bonds of trust betweenTibetan and Chinese peoples.At a different level, ICT provided support to the Special Envoyof His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his efforts to establish contactwith the Chinese leadership to resolve the Tibetan issue.membershipICT membership remained strong in 2003 at about 55,000members in the United States.
