The Rome Declaration and Tibet

Friday, 20 November 2009, 2:23 p.m.

Rome, 19 November: The 5th World Parliamentarians Convention on Tibet concluded with the adoption of the Rome Declaration on Tibet (see below for the Declaration) and the action plan for the next several years, on Thursday, 19 November 2009.

The focus of the conference, the Rome Declaration and the action plan is on how best to persuade the Chinese leadership to resolve the vexed and protracted issue of Tibet through renewed dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama or his representatives. Participants at the convention believe that this ongoing discourse on Tibet should not be seen as something that threatens China. It should be seen as strengthening China. Participants say that China has yet to solve the fundamental question of governance: who does the state belong to: the emperor or the people?

Participants believe that sooner or later Beijing must grapple with this question if China is to move forward with its dynamic economy.

The concluding session included a moving account of  a survivor of the Nangpa La pass killing. The account was given by Lobsang Choedhen, who, during the shooting of Tibetans who were trying to cross the pass, was hidden by a mountaineer in his tent. In excruciating detail, Lobsang Choedhen narrated the most defining moment in his life. His account was heard by a rapt and hugely sympathetic audience.

In the morning, Tenzing Norbu and Kate Saunders gave vivid and comprehensive accounts of Tibet's role as the Third Pole and how the deteriorating environment of the plateau is having a devastating impact on the lives of millions of people downstream. Yesterday, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said, environment is without borders. These two accounts an alarming reason why, not only for the Tibetan people, but for millions of non-Tibetans who rely and depend on Tibetan waters for their livelihood and their very existence. Headwaters of Asia's major rivers and the Third Pole for the world, the protection of Tibet's environment ensures the livelihood of people far away from the mountains of Tibet.

The Rome Declaration on Tibet on the 5th World Parliamentarian Convention



The Fifth World Parliamentarians’ Convention on Tibet, meeting in Rome on the 18th and 19th of November 2009 –

Defends the right of the Tibetan people to their own identity, culture and way of life;
Reaffirms its strong commitment to the people of Tibet and to the non-violent path they have chosen, under the leadership of His Holiness the Dalai Lama;
Reaffirms the critical role played by parliaments and parliamentary bodies in raising awareness of the difficult situation in Tibet within governments and international institutions and in formulating policies for the benefit of the Tibetan people;
Recalls the four previous meetings of the World Parliamentarians’ Convention on Tibet, the resolutions and action programmes they have generated, and the impact of the resultant activities and initiatives;
Seeks a resolution for Tibet that guarantees genuine autonomy for the Tibetan people within the framework of the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China; and
Proclaims that the message of the World Parliamentarians’ Conference on Tibet is resolutely not anti-Chinese but a statement of support for justice and truth with a sincere conviction that the Tibetan and Chinese peoples can find a way to coexist with mutual respect.

The Fifth World Parliamentarians’ Convention on Tibet,

FINDING that since the last meeting of the World Parliamentarians’ Convention on Tibet in 2005 the situation in Tibet has deteriorated due to the government of the People’s Republic of China’s imposition of harsh measures on Tibetans and its harder line taken toward the Dalai Lama and his pursuit of autonomy;

