China’s state violence is out of hand in Tibet. On July 7, more than 100 Tibetans were brutally beaten and tear-gassed for protesting mining operations at local mountains. Several people were hospitalized, including a 70-year-old Tibetan man named Sogrui Pewang.

We stand with the Tibetans in Yushul who are risking their lives to protect their mountains, and support their demand to immediately halt China’s mining operations in the area. Read our statement here.

As we continue to monitor the situation, we acknowledge that our work supporting Tibetans in Tibet will not be over until Tibet is Free. Your contribution ensures that we have a vibrant team dedicated to working for the rights of Tibetans like 70-year-old Sogrui Pewang, who believe in defending the sanctity of their land and mountains.
