Dear Mr. Thomas Bach:

I am writing to ask for your help in ensuring that the Tibetan people have a voice at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

On 7 August 2007, the National Olympic Committee Tibet wrote to Mr. Jacques Rogge, requesting an invitation to send a Tibetan team to participate in the Games of the XXIX Olympiad. I understand that, according to Article 28 (3) of the Olympic Charter, the Executive Board is empowered to make this decision. However, the NOC Tibet has not yet received a response.

As you are likely aware, Tibetans are currently unrecognized and unrepresented in the Olympic Games due to their country's occupation by China. The NOC Tibet was formed to give voice to Tibetan athletes, who wish to participate alongside athletes from other nations at the Beijing Games.

China and the International Olympic Committee have both so far failed to deliver on the hopes and promises that the Olympics will be a force for good for the people of China and Tibet. In Tibet, China continues to marginalize the local population, exploit natural resources at little or no benefit to local people, and severely restrict Tibetans' freedom of religion, assembly, education, and speech. Thousands of Tibetans flee into exile every year. Most recently, the Chinese government has instituted unprecedented controls on Tibetan Buddhism, and is carrying out an intensified crackdown on freedom of speech and assembly in Eastern Tibet.

I trust that the IOC will ensure that the Beijing Olympics do indeed act as a positive force for change for Tibet. Inviting Team Tibet to Beijing 2008 is one important way ensure this, and an ideal way for the IOC to give substance to the values that led Pierre de Coubertin, the father of the great Olympic movement, to revive the ancient tradition of the Olympic Games.
