On 1 October 2020, a global coalition of groups will be participating in a Global Day of Action to Resist the CCP in over 50 cities in 25 countries all around the world.
Free Tibet and the Tibet Society, along with supporters, will be participating in this Global Day of Action and we need you to get involved too! We are planning both an online and physical action. So whether you are in London and want to come and protest outside the Chinese Embassy, or anywhere else in the world and want to add your voice to ours with an online show of defiance, you can be involved.
From Tokyo to San Francisco, London to Mexico City, Ulaanbaatar to Vancouver, thousands of activists from all over the world will come together to stand up for the rights of Tibetans, Uyghurs, Hong Kongers, Southern Mongolians, Taiwanese, Chinese and all those in the struggle against CCP rule.
This Global Day of Action marks the 71st anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). It is a day that is annually observed and celebrated by President Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
We want to resist this day.
Since the founding of the PRC, the CCP’s human rights record has been appalling. In 1950, the newly established PRC invaded Tibet.
The CCP’s crackdown against democracy and human rights has intensified across China, and we are witnessing a gross increase on the assault on communities living under its rule
- Occupied Tibet is one of the least free places in the world
- Millions of Uyghurs are detained in mass internment camps
- Loss of fundamental freedoms in Hong Kong
- Erasure of Southern Mongolian culture and language
- Detention and disappearance of countess Chinese lawyers, feminists and activists
In addition to the repression of people under its rule, the CCP’s aggressive foreign policy and lack of transparency has proved to be a threat to global security. This is evident in its dangerous attempts to suppress information about the coronavirus outbreak, its intimidation and geopolitical bullying of Taiwan, its increased military expansion in the South China Sea and its role in deadly skirmishes on the India-Tibet border.
It is up to us to resist this future, by finding common cause and pushing together for freedom, human rights and self-determination for those under CCP rule.
To build a better future, we must push our governments to resist the CCP.
