The goal of this project is to bring world-wide attention to the situtation in Tibet. While many people know that Tibet is under Chinese colonial rule, few are aware of the extensive human rights violations which are being perpetrated against the Tibetan people. Restrictions are placed on religious expression; monastaries and nunneries are attacked, nuns or monks expelled or imprisoned; Tibetan children are forbidden to learn their own language or study their culture; political dissidents are silenced through imprisonment, torture, and death; and women are are forced to undergo abortions and sterilizations.

A deliberate cultural genocide is being perpetrated in Tibet, and the gentle, peaceful Tibetan culture is under a real threat of becoming extinct if the world community does not act now.
