On the occasion of March 10, Tibet National Uprising Day, the International Campaign for Tibet - Germany projected giant messages onto the Chinese embassy in Berlin calling for dialogue and respect for human rights in Tibet. The images particularly addressed the wave of self-immolations in Tibet and called for “dialogue, not force” with the Tibetan people. Messages were displayed in Chinese, English and German. One images displayed the Dalai Lama, captioned in Chinese with “Talk to him, Mr. President!”
“We sought to directly confront the Chinese authorities in Germany with the legitimate concerns of many German citizens, among them a large number of members of the International Campaign for Tibet in Germany. Only through dialogue and respect for human rights, there can be a lasting solution for the issue of Tibet – that’s what many Germans hold as aspiration.” Said Kai Mueller, Executive Director of the International Campaign for Tibet Germany.
