Tibetans are dying at the hands of Chinese authorities.
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 them that he had been taken critically unwell.
In January 19-year-old Tenzin Jinpa was literally beaten to death by Chinese police after he’d taken part in a protest calling for independence for Tibet. Tenzin had been arrested alongside six other monks - the youngest just 15 years old at the time.
A year on from their arrest and we still do not know where Tsultrim, Nyimay, Choegyal, Woeser, Choephel, or Yonten are being held. They are now disappeared like so many other Tibetans who are currently detained or who have lost their lives for their peaceful struggle for Tibetan rights.
In a matter of months, China is set to host the prestigious Winter Olympic Games and will use the opportunity to gloss over its violent occupation of Tibet, wide-scale human rights abuses, and the deaths and disappearance of innocent Tibetans.
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.
