Tibet is a country that has been living under China's brutal occupation for over 65 years,.Last year, Free Tibet commissioned major research into public understanding of Tibet. The results were sobering. Many are barely even aware that Tibet exists. It's time to change that.
Free Tibet https://www.freetibet.org/ is currently raising money to fund a brand new animated short film about Tibet, in attempt to bring the Tibetan story to life, and capture the struggle and tenacious spirit of the Tibetan people.
Once completed, they will use Free Tibet's international reach to get this video seen by millions of people; creating a whole new generation of Tibet supporters. Whatever my political allegiances my own feelings of solidarity remain with those who are physically, economically and culturally brutalised Like the Palestinians and the Kurds I support their daily struggle against brutal political repression and will side with those people that are immediately oppressed. There is simply no escaping the fact that China occupies Tibet in much the same way other regimes occupy lands that simply do not belong to them. China’s claims to have “liberated” Tibet continue to ring hollow, and the continuing Tibetan resistance represents an important call for self-determination'
However since the 2008 uprising in Tibet, the situation has been deteriorating with thousands of arrests, and the torture of Tibetans. It is evident that Chinese policies are hampering Tibetans who are driven to drastic acts of self immolation to resist China’s political repression and cultural assimilation. Here is a link to a crowdfunding page to help Free Tibet get their message out to a much wider audience, that these people are simply not forgotten. :-,
