About Free Tibet
Formed in 1987 Free Tibet is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation that campaigns for Tibetan self-determination, human rights and an end to Chinese occupation.
We are independent of government and funded almost entirely by our members and supporters. We have the largest membership of any Tibet support organisation.
Each supporter, who signs up for membership, receives regular updates on the situation inside Tibet, campaign actions and special offers. Our volunteers, supporters and members are the people who make our work possible.
Information and campaigning
Free Tibet is at the forefront of breaking news from inside Tibet. We are a trusted and accurate source of information for global media. We are regularly cited and quoted in Tibet-related news.
In addition, our team of staff and volunteers run a number of campaigns. We advocate to stop torture, we lobby on behalf of political prisoners and we put pressure on international governments and businesses to stop their acceptance of China’s occupation of Tibet.
Since 1987, we have been generating active support through public education about the situation in Tibet. Our executive committee determines general policy which guides our campaign work.
With the help of 50 legal and financially autonomous support groups (mostly in the UK) who take part in co-ordinated action, talks and fundraising events, we raise awareness, promote our work and strive for freedom for Tibet.
