The Truth about Tibet: Hear Their Stories

Feb 13, 2012

Building Relationships and Filming Survivors

According to the Associated Press "Another Tibetan has set himself on fire in western China to protest government policies" and he's not the only one. In addition to this 19 year old monk that recently set himself ablaze, everyday Tibetans are protesting all the ways in which their government has chosen to ignore the cries of its people. Self immolation, large marches and rallies, and various other public protests are continuing to take over the streets of Tibet.

While we are awaiting the funds to help Tibet in bigger ways, we are continuing to cultivate relationships with Tibetan people and organizations such as the Tibet Fund. The Tibet Fund's goal is "to preserve the distinct cultural and national identity of the Tibetan people." We have a similar goal: this year we plan to film Tibetan survivors and refugees, allowing them to share their stories, and hopefully encouraging the type of support and help that this region desperately needs.
