This year, on February 13, SFT will commemorate Tibetan Independence Day with the theme of 'Reclaim Tibet' to highlight the historical map of Tibet and expose the map of China's Tibetan Autonomous Region that ignores the Tibetan provinces of Kham and Amdo. We will highlight how the 2008 uprising, spreading to all three traditional provinces, has reasserted the territorial map of Tibet. Just as Tibetans inside Tibet continue to reclaim Tibet through their protests, stories, poetry, music, and art, we will use this campaign as a platform to secure Tibet's proud past and shape its future. A global commemoration of this symbolic and empowering history will help to renew spirits, reaffirm a global vision of freedom for Tibet and strengthen the Tibetan people's struggle for freedom. | Visit www.reclaimtibet.com and www.studentsforafreetibet.org for more information.
