National Public Radio (NPR) reported that “The [Buddhist] monks [in Tibet] listen secretly to Voice of America’s Tibetan service news every night, despite feeling almost physical pain at the bleak news.” Ignoring the suffering of the Tibetan people under the Chinese communist rule and desperate self-immolations of Tibetan monks to shock the conscience of the world, the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), a U.S. Federal agency which operates the Voice of America (VOA), wants to end VOA radio broadcasts to Tibet.
Don't let the Broadcasting Board of Governors deny uncensored Voice of America news and hope to the Tibetan people while BBG executives divert U.S. taxpayers' money to create new high-level bureaucratic positions, pay themselves bonuses and sign a $50 million multi-year contract with the Gallup Organization.
As U.S. taxpayers, you fund and support the Voice of America. Demand that your money be used to bring uncensored American news to the suffering people of Tibet, China and other countries without free media rather than being spent on the salaries of government officials at the Broadcasting Board of Governors.
