Tibetan Political Prisoners

There are hundreds of Tibetan political prisoners held by Chinese authorities for opposing, or criticizing China’s rule of Tibet.

Free Tibetan Heroes is a global campaign highlighting Tibetans who – like so many Tibetans – have risked their own freedom to advocate for the rights of their people and to resist Chinese policies in Tibet. They are true heroes and their actions represent the wishes and aspirations of countless Tibetans living under Chinese rule.
