Tibet Watch works to promote the human rights of the Tibetan people through monitoring, research and advocacy. We are a UK registered charity with an office in London and a field office in Dharamsala, India. We believe in the power of bearing witness, the power of truth.
“Oppressors will always deny that they are oppressors. All I can do is bear witness and set down what I saw and heard and what the strange journey of my life has been. Suffering is written now in the valleys and mountains of Tibet. Every village and monastery in the Land of Snows has its own stories of the cruelty inflicted on our people. And that suffering will go on until the day Tibet is free.”
Palden Gyatso, former political prisoner
Where does the information go?
Most of our monitoring information is shared with the world via our campaigns partner, Free Tibet. Through them, we are able to reach international media and our Media Impact page tracks which websites have used our information.
Environmental Protests in Tibet
Protests on environmental issues in Tibet have taken many different forms and used some very creative methods. Tibet Watch has collated reports of the protests we have confirmed over the last few years and presented them here, together with the key issues. You can download the full report (left) or click through to our Reports page.
