10 March 2008 saw the start of a wave of sustained protests across Tibet by thousands of Tibetans who rose up against China’s brutal occupation. Large and small protests swept across the Tibetan Plateau with a force unseen since Beijing crushed freedom demonstrations in 1989, and continued for the remainder of the year with more than 150 documented across the Tibetan Plateau. The overwhelming majority of the protests were non-violent in nature.

The 2008 Tibetan Uprising heralded a new wave of resistance among Tibetans in Tibet to which China has responded with a wholesale and deeply disturbing crackdown, permeating Tibetans’ everyday lives with its security apparatus and violating a wide range of human rights.

Protests have continued on a regular basis, albeit less frequently, ever since March 2008 and the Global Tibet Movement has responded by building a number of strong campaigns to work in solidarity with Tibetans in Tibet, pushing our governments to support Tibet and building pressuring China directly.

Unser Protest und die dazugehörige Brief-Aktion waren erfolgreich! Ursprünglich sollte die Tierfilmreihe bis zum 15. März 2022 in der ARD-Mediathek verfügbar sein. Nun wurde die Kooperation mit dem chinesischen Staatssender CCTV und der BBC vorzeitig entfernt. Damit konnten wir ein wichtiges Zeichen gegen die Einflussnahme der kommunistischen Partei Chinas in deutschen Medien setzen.

In diesem gestern ausgestrahlten Interview auf Massengeschmack.TV hatte Geschäftsführerin Tenzyn Zöchbauer die Möglichkeit, über die Hintergründe der Aktion und die aktuelle Situation in Tibet aufzuklären.

Vielen Dank an alle, für die Unterstützung und Teilnahme an der Aktion! Wir werden weiterhin für eine realistische Berichterstattung aus Tibet kämpfen! #TibetUnzensiert #CancelChinaPropaganda