MOTIVATED by the political protests that began in March 2008 in which Tibetans across the Tibetan plateau expressed their anguish in an unprecedented and overwhelmingly peaceful manner in response to the continuing repressive policies of Chinese authorities;
CONCERNED that Chinese authorities responded to the protests with a security crackdown across the Tibetan plateau that includes the documented detention of 735 Tibetans for exercising rights such as freedom of speech, religion, assembly and association;
OUTRAGED at the execution of Tibetans without following international standards of due process of law;
RECOGNIZING that the People’s Republic of China, as it seeks to be a responsible member of the international community, should acknowledge that with such status come duties and responsibilities to protect and respect those peoples under its control pursuant to international standards of justice and human rights as enshrined in the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;  
RECOGNIZING that the People’s Republic of China has a moral responsibility to address the legitimate grievances of the Tibetan people through fair administration of rule of law under international standards of justice, respect for freedom of religion and expression, protection of the Tibetan people’s right to express their cultural identity and way of life, and implementation of genuine autonomy;
ACKNOWLEDGING the recent documentation by United Nations bodies, including the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Human Rights Council and the Committee Against Torture, national governments and non-governmental organizations, of the systemic violations of the human rights of the Tibetan people by Chinese authorities;
ACKNOWLEDGING that the People’s Republic of China has signed and ratified the U.N. Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, but regrets serious gaps in its implementation, which is a root cause of Tibetan discontent;
RECOGNIZING the need for continuing support for both long-staying and newly-arriving refugees from Tibet, many of whom are young children, including in the areas of humanitarian assistance, education, health, and revitalization of settlements;
CONCERNED by the environmental degradation on the Tibetan plateau, the so-called “Third Pole,” as a result of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions, the mismanagement of natural resources by Chinese governmental and commercial interests, and the resettlement of Tibetan nomads into fixed communities, which separates them from their traditional livelihood and stewardship of Tibetan grasslands;
RECOGNIZING that Chinese policies to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change on the Tibetan plateau affect billions of people in Asia, and that the involvement and experience of Tibetans is integral to the successful implementation of climate change policies;
RECOGNIZING the invaluable contributions, financially and in other forms of support, by governments and citizens toward the well being of the Tibetan people and their effort to sustain their identity, particularly the host nation support by the government and people of India;
RECOGNIZING that international and governmental statements in support for dialogue in the wake of the protests that began in March 2008 were critical in setting the stage for the rounds of dialogue that occurred later in that year;
RECOGNIZING that in order for the negotiations between the Chinese government and the representatives of the Dalai Lama to be effective it is essential that the format of the negotiations be transparent and with the involvement of appropriate international supervision;
CONCLUDING that His Holiness the Dalai Lama, despite the continuing occupation of Tibet, is sincere in seeking a “middle path” solution for Tibet, not independence;
CONCLUDING that the Memorandum on Genuine Autonomy for the Tibetan People proposed by the representatives of the Dalai Lama embodies his vision for genuine autonomy within the constitutional framework of the People’s Republic of China;
CONSIDERING the experiences of the many autonomous regions around the world, for instance Trentino-South Tyrol in Italy, which have shown that conflicts can be overcome by respecting the fundamental rights of distinct peoples and ethnic and linguistic minorities and enabling them to exercise the right to self-government while respecting territorial integrity of the state;
AFFIRMING the value of non-violence in mitigating conflict and misunderstanding and the potential of non-violent leadership as embodied by His Holiness the Dalai Lama for peace and stability in the People’s Republic of China;  and
REAFFIRMING the resolutions and declarations made at all previous World Parliamentarians’ Conferences on Tibet, including the recognition of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in exile as the legitimate representatives of the Tibetan people.  

THEREFORE, the Convention is resolved to:

EXPRESS SUPPORT for substantive negotiations between the Chinese government and the representatives of the Dalai Lama toward a meaningful resolution of the Tibet issue, with the Memorandum on Genuine Autonomy as a realistic and constructive basis for such negotiations;
CALL ON governments to urge the People’s Republic of China to fully respect the Tibetan people’s fundamental human rights and freedoms and to acknowledge their right to authentically participate in all issues regarding their present and future well-being;

URGE national governments to acknowledge that third-party facilitation is essential for the resumption of the dialogue and to guarantee its transparency;
CALL ON the People’s Republic of China to ratify the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights;

ENCOURAGE governments to explore multinational mechanisms to work collaboratively on the challenges of climate change in Tibet, including with the direct participation of Tibetan stakeholders.  To this end, participants of this convention will draft and publish an open letter expressing the key importance of Tibet as the “Third Pole” prior to the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen;

COMMIT to engage relevant governments and institutions to ensure that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is welcomed appropriately when meeting with various government leaders and officials;
COMMIT to building capacity within national governments for dissemination of information and the implementation of policies on Tibet, such as the identification or establishment of an office within the Executive Branch of government to handle Tibet affairs;
COMMIT to identify members of an international parliamentarians network for Tibet. The network, in consultation with the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile, will identify a secretariat.  The network will facilitate greater coordination between parliamentary groups, share best practices, and be sufficiently supported in the international advancement of a near-term action plan to include:
(1) introducing a resolution or motion in parliaments reflecting the principal elements of the World Parliamentarians’ Conference on Tibet Declaration;
(2) requesting a full briefing on the Tibetan policy advanced by their governments, including in multilateral fora, in the areas of human rights, environment, security, development and other economic assistance and geopolitics;
(3) seeking tangible national and local governmental and private support for programmes that provide assistance to Tibetan communities, including inside Tibet and to long-staying and new refugees from Tibet;
(4) engaging in parliamentary exchanges with Chinese legislators and in outreach to Chinese constituents;
(5) visiting Tibet as part of a multi-national parliamentary delegation with the intent of determining the situation on the ground, including the status of Tibetan nomads and political prisoners;
(6) organizing parliamentary hearings before the foreign affairs and/or human rights committees with Tibetan representatives and, if they accept, Chinese government representatives to discuss the political and humanitarian situation in Tibet;
(7) promoting a campaign to gather the support for, endorsement of, and signature on this declaration by parliamentarians of democratic national and local governments, political parties, community leaders, religious organizations, Nobel Peace Laureates, opinion makers and all citizens of goodwill in the world.

