(TibetanReview.net, Feb28, 2015) – Two Tibetans were among a list of 40 “human rights heroes, activists and former political prisoners” who addressed the 7th Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy which was held in the Swiss city over Feb 21-24. The summit is sponsored by a coalition of 20 human rights NGOs from around the world and held annually on the eve of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s main annual session.

The situation in Chinese ruled Tibet and the issue of Tibet were raised by Ms Dicki Chhoyang, the minister for Information and International Relations of the exile Tibetan administration at Dharamshala, India, and Ms Tenzin Dhardon Sharling, member of the exile Tibetan parliament at Dharamshala.

The organizers said the summit assembles each year hundreds of courageous dissidents and human rights victims, activists, diplomats, journalists and student leaders to shine a spotlight on urgent human rights situations that require global attention.
