DHARAMSHALA, February 11: The online advocacy group, Avaaz has launched a signature campaign, “Xi Jinping, President of China have a tea with Tenzin Gyatso the Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet”. The petition targeting 2000 signatures was created by Robert T from United Stated of America. The text of the petition reads, “it will benefit China—Han, Tibetans, and all minorities to break the cycle of resentment and repression left over from past inept policies.”

“Actions flowing from such a heart-to-heart meeting will benefit you personally, China's social harmony, relations with rest of Asia and whole world, the environment, and the millions of us worldwide who want you to be the historic Great Fifth President of China, who brings your great nation into harmony with itself and the global community.”

The petition so far has been signed by 1755 people and will be delivered to the Chinese president.

Last year, Avaaz launched another major signature petition “Is this Tibet’s Big Chance” urging the United Nation member states not to elect China into the Human Rights Council. It collected more than a million signatures.
