“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. […]
Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt

圖博/西藏因其特殊的地理環境,在數千年的適應之後,建立了不同於其他民族的生活方式,而放牧便是藏人之中非常具有特色的生活方式之一。從1959年開始,圖博/西藏在中國統治下將屆一甲子,在各方面都受到以現代化與發展為名、同化與殖民為實的各種迫害;牧民傳統的生活方式也因此受到重大威脅。

在「世界人權日」這天,我們希望能夠邀請你,一起來從牧民的生活了解圖博/西藏,進一步看見他們在數十年中所受到的壓迫。今年世界人權日的主題是「為他人挺身而出」(Stand up for someone’s rights),希望你能和我們一起,為圖博/西藏挺身而出。

我們會播放環境研究者Michael Buckley的紀錄短片《牧民變遊民》(From Nomad to Nobody)並對圖博/西藏的環境以及生活方式的現況和侵害進行簡單的介紹;同時,我們也會介紹一些為了圖博/西藏的自由努力、特別關心牧民與環境議題的人權捍衛者,歡迎一起來討論!

Due to the special environment on the plateau, Tibetans have evolved some distictive ways of life after thousands of years– and being a nomad is one of them. However, after the Chinese’s colonialzation in Tibet for almost 60 years, Tibetans have faced oppression in the name of modernization and development but assimilation and colonialization in reality; and their lifestyle is facing severe threats.

On the Human Rights Day this year, we’d love to invite you to know more about the life and struggle of Tibetan nomads, and really see the oppression they’ve been facing for decades. The theme of Human Rights Day this year is “stand up for someone’s rights,” and we do hope we can stand up for Tibet together.

We’re going to screen the short documentary FROM NOMADS TO NOBODY by environmental researcher Michael Buckley, and have a brief introduction on the current situation of Tibetan environment & lifestyle, and the crisis they’re confronting. Meanwhile, we’ll also introduce some human rights defenders who struggle for Tibetans, especially nomads’, rights. We’re looking forward to meet you here!
