Having endured freezing temperatures and the ever present hazards of traffic since walking from Philadelphia to New York City, the magnificent seven Tibetan marchers for Tibet’s independence will be arriving outside the UN building at 8.30 AM. Later in the day there’s a rally including guest speakers; Sonam Wangdu, Jamyang Norbu, Dorjee Tseten and Tseten Lhagyal, all strong voices for Tibet’s national freedom. If you can make it do come along and show your solidarity.

Let’s hear it for the magnificent seven Tibetans currently walking from Philadelphia to New York City; Kunga Norbu, son of Dalai Lama’s older brother, Taktser Rinpoche, Tenzin Wangdue, executive member, Regional Tibetan Youth Congress, New York, Sunny Sonam, organizer of the North American Miss Tibet, Lobga Rangzen, executive member, Regional Tibetan Youth Congress, New York, Samgha, antiques dealer, Dhondup Lhadar, former executive member, Tibetan Youth Congress, Dharamsala.
All of whom are commited to Tibetan independence and through this action wish to show solidarity with their compatriots inside occupied Tibet, raise awareness of the Tibetan issue and to demonstrate support for the just cause of Tibetan independence. They also have released five demands of national and local government, and the United Nations, which seek more active support for and recognition of Tibet’s sovereignty.

As their press statement notes: “Without restoring independence, Tibetans shall have no future. We urge all freedom and justice loving people to support us. All of us marchers are staunch believers in the restoration of Tibetan independence; in the past, to demand independence for Tibet, we had sat on hunger strikes for more than a month in India and US. Moreover, we had marched for thousands of miles and led many other campaigns aimed at restoring Tibetan independence.”
They arrive at NYC on March 9 and will be outside the UN Headquarters.
To anyone who would like to spend a few minutes online in support of Tibet’s just cause then we’ve excellent news for you!
March 10 is the Commemoration of the Lhasa Uprising of 1959, an important date within the Tibetan calendar.
It serves as a focal point to remember all those Tibetans who have given so much for Tibet’s national freedom and provides an opportunity for the exiled Tibetan community to remind the world about the plight of occupied Tibet and the hopes of its people to be free from Chinese occupation and tyranny.
Now not everyone can make it to their nearest Tibet rally, of which there will be many world-wide on that day. But there is an action you could take that’s in total solidarity with the March 10 protests.
With a few swipes and taps of the screen you can ensure that the the political aspirations of the Tibetan people reaches your political representative and government. This is critically important, as many within the political establishment are either unaware or misinformed about Tibet. Ask yourself, does your representative realize that Tibet was an independent nation, which has been illegally occupied? Let them know between now and March 10.
We’ve provided all the information needed in a Tibet Action Pack, it’s simple, will take only a few online moments, yet is powerful and critical information that presents the facts on Tibet’s independence and also poses an important question.
For the EU
What an excellent job from Students For Free Tibet-India who organized a rock concert to mark Tibetan Independence Day and raise awareness about Tibet’s just cause and the plight of Tibetans under illegal Chinese rule. Held in the Indian capital of New Delhi it was a hugely successful event with a number of high profile bands taking part.
The action on Tibet this Tibetan Independence Day has been white hot.
Our crew over on Twitter have been reporting on the Anonymous strikes against Chinese government sites.
Working in support of ‘Operation Tibet’ activists called #Op_Tibet #blackhat_global and #teamriddler caused havoc to many sites run by China’s regime. Hundreds were hacked as reported by #blackhat_global with sensitive data exposed and vulnerable to further attacks. Others targets have been crashed and taken offline, cutting off the oxygen to the propaganda and lies such sites push.
It’s been truly amazing to see such solidarity, particularly on a day of such importance in the Tibetan calendar, when Tibet’s independence is honored and remembered.
We want to pay serious credit to @tibettruth for their tireless efforts in channeling news and networking. Special thanks and total respect to all those Anonymous activists within #Op_Tibet #teamriddler and #blackhat_global for donating your skills, support and commitment in your collective actions.
Lastly please put your hands together for the following @AnonymousTibet @anonriddler @teamriddler @_The_Puni_sher_ @Obrigadatialeni

Earlier we were informed by our team on Twitter that ‘Operation Tibet’ was today launched by Anonymous activists, reports from @AnonymousTibet and @anonriddler at that time referenced two Chinese regime websites which had been attacked and taken offline.
Since then we’ve read that a further four sites run by the Chinese government have been hacked and crashed, these are being reported on our Facebook and Twitter pages. So do visit @digitalactivism (Facebook) and @tibettruth (Twitter) for latest updates.
There will no doubt be further actions and these will be posted across our social-media channels once confirmed. Until then major appreciation to all those within #teamriddler #blackhat_global #Op_Tibet for such active solidarity, especially on Tibetan Independence Day!

With Tibetan Independence Day arriving tomorrow along with the launch of Anonymous action in support of Tibet news just dropped in from our Twitter team about a strike against a Chinese government website by ‘Operation Tibet’. Information posted on social media reveals the action was taken in response to an attempted cyber attack which was made against our email account./. Genuine thanks to @tibettruth and @_The_Puni_sher_ for sharing news on this
Many thanks to @Op_TibetHQ @AnonymousTibet
Subscribers and visitors will realize that a central objective of our activism is to expose and challenge the disinformation and propaganda of China’s regime and its allies. As such we are engaged in an information campaign to reach out across social-media to the many who have little or no idea about Tibet and the plight of its people.
Our main platforms for such action involve Twitter and Facebook, and thanks to the dedication and creativeness of amazing colleagues we’ve established a strong profile and presence for Tibet’s cause.
In addition this site is an important and resource-rich source of information, online actions and news on Tibet. It’s global reach is impressive and we monitor traffic regularly and note rising numbers of views from within China.
We’d like to expand on such progress and to that end we recently upgraded its functionality, navigation and look to ensure a fast and easy access to our information, performing across a range of devices.
Help Us Build Global Connections
You can easily help give greater exposure and reach to our site, and in doing so connect even more people across the internet to the facts on Tibet.
If you have a Blog, website or social media page we ask you to please consider placing a link to our site https://tibettruth.com
Such a simple action, collectively, will be a direct assistance in further increasing our site’s prominence on search-engines. A development which we are sure will bring a frown to the faces of China’s regime 🙂
Our resolution for 2019 is to continue reporting and opposing the tyranny of China’s regime against the Tibetan people. In addition we’ll be exposing those governments, institutions, politicians, corporations and media who choose to appease China. Across social-media our amazing team on Twitter and Facebook shall ensure that the just cause of Tibet is given a clear, accurate and determined presentation. Those who misrepresent Tibet’s history, it’s present situation or the plight of Tibetans will be vigorously challenged.
There’s four main areas of activism forming our focus this year.
On February 13 we shall be celebrating ‘Tibetan Independence Day’ raising awareness across social-media of Tibet’s rightful claim to national freedom.
In the week before March 10 we’ll be launching our online lobby of political representatives, to make sure that Tibet’s cause for independence is represented to your politician.
Following that action from March 11 through March 22 we report on and challenge the anticipated silence of the 63rd United Nations Commission On The Status Of Women and its associated NGO Forum on the issue of China’s forced sterilizations. We have friends who will be on site monitoring developments.
Then during May we’ll be actively supporting @Glasto4TIBET who will be present across the Festival during June 26 through 30 to raise the Tibetan national flag and enegage with folks about the cause of Tibet.
As ever we welcome and invite your participation in these actions. Keep updated and informed by following @tibettruth
