A message from Tenzin Sonam

Pass it forward.
Dear Friends, Starting 1st through September 5th, the Chinese government is featuring"Tibet Week" at the Shanghai World Expo in an attempt to claim Tibetan cultureas its own and whitewash its abysmal human rights record in Tibet. The theme of "Tibet Week" is "Heaven in Tibet." Nothing could be further fromthe truth in Chinese-occupied Tibet. While the Chinese government parades state-sponsored Tibetan culture on thestage in Shanghai, scores of Tibetan artists, writers, musicians, bloggers, andother public figures have been arrested, imprisoned, harassed, or disappearedfor speaking out about the aspirations, the hardships, and the deepening pride and unity of Tibetans living under Chinese occupation.

TAKE ACTION: Stop the Attack on Tibet's Culture

  1. This would be a good week to refrain from purchasing Mainland Chinese products.


Be polite.
