Students for a Free Tibet (SFT) invites you to join us in marking 10 years since the 2008 uprising in Tibet and the Beijing Olympics campaign. 2008 saw unprecedented demonstrations around the world in support of the Tibetan people’s struggle for freedom and independence. Inside Tibet, demonstrations spread across the three Tibetan provinces and involved everyone from monks and nuns to lay people, farmers, students, and nomads.

The 2008 uprising was a critical moment in Tibet’s history of resistance, reawakening a new generation of activists both inside and outside Tibet. To commemorate 10 years since, we invite everyone to join in honoring the actions that took place around the world for Tibet’s freedom.

Former Tibetan political prisoner Dhondup Wangchen will be joining us as our guest of honor, alongside activists who were part of the international 2008 actions and the young leaders who are shaping the future of our movement.

Together, let’s share our experiences and celebrate the resistance.
