Kunchok Jinpa, a Tibetan tour guide, died on 6 February of a brain hemorrhage after spending seven years in a Chinese prison. He died in hospital without his family by his side because the authorities failed to tell that he had been taken critically unwell.
The cruel, inhuman treatment of Tibetans by the Chinese government must end, and our governments must not allow China to get away with it.
Kunchok Jinpa is the second Tibetan - that we know of - to die this year due to the brutal treatment received in a Chinese prison. In January 19-year-old Tenzin Nyima was literally beaten to death by Chinese police after he’d take part in a protest calling for independence for Tibet.
This time next year China is set to host the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games and will use the chance opportunity to gloss over its violent occupation of Tibet and its widescale human rights abuses.
TAKE ACTION - Join the growing call for governments to boycott the Beijing 2022 Olympics; anything less will be seen as support for the Chinese government's brutal occupation of Tibet and blatant disregard for human rights.
