Self immolation is brning yourself to death in protest. As of July 2020, 156 monks, nuns, and ordinary people self-immolated in Tibet since 27 February 2009, when Tapey, a young monk from Kirti Monastery, set himself on fire in the marketplace in Ngawa City, Ngawa County, Sichuan. According to the International Campaign for Tibet (ICT), “Chinese police have beaten, shot, isolated, and disappeared self-immolators who survived.”[
I (Mark) have been a supporter of ‘Free Tibet’ (London) for quite a while now. I am an animal rights campaigner; but am also a human rights campaigner when I feel it is right, and I feel the need to try and support oppressed peoples.
China invaded Tibet during the 1950’s, and now have total control over what happens there.
The Tibetan people have lost their rights due to the Chinese control; hence the fight, with my support to once again Free Tibet from China and the abusive government that has destroyed its people.
“Tibet today is one of the most repressed and closed societies in the world.”
– Senator Robert Menendez, Chair of US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, 2012
China invaded Tibet in 1950. Inside its borders and across the world, Tibetans have never stopped believing Tibet is a nation.
After more than 70 years of occupation, Tibetans still resist China’s rule and defy its oppression.
YULIN – The annual dog meat “festival” in Yulin is scheduled for June 21st and animals need your voice as part of the effort to bring cruelty like this to an end. China, despite all its supposed chages to animal welfare policies recently, still do not appear to have control over something which causes immense and illegal animal suffering. China seems to have totalitarian rights in Tibet, but when dog suffering in XChina is invooved, they seem to turn the other way.

Boycott Beijing – make a stand for human rights.
The 2022 Winter Olympic Games are going to be held in Beijing, China.
Olympianism is the coming together and celebration of cultures through acceptance. It has a philosophy of life which places sport in the service of humankind; its vision being to build a better world through sport. Its values and principles include respect, friendship, diversity and autonomy. By awarding the games to China for the 2022 Winter Olympics, the IOC – International Olympic Committee has shown that when it comes to China; it is willing to turn a blind eye to human rights abuses.
This is a betrayal of the olmpic movement and especially the people of Tibet; who now live under the crippling rule of the Chinese Communist Party – the CCP. The 2022 Winter Olympics will be held freely in Beijing; but witout a demonstration of strength by groups and organisations opposing the regime. With no chance of improving the Chinese stance on human rights; or any prospect of the IOC changing its decision; it is left to groups, organisations and individuals to make a stand; hence the reason for me issuing this post in support of the people of Tibet; people who’s voices have been silenced for so long.
Prior to the 2008 Olympics, the CCP in China made a series of promises that China would become more open, and embrace human rights. These promises were quickly cast aside with a brutal crackdown on peaceful protesters on the eve of the 2008 games. Over one hundred Tibetans were KILLED; many mnore were arrested, tortured and forcibly relocated.
For 13 years Beijing has been punishing Tibetans for protesting about the Beijing Olympics 2008. This year, 2021, Tibet was classified vy the think tank Freedom House as the worst place in the world for civil liberties. Meanwhile, the CCP is currently committing genocide against the Tibetan Uyghur peoples; with many of the tactics being used against the Uyghur people from contolling tactics developed by China in Tibet.
The IOC let the people of Tibet down by their actions in 2008. So now I want to kake you aware of the situation and why we say ‘NO Beijing 2022’ until the people of Tibet are free as an independent state (as they were before the Chinese invasion).
Animals rights, human rights; when things are wrong, you have to take action by being a voice. We are not afraid to take action.
Freedom for the good people of Tibet.
