“Tibet Society has a special place in the hearts of HH the Dalai Lama & the Tibetan people”

http://www.tibetsociety.com @tibetsociety #TibetSociety www.keeptibetalive.com

“Tibet Society has a special place in the hearts of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people. We wish them the very best.” 

We are honoured and humbled by these kind words written by Dr. Lobsang Sangay, the Sikyong, the democratically elected head of the Tibetan people and political successor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Tibet Society was founded shortly after the invasion and is the world’s oldest established Tibet support group. Over those years we have campaigned hard for Tibet, engaging with governments and working internationally, as well as helping many Tibetan individuals both here in the UK and abroad. With your help Tibet Society has ambitious plans to deliver a great deal over the next 12 months, but we need your support.

Tibet Society have managed to ensure the Tibetan people’s demands for human rights and freedom has resonated in Westminster. As Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet we work closely with MPs who have a special interest in Tibet and help devise strategies to keep Tibet on the political agenda. This is the “gateway to government” for all the Tibetan organisations in the UK and it has a genuinely international significance for the Tibetan movement. We are committed to working closely with other organisations both in the UK and internationally for Tibet.

The new APPGT has two committed co-chairs and we will be seeking to bring on board more MPs from the 2017 intake. We are arranging meetings for Tibetans to give testimonies to MPs and Foreign Office officials and we are developing our MP exchange programme which fosters relations between the British and Tibetan exiled parliaments. Such visits not only strengthen support for Tibet in Westminster but also help the exiled government with developing democratic processes.

However, the struggle for freedom in Tibet is now in a crucial phase. Tibetans in Tibet are giving their very lives to protest against China’s continuing repressive policies. China’s crackdown on basic rights and freedoms in Tibet continues unabated. Now, China exercises huge economic global influence and invests in soft power initiatives including the Chinese Embassy arranging visits from the Tibetan Autonomous Region to the UK. We need your support to help us to continue to campaign for Tibet and amplify the authentic voices of real Tibetan people.

All this work, and more, would not be possible without your support. Please help us to continue this vital work, which not only ensures that Tibet remains on the political agenda but ensures that Tibetan voices calling for freedom are heard in the UK and across the world.

Unfortunately, Tibet Society cannot qualify for charitable status because our core aims, such as supporting self-determination for Tibetans, lobbying governments, and protesting about human rights abuses, are classified as political by the Charity Commission. That shuts off many potential sources of income and makes us much more dependant than other Tibet groups on our members and supporters for funding.

2017 Endorsement

Remember Tibet in your will …

By coincidence I came across an old appeal, which probably comes from the 1960s, the telephone number is “VICtoria 4342”!

Tibet Society 1960s 533x800

This reminder of time passing has prompted me to ask you to consider making provision in your will for a bequest to Tibet Society. The need for financial help has never been greater. Tibet has suffered enormously since the annexation of the country by the Chinese government in 1959, when the Dalai Lama was forced to flee across the border into India, where he remains to this day.

Sadly, there seems to be no day in sight when our help and campaigning will not be needed so any legacies for the future are an important part of our income stream.

Please read the material below and then set up a legacy.

May I thank you on behalf of Tibetans everywhere.

Making a bequest in your will to Tibet Society

To be legally valid, a bequest form must be included in the body of your will or as a codicil.  You may wish to use a solicitor to ensure that all the legal formalities are correctly followed. Knowing that your will is valid and expresses your exact wishes will give you peace of mind.

Your bequest can take one of three forms:

  • Residuary legacy: part of your estate remaining after family and friends have been looked after
  • Pecuniary legacy: a lump sum of money
  • Specific items: for example, real estate or shares

If you would like to leave a bequest to Tibet Society, we have provided the words below as a guide, although of course you or your solicitor may want to adapt them to meet your individual circumstances.

For a residuary legacy

“Subject as foresaid I GIVE AND BEQUEATH the whole of my Estate (or x% of the residue of my Estate) whatsoever and wheresoever both real and personal absolutely to Tibet Society of 2 Baltic Place, London, N1V 5AQ. for the General Purposes of Tibet Society and AND I DECLARE the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper Officer for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors”.

For a pecuniary legacy

“I GIVE AND BEQUEATH the sum of £x to Tibet Society of 2 Baltic Place, London, N1V 5AQ for the General Purposes of Tibet Society AND I DECLARE the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper Officer for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors”.

Should you wish to ensure that the sum of money you are leaving now will have the same relative value at the date of your death as it does now, please include the following wording after the above: “The amount of this legacy to Tibet Society shall be regarded as a provisional amount only and the amount payable shall be that provisional amount or if greater that provisional amount index linked to the retail prices index from the date of this Will to the date of my death”.

