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。

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.”
