Resource Description

For over six-decades China has occupied Tibet. In recent years widespread popular protests have erupted across the Tibetan plateau and China has flooded Tibet with armed troops virtually sealing it off from the world.

 

In spite of this military stranglehold a new generation of Tibetans has embraced nonviolent resistance tactics that defy Beijing’s authority, strengthen Tibetan identity, and inspire hope.

 

Tibet Groups have been working to highlight and celebrate Tibetan Cultural Resistance  by amplifying the voices of courageous singers, writers and bloggers who are devoting their work to the enduring spirit of Tibetan resistance.
