How You Can Help Tibet

In western imagination, Tibet is a Shangri-la, the place of eternal youth, but to Tibetans, theirs is a Country - under Chinese occupation where 1.2 million Tibetans have died as a direct result of that occupation. It is a country ruled by a brutal military dictatorship which cracks down on every form of dissent. Tibetans under Chinese rule suffer from the lack of all rights which we take for granted elsewhere in the world. There is no freedom of speech and assembly. Those who are caught doing so are put behind bars. This situation has remained unchanged ever since 1949 when China invaded Tibet.
