French MP Luca: Tibet is dying at our silence

Mr. Lionel Luca is a member of French parliament as well as the president of Tibet Group in French National Assembly has spoken out bravely against China in a statement on 29th October. He has expressed is grave concern over the on going fiery chain of self immolation and appealed the wide international audience to act against China's policy over Tibet so as to bring a mutually beneficial resolution.
Excerpt from his statement:
"62 Tibetans have set themselves on fire since 2009, including 7 self-immolations last week alone. Total indifference is triggering a succession of self-immolations of Tibetans to protest against the repression of Chinese government against freedom of religion and culture of Tibetan people, guaranteed by the constitution.
No government seems willing to react; thus, it is up to the people to do so by boycotting all Chinese goods, which will be the only means to exert pressure on a government that tramples International law.
Tibet is dying of our silence..."
