Dear Tso Pema Ling We're excited to share with you the news that Tibetan writer Kalsang Tsultrim was released from Chinese detention on Oct 15th, following his arrest in July for distributing a video message calling on Tibetans to unite in action. This follows reports that Tibet's leading intellectual Shogdung was also released last week, pending trial.
Although they are still being monitored by Chinese authorities, their release is a clear victory for all Tibetans inside Tibet who are bravely speaking out for their rights. We thank each and every one of you who took action to help secure their release. We urge you to continue pushing for the release of other Tibetan political prisoners. Your actions do make a difference. FREE TIBET! ACTION CAMP XII KICKS OFF IN INDIA
