Tibetan activist addresses MPs in Westminster

Release by Tibet Society of UK

[London] Tibetan activist and writer Tenzin Tsundue yesterday addressed MPs and Tibet supporters in the House of Commons, Westminster at a forum on Tibet organised by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet (APPGT) and the Tibet Society of the UK.
During the forum, Tsundue provided evidence of Tibet’s independence prior to 1959, showing a National Geographic article from 1934 featuring flags of the world and which records the flag of Tibet as entirely distinct from that of China. Tsundue also circulated copies of a Tibetan passport issued in 1947 containing official stamps from Britain demonstrating Britain’s recognition of Tibet as an independent nation. Holding a coin from independent Tibet, Tsundue said "these coins are now displayed in museums; if Tibetan people and their supporters don’t fight for independence, next we Tibetans will be in museums".
He went on to stress the urgency in finding a solution to Tibet, citing ongoing human rights abuses and social distrust through use of informers, saying "Inside Tibet, Tibetans do not speak about Tibet, parents are even afraid to tell their children about Tibet". He went on to say, "Tibet has a very clear history of independence and Britain is a witness to this. The British government has a clear responsibility to speak up on the issue and for its policy to support Tibet." More.............

July 1st - Reject China's Railway to TIBET

Come and Join the protest against the launch of China's Railway to Tibet on Saturday July 1st. The Chinese government claims that this railway will benefit Tibetans and is a project that all Tibetan want. They tell the media and the world that the railway will bring progress and positive benefits to Tibetan. But we know the truth: China's railway to Tibet is not meant to benefit Tibetans and is only meant to consolidate Beijing's control over the region. Rise up and show your solidarity with Tibetans in Tibet by REJECTING THE RAILWAY. Help us show Beijing that while they may have completed the railway, the fight is not over and Tibetans will continue to resist China's illegal occupation of Tibet.

There are two ways you can show your solidarity.

1. Join the Tibetan Youth UK and SFTUK protest outside the Chinese Embassy in London which will form part of global demonstrations at Chinese embassies and consulates on this day.
49-51 Portland Place, London
