Chinese Premier to meet David Cameron on 27 June
Take Action: Urge Cameron to speak out for Tibet

Wen JiabaoChinese Premier Wen Jiabao is due to visit the UK between 25 and 27 June, and will be meeting David Cameron in London on 27 June for a UK-China Summit. This meeting provides the British Prime Minister with the perfect opportunity of putting human rights at the centre of the UK's relationship with China, in line with the government's commitment announced earlier this year.

In March, Foreign Secretary William Hague stated that the British government is committed to a foreign policy that has the practical promotion of human rights as part of its irreducible core. The British government has also strongly backed those seeking democracy and human rights during the 'Arab Spring' protests. Now the government should afford pro-active support for those who continue to be oppressed in Tibet and China.

Placards and flags will be provided at the London protests but feel free to bring your own. Both Cameron and Wen must be reminded that human rights must be put before trade, and Wen has to see that the issue of Tibet is still important to those living in the UK.
The London protests are being organised by a coalition of UK-based Tibet groups, including Tibet Society.

TAKE ACTION

Please write to Prime Minister David Cameron calling on him to:
► raise grave concerns with the Chinese Premier over the ongoing situation in Ngaba, eastern Tibet and to urge the Chinese government to:
  - end the military lockdown of Kirti monastery;
  - immediately withdraw the military from Ngaba;
  - release all those detained since the situation began in mid-March including the 300 monks forcibly removed from Kirti monastery, and
  - allow access for media and international observers.
to make a strong and public statement expressing concern over the increasing repression in Tibet and the recent crackdown on dissent which has seen numerous arbitrary arrests of those who speak out against Chinese government policies.
to resolutely call on the Chinese government to uphold the rule of law, including fair and transparent trials, and to adhere to internationally accepted human rights standards, such as the rights to freedom of expression, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly.
