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
Blood on the Snows
On Human Rights Day 2015, we issued a report pulling together all the evidence that we presented to the UN Committee Against Torture, as well as summarising our engagement with them and what we were able to achieve. This report is also our tribute to the bravery of all Tibetans who have suffered torture as a result of their resistance to the occupation.
Environmental protests in Tibet
Protests on environmental issues in Tibet have taken many different forms and used some very creative methods.
