That this House on the occasion of the 54th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising of 10 March 1959, expresses its sadness at the loss of countless Tibetan lives over the last 64 years due to China's military occupation; draws attention to the continued Tibetan resistance to China's repressive policies and human and civil rights abuses through peaceful protests and grass roots cultural movements; strongly condemns the use of force by Chinese police and military personnel to quash those protests; further condemns the Chinese government's restrictions on freedom of expression which include long prison sentences for sharing information about demonstrations; calls on the Chinese government to ease tensions by withdrawing its forces from Tibet and allow foreign journalists, humanitarian agencies and independent observers full and unfettered access to Tibetan areas to ascertain the current situation; further calls on the Government to find new forms of approach with China that will help safeguard Tibetans' rights and freedoms; and further calls on the Government to work multilaterally with other governments to urge China to work with Tibetan representatives to resolve the grievances of the Tibetan people and bring stability and peace to Tibet.
