Our Group’s Letters of Concern Helped Release Jampel Chunjor, Ngawang Gyaltsen and Ven Ngawang Phulchung.
Jampel Chunjor, Ngawang Gyaltsen and Ven Ngawang Phulchung are Tibetian Monks jailed by the Chinese government for promoting democracy in Tibet.
Ngawang was one of the leaders of the Drepung printing group, also known as the “Group of Ten,” a publishing collective formed in early 1988 after peaceful demonstrations were violently suppressed by Chinese authorities on September 17, 1987.
The publications of the group included a Tibetan translation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Global Importune letter signing group began sending letters of concern on behalf of Jampel Chunjor, Ngawang Gyaltsen and Ven Ngawang Phulchung to officials in the government of China sometime around August 2005.
The national and international outcry helped secured the release of Jampel Chunjor, Ngawang Gyaltsen and Ven Ngawang Phulchung on October 29, 2007.
