Every country marks significant historical dates in its founding as a nation. Regardless of its current political status, Tibet is no exception and Students for a Free Tibet has set aside February 13th as an important day to commemorate Tibet’s independent past. In occupied countries, observing independence day is a powerful expression of a people’s desire for freedom.Since 2013, February 13th has been celebrated in over 30 cities worldwide.
This year we will commemorate Tibetan Independence day with the theme of ‘Celebrate Potala’.
