Half-yearly meeting of the GSTF and book presentation "Focus Tibet"

Thinlay Chukki, the representative of the Dalai Lama, presented "Focus Tibet" on November 05, 2022 as part of our second semi-annual meeting of the GSTF.

Focus Tibet is a book by Dr. Uwe Meya (GSTF Board Member) summarizing decades of news about oppression in Tibet.

The book contains summaries of news about the situation in Tibet, which were compiled by the author from 2000-2022 and published regularly as part of information and awareness-raising campaigns on the situation in Tibet.

It documents the systematic repression and continued repression in Tibet under Chinese occupation. More information and order here…

Then in 1989 he became a founding member of the Tibet Initiative Germany eV (TID). Since then, Uwe has been actively involved in Tibet and helps raise awareness of Tibet in German-speaking countries.
