"The situation in Tibet is a challenge to the conscience of the world," said Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of House. "If freedom-loving people throughout the world do not speak out against China and the Chinese in Tibet, we have lost all moral authority to speak out on human rights," in reacting to the unprecedented Tibetan protests against 58 years of Chinese occupation, and China's swift and brutal crackdown. The tragedy began when China invaded Tibet in 1949/1950. Before the Chinese occupation Tibet was free and peaceful. There were no Chinese settlers in Tibet and no Tibetan refugees.
