Tibet. This peaceful, mostly Buddhist nation is said to occupy the ‘roof of the world’ thanks to its position on the vast Tibetan plateau. Home to a rich culture and a unique way of life, Tibet was invaded by China in 1950.
Tibet remains under Chinese military occupation and is home to some of the worst human rights abuses in the world today. Those who speak out against the regime face the strictest penalties including long prison sentences and torture.
For almost 70 years Tibetans have continued to demand their freedom. When you join Free Tibet, you’ll receive all the latest news and analysis from Tibet and you’ll be joining hundreds of thousands around the world standing with Tibetans in the face of tyranny. Give today and help free Tibet.
