More Arrests of Peaceful Tibetans

It hurts my fingers to type the words "People's Republic of China" because there is no such thing. The greedy power-crazed dictators have infected too many Chinese, (as well as many European/Americans) with their twisted version of the truth, and if the leaders of countries which have some semblance of free speech don't do something, I shudder to think of the consequences.
Imagine being imprisoned for ONE YEAR for simply asking, over a cell phone, about Tibetan independence.
