Tibetan monks and lay people were seen lying on the ground, covered in blood, and surrounded by Chinese military. Then the bystanders were asked to deliver petition letters to Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, urging him to send a Special Envoy into Tibet.

He said, In a free world where people are concern about the Animals Rights why can’t Tibetans have their basic Human Rights. The situation in Tibet right now is as critical as the 2008 uprising where so many innocent Tibetans were killed. He call for urgent UN action and World leaders to save Tibetan lives.
