United Nations G.A. Resolution 1723 (XVI) on Tibet (1961) [p.10]

UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION 1723 (XVI)

NEW YORK, 1961

The General Assembly,

Recalling its resolution 1353 (XVI) of 21 October 1959 on the question of Tibet,

Gravely concerned at the continuation of events in Tibet, including the violation of the fundamental human rights of the Tibetan people and the suppression of the distinctive cultural and religious life which they have traditionally enjoyed,

Noting with deep anxiety the severe hardships which these events have inflicted on the Tibetan people, as evidenced by the large-scale exodus of Tibetan refugees to the neighboring countries,

Considering that these events violate fundamental human rights and freedoms set out in the Charter of the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, including the principle of self-determination of peoples and nations, and have the deplorable effect of increasing international tension and embittering relations between peoples,

1) Reaffirms its conviction that respect for the principles of the Charter of the United Nations and of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is essential for the evolution of a peaceful world order based on the rule of law;

2) Solemnly renews its call for the cessation of practices which deprive the Tibetan people of their fundamental human rights and freedoms, including their right to self-determination;

3) Expresses the hope that Member States will make all possible efforts, as appropriate, towards achieving the purposes of the present resolution.

  • Åbent brev til regeringen om Hong Kong

    Åbent brev til den danske regering

    Kære udenrigsminister Jeppe Kofod

    Den nye sikkerhedsbeslutning, som blev fremlagt i Kinas Folkekongres den 22. maj (1) og vedtaget i dag, er den alvorligste trussel mod Hong Kongs selvstyre, demokrati og menneskerettigheder, som vi hidtil har været vidne til. Enhver med kendskab til Tibet og Østturkestan ved, hvordan det kinesiske styre udnytter love om "national sikkerhed" som et påskud for målrettede indgreb mod kritik af regeringen, initiativer for at styrke etniske identiteter eller sågar ønsker om at måtte benytte sit eget sprog i undervisningen, j.fr. Tashi Wangchuk-sagen (2).

    For the first time in Denmark the Chinese Embassy faces collective resistance from some of the peoples that are most directly suppressed or threatened by China. On Tuesday 10 March at 4.30 pm we protest against China's ruthless behaviour but also to show that we could all live in harmony with China if only the Chinese leaders would let everyone live as they chose.

    Ms Zumretay Arkin from World Uyghur Congress in Munich visits Denmark to tell about re-education camps and total surveillance. There will be speeches by the Hong Kong activist Mr Andrew Chan, chairman of Taiwan Corner, Mr Michael Danielsen and exile Chinese Ms Marion Chen from Our Future House. We will also read the statement by Tibet's exile President, Mr Lobsang Sangay. Danish politics are represented by Mr Christian Jul (Red-Green Alliance), Mr Thomas Rohden from Danish China-Critical Society and Mr Anders Storgaard, Conservative Youth.
