Help get Tibetan interests on government's agendas

This December, we are going to take a look back at some of the amazing success we have achieved together in 2022. So far we have looked at our campaign wins and global headline-hitting actions. This week, the focus is on our advocacy work.

  1. We made sure that Tibet was raised in the UK parliament and beyond. 


    From Liz Truss' address to the UN Human Rights Council to cross-party MP's questions to the government about destruction in Drago County and the forced sampling of Tibetans' DNA - we're reaching out to decision-makers and getting them talking about Tibet.


  2. We submitted a major petition to the UK government and it had global impact. 


    10,000 of you signed our petition to demand the system of Chinese colonial boarding schools in Tibet was on the G7 leaders' agenda. In October, I delivered the petition to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and the following month Tibet was included in the G7 Foreign Ministers' closing statement.


  3. Dozens of MPs joined our call to ban Hikvision from the UK. 


    At least 67 peers and MPs from the UK houses of parliament backed calls by Free Tibet for a complete ban on the sale and use of Hikvision equipment in the UK. Those signed in support included Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey MP, former Labour Shadow Attorney General Baroness Chami Shakrabarti and Green MP Caroline Lucas.


Governments around the world are acting for Tibet, from the U.S. ‘Promoting a Resolution to the Tibet-China Conflict' bill to the Canadian Sino-Tibetan dialogue motion that unanimously passed yesterday. We must make sure the UK government also acts for Tibet.

I'm urging MPs to support Tibetan freedom. Can you ensure Tibetan interests are voiced in UK Parliament and worldwide?
