Tibet needs our help.

Dear friends,

6609_Tibet_campaign_1candles_1_460x230

Tibetans who refuse to fly the Chinese flag above their homes risk being beaten or shot in the latest attempt to break their spirits. But now is the best moment in ages to bring hope to Tibet’s proud, but desperate people.

China’s leaders are mounting an intense campaign to draw a veil over their rights abuses and persuade governments to vote them onto the UN Human Rights Council. So if enough of us shine a light on what’s going on in Tibet — squashing an ancient religion, banning journalists, dawn arrests — we can get China to back away from its hard-line policy to be sure of getting the 97 votes it needs.

Let’s show the Tibetan people that the world hasn’t forgotten them. China is feeling the heat as 13 governments just called them out on human rights in Tibet. Sign to stand with Tibet, then share…

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    Oh God Paulette. This is why I can no longer read the news.
    Or be too much in the world.
    When the good are murdered and the evil flourish, I like to hang out with hummingbirds, and you with abused puppies.
    I know there is hope in the world.
    There is you.
    I signed.
    I don’t know how much good it will do.

    • Thank you, Cindy! I stay away from the news also. Saw this one on Ela’s reblog site and shared. We do what we can, simple small actions and that’s what changes the world. You’re coming here, commenting, signing, already helped me feel good that someone else joined in to try to make a difference. And, who knows where the ripples go. Your photography does a whole lot to make the world a better place, that speaks to the incredible talent and gift you have that you share so freely. Love to you my friend.

    I’ve signed. It’s a horrible situation and time that it changed.

  7. Thank you for sharing this brutal and despicable face of reality. It breaks my heart and yet, as the world grows more cold, it is sadly our future.
