We can change the world
The pressure on China urging for justice in Tibet is beginning to pay off.
You did that!
And you and you and you - and all the other 1.5 million people who signed the petition and joined the demonstrations around the world.
This is what Avaaz have to say about you:
Together, we've built an unprecedented wave of global pressure. The Avaaz petition is one of the biggest and fastest-growing global online petitions on any topic in history; since it launched on March 18, it has been signed by 100,000 people per day--an average of more than 4,000 per hour, day and night.
It seems that the Chinese leaders are beginning to waver, so it's vital to keep the pressure on and to urge our own government to do likewise.
You can send a message to your own heads of state here.
On Sunday, the Olympic torch will be passing through London.
Finally, some more words from Avaaz to help you sleep at night:
We're privileged to be alive at a time when people anywhere can reach out and support people everywhere--instantly.
If we have the power to make things better, we have a responsibility to act.
