“The report will serve as a reference tool to the worldwide Tibet support groups and all volunteers for the Tibetan people’s non-violent movement struggle,” he said.

“We hope the action plan of the conference will help alleviate the human rights situation in Tibet and guide the worldwide Tibet support movement,” Phelgya said.
