About Free Tibet
Formed in 1987 Free Tibet is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation.
Our vision is a free Tibet in which Tibetans are able to determine their own future and the human rights of all are respected.
Free Tibet campaigns for an end to China's occupation of Tibet and for international recognition of Tibetans' right to freedom. We mobilise active support for the Tibetan cause, champion human rights and challenge those whose actions sustain the occupation.
We are independent of all governments (including the Central Tibetan Administration) and funded entirely by our members and supporters from all over the world.
