Free Tibet London – Take action for Tashi Wangchuk. London Demo Friday 27th Jan 17.



Take action for Tashi Wangchuk


Write to your embassy about imprisoned language advocate


The Tibetan language advocate Tashi Wangchuk could face trial at any time following the conclusion of a second investigation into his case this month. If found guilty he faces up to 15 years in jail.

Tashi Wangchuk has been in detention since January 2016 and has been charged with “inciting separatism”. China has provided no evidence that he has committed any crime.

He has had little access to family and his lawyers have only been able to visit him twice. There is a high risk of him facing a trial that is neither fair nor transparent.

We continue to push for Tashi Wangchuk’s release, but it is also vital that if he does go to trial, international observers are there. Call on your embassy in China to urgently raise Tashi Wangchuk’s case with the authorities, and to send observers to any trial that he faces.

Send a message in support –



Tashi Wangchuk has spent a year in detention and now faces up to 15 years in prison.

His arrest in 2016 followed his peaceful campaign to encourage China’s authorities to ensure that the Tibetan language is taught throughout Tibet. He has not committed any crime and China’s constitution guarantees Tibetans the right to use and develop their own languages.

After the completion of a second investigation into his case, the way is now clear for him to stand trial on charges of “attempting to split the Chinese state”. Tibetans detained for such state security crimes are often tried in secret under conditions that do not meet international standards of fairness or transparency. China must be put under international pressure to ensure that Tashi Wangchuk receives a fair trial, and that if there is no evidence against him, that he is immediately released from detention.

Please fill in your details below and the email will be sent directly to the United Kingdom’s Embassy in China. You can also amend the title and text of the email, to write a message in your own words.

Hold Back Your Tears ! – Adorable Little Girl Gets A New Kitten And Cries Tears Of Joy.


Adorable little girl meets kitten for the first time and cries tears of pure joy!! – Marley & Ella

A nine-year-old girl cried tears of joy when she came home from a friend’s house one day and found a tiny black kitten in her bedroom.

All this happened last summer when Marley’s mother, Nikki, brought home a black kitten that was found under her friend’s porch with her sibling. It was believed that their mother had been killed on the road. The little black kitty was a mini version of Marley’s best friend Simon the cat, who sadly had passed away the year before.

“Marley’s a big animal lover. She’s always putting her change in the donation cans at the pet supply store, and we already have two dogs, two cats and a guinea pig in our family,” explained Nikki. “Our elderly black cat Simon had passed away the year before and she’d been asking for a kitten since.”
