The group has called on all Tibetans to peacefully protest against China's plans to pass the Olympic torch through Tibet.
He Dalai Lama publicly manifested a few days ago his dismay at the fact that the language, customs and traditions of Tibetans are in danger as they are becoming an insignificant minority within their own homeland in the Himalayas. He also admitted his intention to address the international community soon in his attempt to claim a little respect for freedom of expression from China.
