"Backward Protest March"
Saturday, 07 December 2013
From Parliament Square to Downing Street
Gather at 12:30
For the first time in the history, Tibetans and supporters will walk in backward in protest to highlight the deteriorating situation in Tibet and to register their anger and disgust over the Communist China’s entry into United Nations Human Rights Council through the backdoor.
The March is to tell the world that China in Human Rights Council is backward step for United Nations’ history. It also represent treatment of Tibetans in Tibet are going backward instead of improving and turning the whole of Tibetan region into a gulag like restriction of movement for Tibetans. Marchers walk in backward steps to let the general public and politicians know that human rights situation in Tibet is going backward.
Every year Tibetans and Supporters throughout the world celebrate 10 December as Human Rights day to honour the United Nation’s adoption and proclamation of Human rights act in 1948. This year is different and credible of the United Nations is in questions as Tibetans and supporters march in backward motion to mark the human rights day.
We will also deliver a petition asking Prime Minister David Cameron to raise Tibet issue with the Chinese Authorities like He did with the president Mahinda Rajapaksa of Sri Lanka. We ask the Prime Minister not to go backward on human rights pledge when dealing with China. The Prime Minister David Cameron will make an official state visit to China in the coming few days.
The marcher will cover distance of approximately 0.6 mile or 1 Km from Parliament Square off Abington Road to Downing Street. The protest march will pass through some of the iconic and historic land marks and government offices including Parliament House, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Supreme Court, Foreign and Common Wealth Office and Richmond Terrace (opposite of Downing Street).
Please be part of history and join a protest to show your solidarity for the Tibetans in Tibet.
