Support Tibet Resolution

Dear Supervisor _________ I strongly disagree with Supervisor\'s Carmen Chu and Sean Elsbernd decision to greatly alter the language of Resolution 080345, Commending Tibetan Freedom Torch and Global Human Rights from Torch Relay from any critical mention of China\'s human rights abuses. Further, I am outraged that the revised legislation that the CONS committee approved so drastically altered the resolution to have the opposite meaning from its intent. The human rights you stand up for are your own. Show China that San Francisco genuinely cares for all human rights including Tibetan, Chinese, Burmese, Darfur human rights by insisting on vote of the full board to approve the original legislation that Supervisor Chris Daly introduced. By denying the full Board of Supervisors the vote on the original resolution, San Francisco is both risking its reputation as a champion for human rights and is complicit with the Chinese government in its propaganda campaign to whitewash its horrible human rights record and violent treatment of protesters in Tibet. We strongly urge you to support Chris Daly\'s original human rights resolution when the matter comes to the full Board of Supervisors for a vote. Thank you. Sincerely,
