Stop Torture in Tibet website reopens

12th March 2013

The Free Tibet Stop Torture mini-site has now reopened.

Torture is an everyday reality in Tibet, used by China as a weapon against dissent and to create a climate of fear.

On the Stop Torture site you can learn more about torture in Tibet in a quiz.

And you can read the stories of torture survivors or watch or listen as actors read their testimonies.