Liverpool FC’s sanctimonious evasive response to complaints about @LFC deal with a Chinese company exploiting occupied Tibet. @LiverpoolFC are taking no responsibility for the consequences of this deal, #LFC bring great shame on the great city of Liverpool.

“Thank you for contacting Liverpool Football Club.

I am sorry to hear that you have concerns about our partnership.

Such concerns would need to be raised directly with Tibet Water.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards
Laura Liverpool Football Club”

Tibet Water Resources has an ownership trail leading to relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders including the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, Li Xiaobing and her husband Wallace Yu Yiping.

Liverpool’s deal with Tibet Water Resources has boosted its share price. Tracking shares of Tibet Water Resources Ltd (1115.HK), we have noted that the SuperTrend is currently higher than recent stock price levels, the stock has entered into a buying territory.

 

Please call on Liverpool FC @LFC #LFC to ditch this deal over #TibetWater https://www.change.org/p/liverpool-fc-call-on-liverpool-fc-to-terminate-its-deal-with-chinese-company-tibet-water-resources-ltd #Liverpool #liverpoolfootballclub #liverpoolnews #TheReds, #KeepTibetAlive

 

 

“The match is yet to begin and Liverpool has already conceded a goal. It is an own goal by Liverpool FC to deal with a Chinese commercial company that exploits Tibet’s resources. Liverpool Football Club must understand the sufferings and sentiments of Tibetan people. Partnering with Tibet Water Resources Limited is like endorsing the occupation of Tibet and agreeing with treatment of Tibetans by Chinese regime”, said Pempa Lobsang, the chairman of the Tibetan Community in Britain.

 

A niece of former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, the “chief architect of economic reforms” who opened the People’s Republic of China to the market economy, is associated with the scandal “Papers of Panama,” the South China Morning Post.

According to the diary of the neighboring Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which had access to research papers from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) on offshore companies, the list also includes a grandson of Jia Qinglin , a high profile of the Chinese communist regime over the past decade.

Mossack Fonseca’s China offices have created 16,300 front companies, or 29 percent of all companies created by the Panamanian law firm at the center of the scandal. Li Xiaobing, Deng’s niece and her husband, Wallace Yu Yiping, are listed as directors of a company called Water Enterprises, headquartered in the British Virgin Islands, the SCMP said.

This firm, which is associated with the Chinese bottled water company Tibet Water Resources, shared management with another company called Yu Space-owned Galaxia Space Management.

Wallace Yu was one of the co-founders of Tibet Water Resources – formerly called Tibet 5100 Water Resources – one of the largest companies in the sector in China and listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange through a firm based in the Cayman Islands.

According to the South China Morning Post, the involvement of Deng’s niece is due to Chinese regulations that prevent her companies from being listed outside mainland China. To escape Beijing’s restrictions, entities open branches in other countries.

The same newspaper also exposed the grandson of Jia Qinglin, who chaired the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the main consultation body of the Government and the Communist Party of China between 2008 and 2013 as the owner of offshore firms. Li Pak-tam has owned a company in the British Virgin Islands called Fung Shing Development, established in 2000.

His daughter, Li Zidan, owned two other companies registered in that tax haven, the same newspaper said.
Relatives of ex-Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping are HK residents – Panama Papers report

4 May 2016 11:57

More relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders have been found to be Hong Kong residents, according to the latest batch of leaked Panama Papers.

11.5 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca were obtained securely from an anonymous source over a year ago by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung. The data was shared with The International Consortium of Investigative Journalism (ICIJ), which enlisted help from other media outlets.

According to Ming Pao, among those named were Li Xiaobing, the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, and Li’s husband Wallace Yu Yiping. Both were directors of two offshore companies – Water Enterprise Ltd and Tibet 5100 Water Resources Ltd – incorporated in the British Virgin Islands using their Hong Kong identity card numbers.

The leaked files showed Yu’s Hong Kong identity card was issued as early as November 1994, and he held permanent residency in Hong Kong. Yu was born on the mainland and – according to symbols on the card – his reported name has been changed since the first issuance.

Ming Pao reported that Yu and Li are both Canadian passport holders according to Hong Kong Company Registry records.

Yu was also a director of Galaxia Space Management Ltd, which has been unregistered.

No one answered the door as the newspaper’s reporters went to Yu’s address in Tung Chung.

Seven HK residents

It was previously reported that relatives of ten Chinese top political figures have been found to hold offshore companies, according to the Panama Papers. Of the ten, at least seven are either Hong Kong residents, have bought properties in Hong Kong or have business ties to the city.

