FT robbed resistors

As part of Robed Resisters campaign we’re working hard to obtain information from Tibet about individual religious political prisoners. We can use that information to give prisoners hope, to challenge the abuses they face in prison and press for them to be freed.

Can you help us? We’ll be regularly highlighting different cases and this month we’re focusing on Tsangyang Gyatso:

Tsangyang Gyatso is a senior and highly respected monk from central Tibet. He was arrested in March 2014 and later that year sentenced to 12 years in prison for carrying out “separatist” activities – allegedly having contact with people outside of Tibet and meeting with other monks to organise protests.

Tibetan monks and nuns like Tsangyang Gyatso continue to play central roles in standing up to China’s oppression.

Earlier this month we learnt that two teenaged monks have received sentences of several years after peaceful protests.

Both had been missing since their arrests in March. Fearful of Tibetan resistance, China continues to target monks and nuns.

Please join us in supporting Tibet’s Robed Resisters.
