Stop Chinese cruelty in Tibet.

Free Tibet.

Nepalese police and military kills innocent Tibetan who en route to India for better life. They also handover remaining Chinese back to China for money by violating UNHCR.

These Puppet of Chinese in Nepal should be punished.

It is always appalling to me, how humans can be so unknowledgeable about their surroundings! Planet Earth is a very active planet, as can be seen by it's past over 4, 1/2 billion years! Humans have been here, we don't know for certain how long or if they were humanoids or homo sapiens but they have enough intelligence to build cities, but they build them in dangerous places (like Pompei) beneath a volcano, probably because they don't think it will erupt in their time! It happens all over the world, since humans first existed, people by the dozens, hundreds or thousands can be killed due to our Planet's activity! There are avalanches, landslides, earthquakes, sink-holes, flooding, and tsunamis that can quickly (or over a period of time) take people's lives. Today, we have sensors, that enable us to evacuate some places, but not all. (We don't know when an earthquake or landslide at the bottom of the ocean will cause a tsunami like the one that killed so many in 2004 and 2009 in Asia! And man-caused disasters can occur as well as environmental ones (like the dams that break and flood towns below them!) and yet, people are still testing nature, never thinking it will happen to THEM!
We mine, dig, frack, blast, dam up, and do so many things that can jeopardize our lives, all for MONEY or needs for an ever-increasing human population, which is the cause of so many man-made disasters. Will it ever end? Probably not.