Association A.a.R.T

Association Aide aux Réfugiés Tibétains - 5 Rue Des Hirondelles - 69680 CHASSIEU - aartibetains@orange.fr


1959, la Chine envahit officiellement le TIbet. 6000 monastères sont détruits et plus d'un million de tibétains sont exterminés. Depuis, la Chine continue sa politique de "nettoyage" envers les Tibétains qui doivent fuir régulièrement leur pays pour préserver leur culture et leur religion qu'ils essaient de maintenir en exil. Les actions de A.a.R.T (Aide aux Réfugiés Tibétains) se situent essentiellement à Dharamsala et ses environs ( Nord de l'Inde ) où sont en exil plus de 10 000 tibétains avec leur chef spirituel le Dalaï-Lama. A.a.R.T est une association à vocation humanitaire, qui prend soin de familles, d'enfants, d'étudiants et de personnes âgées, les plus pauvres, nouvellement arrivés du Tibet, et qui ont tout perdu dans leur fuite. Moyennant 20 à 25 euro par mois, une personne est officiellement parrainée, mais il est évident qu'il n'est pas possible de favoriser, s'il s'agit d'une famille, un enfant plutôt qu'un autre, l'argent est donc utile à l'achat pour tous les enfants de la famille de vêtements et chaussures pour l'école, de crayons et cahiers, de nourriture ... Il permet également à certains l'achat de matériels ( exemple : machine à coudre, four à pain ) qui permet ainsi à toutes les personnes habitant sous le même toit de vivre correctement. Un petit dossier et des photos sont remis au parrain ou à la marraine lors de la prise de décision du parrainage. Concernant la personne parrainée, le parrainage est une aide et non une assistance. La somme n'est pas suffisante pour couvrir tous les frais du parrainé parce qu'il est important que tout être aidé conserve l'estime de lui-même et sa force intérieure en continuant son "combat" pour la vie. De Même, nous insistons, concernant les parrains marraines, sur le fait que le parrainage ne se fait pas sur un "coup de tête" passager. IL est hors de question, qu'un être qui a déjà tout perdu, se sente encore abandonné moralement après quelques mois par un parrain ou une marraine indélicat qui a juste voulu "voir un parrainage de près", comme une "aventure exotique" sans importance. L'engagement moral est important, autant que l'engagement matériel ! Pour tous ceux qui ne désirent pas s'engager moralement mais qui désirent apporter une aide temporaire, A.a.R.T donne la possibilité de participer financièrement aux soins d'un grave problème de santé, nécessitant opérations et/ou lourds soins médicaux (dernièrement : opération du coeur suite à un anévrisme cardiaque, coût de l'opération : 2000 euro, opération de kystes dans le foie, coût de l'opération : 600 euro). A.a.R.T offre également, dans un registre plus "gai" la possibilité de faire un don unique pour aider à l'élaboration de petits projets professionnels de nouveaux réfugiés sans possibilité financière. Dans chacun de ces trois cas, l'aide est efficace et vraiment salutaire !Deux fois par an en moyenne, l'argent des parrainages est acheminé sur place, et distribué aux personnes concernées. Un rapport d'activité est ensuite envoyé à chaque parrain sur les conditions de vie du moment de leurs petits protégés. Il est vivement souhaité de correspondre avec l'enfant parrainé, famille, étudiant ou personne âgée, de leur faire parvenir des photos et autres liens ( petits souvenirs, vêtements, ... ) Lors des voyages réalisés pour acheminer l'argent, le "messager" de l'association est toujours chargé de très nombreux courriers, photos et colis par les parrains et marraines. Au retour, le même processus a lieu dans l'autre sens : les enfants et familles tibétaines remettent toujours lettres et petits cadeaux remplis de symbole d'amour pour leurs parrains, et quelques photos s'ils en possèdent. Les parrains et marraines sont encouragés à rendre visite à leur filleul en Inde, car ceux-ci les attendent et rêvent de les rencontrer. Savoir que quelqu'un pense à eux en Europe les aide à se reconstruire moralement, ce rôle psychologique est très important. En fin d'année, un justificatif des versements est envoyé, pour déduction fiscale ( 50% des dons, à hauteur de 3.5% des revenus annuels ). Si vous êtes intéressés, n'hésitez pas à nous contacter, et dans tous les cas, merci de l'intérêt que vous avez porté au sujet et du temps que vous avez passé à nous lire.
