Sikyong Dr. Lobsang Sangay (Political Head of CTA) and the Speaker (of the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile) Khenpo Sonam Tenphel held a joint press conference (on 12/5/16) in which they launched a new video about the situation at Larung Gar and urged the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to take action about the urgent situation.

The CTA also called on Tibetans and Tibet supporters to sign the petition ‘Stand with Larung Gar Now’ initiated by ‘Safeguarding Buddhism’ that now has over 1,47,000 supporters. We are working to help develop a way to deliver this petition this week prior to Human Rights Day.
