What Is Free Tibet Campaign?
Free Tibet Campaign stands for the Tibetans' right to determine their own future. It campaigns for an end to China's occupation of Tibet and for the Tibetans' fundamental human rights to be respected. Founded in 1987, Free Tibet Campaign generates active support by educating people about the situation in Tibet. It is independent of all governments and is funded by its members and supporters.Tibet was once a peaceful place, filled with beauty, tradition, and compassion. The population consisted of many monks and nuns, situated in the Himalayas. They had a small army, and their leader was both a holy and political leader. The Dalai Lama.
In 1959 the communists of China invaided Tibet, and crushed their small army. China took over the peaceful nation, and still inhabit it today.
The Dalai Lama was forced into exile, where he remains, and many of the Tibetans were forced to seek refuge in neighboring countries such as India.
The Chinese are continuing to treat the Tibetans unfairly. Peaceful monks are imprisoned and tortured in labour camps for doing little more than hanging up posters for Tibeten independence.
