Tibet Autonomous Region: Access Denied
This report, written in the aftermath of the widespread Tibetan unrest in Tibet and Tibetan regions of China in the spring of 2008, addresses the Chinese government with immediate demands. In cracking down on unrest, the Chinese government sealed off Tibet and neighboring Tibetan regions to foreign tourists, reporters, and independent observers. The authors fear that widespread human rights violations are taking place in the blacked out area. This report very strongly recommends that the affected regions be reopened to foreign observers to safeguard the Tibetan population against human rights violations.
