关于西藏问题的紧急呼吁

Written by: guest | Filed under:-chinese-posts | No Comments » newest

西藏问题正面临重大转折。中国政府的西藏策略已转向战略主动;中国的综合国力和国际影响与日俱增;“西藏牌”对某些西方国家的价值今非昔比;达赖喇嘛年事已高,年轻一代流亡藏人已经走向前台。在这样的历史背景下,中国政府与“西藏流亡政府”的对立势必加剧,部分藏人的诉求策略也必将发生重大变化。

作为独立学者,在下不愿看到3.14事件重演,不愿看到无辜生命遭受摧残,而希望看到藏区人民幸福安宁、民族之间团结互助。为此,笔者呼吁全世界一切关注西藏问题的各界中立人士密切合作,献计献策,以灵活务实的态度推动西藏问题的圆满解决。

在此,笔者倡议成立一个非政府、非政党、非营利的“民间西藏行动”(英文Grassroots Tibet Initiative,简称GTI),汇集民间智慧与力量,以实际行动推动西藏问题的逐步解决。达赖喇嘛本人强调与中国人民对话的必要性和重要性,并说解决西藏问题的希望在于中国人民。在下愿和各地同仁一道探索西藏问题的解决之道。

为切实推动西藏问题的解决,笔者呼吁关注西藏问题的各界中立人士,在条件许可的情况下 深入藏区,接触藏区各界人士,倾听藏民之心声,记录藏区之现状,以“第三只眼”看西藏。只有全面深入了解西藏,才有可能提出切实可行的对策和建议。在此,笔者真诚希望能够得到各界人士的鼎力支持。

CPPCC plays an advisory role to the Chinese government.  Han is a businessman and an investment banker. Currently living in HK, Han specializes in issues involving Tibet, Hong Kong and Macao and overseas Chinese. Continue reading »

I was reading an opinion column in the Washington Post that contained information I thought might be of interest to the group. It concerned a BBC World View poll showing how countries view each other, either positively or negatively and the percentages of each. It was interesting to see not only how countries viewed each other, but also how the view a country has of itself can be very different than the actual reality. Per the Post column, “A whopping 92 percent of Chinese surveyed believe that China has a mainly positive influence on the world; whereas a mere 39 percent of people polled in 20 other major countries agree. This was the largest perception gap among the countries’ polled.”
