Tibet is a country high in the Himalayan mountains. By land mass, it should be the world’s 10th largest nation.
China invaded Tibet in 1950. Inside its borders and across the world, Tibetans have never stopped believing Tibet is a nation.
After more than 70 years of occupation, Tibetans still resist China’s rule and defy its oppression.
"Tibetan[s] are denied fundamental rights, but the authorities are especially rigorous in suppressing any signs of dissent among Tibetans, including manifestations of Tibetan religious beliefs and cultural identity."– Freedom in the World Report by Freedom House, 2021