The Chinese leaders involved were Xi Jinping, Zhang Gaoli, Liu Yunshan, Li Peng, Jia Qinglin, Zeng Qinghong, Tian Jiyun, Hu Yaobang, Mao Zedong and Bo Xilai.

In the latest revelations, Zhang Gaoli’s daughter Cheung Hiu-yin – a name romanised using Cantonese pronunciation – was also found to be a Hong Kong identity card holder. She owns a house at Palm Springs in Yuen Long with her Hong Kong husband Lee Shing-put.

Ming Pao reporters reached out to Cheung at the house but she refused to reveal when he became a Hong Kong resident.

Aside from Jia Qinglin’s granddaughter Jasmine Li, Li’s father Li Pak-tam was also found to be a Hong Kong resident.

According to HK01, the documents showed Li Pak-tam had been living with a woman called Lam Ching Joanna. She has been signing cheques for Li and recently paying annual fees for Li’s offshore companies, which correlated with a rumour that Lam Ching Joanna was a pseudonym for Li’s wife – Jia Qinglin’s daughter Jia Qiang.

It is not illegal for Chinese citizens to open offshore accounts or own offshore companies, but the Communist Party’s constitution bans party officials and family members from profiting from their positions.

The ICIJ’s reports did not give details on how the offshore companies are used, listing only documents and addresses showing ties to the people involved. It noted that there are legitimate uses for offshore companies.

We are honoured and humbled by these kind words written by Dr. Lobsang Sangay, the Sikyong, the democratically elected head of the Tibetan people and political successor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Tibet Society was founded shortly after the invasion and is the world’s oldest established Tibet support group. Over those years we have campaigned hard for Tibet, engaging with governments and working internationally, as well as helping many Tibetan individuals both here in the UK and abroad.

“Such concerns would need to be raised directly with Tibet Water” @LFC #LFC #TibetWater https://www.change.org/p/liverpool-fc-call-on-liverpool-fc-to-terminate-its-deal-with-chinese-company-tibet-water-resources-ltd #Liverpool #liverpoolfootballclub #liverpoolnews #TheReds, #KeepTibetAlive

Liverpool FC’s sanctimonious evasive response to complaints about @LFC deal with a Chinese company exploiting occupied Tibet. @LiverpoolFC are taking no responsibility for the consequences of this deal, #LFC bring great shame on the great city of Liverpool.

“Thank you for contacting Liverpool Football Club.

I am sorry to hear that you have concerns about our partnership.

Such concerns would need to be raised directly with Tibet Water.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards
Laura Liverpool Football Club”

Tibet Water Resources has an ownership trail leading to relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders including the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, Li Xiaobing and her husband Wallace Yu Yiping.

Liverpool’s deal with Tibet Water Resources has boosted its share price. Tracking shares of Tibet Water Resources Ltd (1115.HK), we have noted that the SuperTrend is currently higher than recent stock price levels, the stock has entered into a buying territory.

 

Please call on Liverpool FC @LFC #LFC to ditch this deal over #TibetWater https://www.change.org/p/liverpool-fc-call-on-liverpool-fc-to-terminate-its-deal-with-chinese-company-tibet-water-resources-ltd #Liverpool #liverpoolfootballclub #liverpoolnews #TheReds, #KeepTibetAlive

 

 

“The match is yet to begin and Liverpool has already conceded a goal. It is an own goal by Liverpool FC to deal with a Chinese commercial company that exploits Tibet’s resources. Liverpool Football Club must understand the sufferings and sentiments of Tibetan people. Partnering with Tibet Water Resources Limited is like endorsing the occupation of Tibet and agreeing with treatment of Tibetans by Chinese regime”, said Pempa Lobsang, the chairman of the Tibetan Community in Britain.

 

A niece of former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, the “chief architect of economic reforms” who opened the People’s Republic of China to the market economy, is associated with the scandal “Papers of Panama,” the South China Morning Post.

According to the diary of the neighboring Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which had access to research papers from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) on offshore companies, the list also includes a grandson of Jia Qinglin , a high profile of the Chinese communist regime over the past decade.

Mossack Fonseca’s China offices have created 16,300 front companies, or 29 percent of all companies created by the Panamanian law firm at the center of the scandal. Li Xiaobing, Deng’s niece and her husband, Wallace Yu Yiping, are listed as directors of a company called Water Enterprises, headquartered in the British Virgin Islands, the SCMP said.

This firm, which is associated with the Chinese bottled water company Tibet Water Resources, shared management with another company called Yu Space-owned Galaxia Space Management.

Wallace Yu was one of the co-founders of Tibet Water Resources – formerly called Tibet 5100 Water Resources – one of the largest companies in the sector in China and listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange through a firm based in the Cayman Islands.

According to the South China Morning Post, the involvement of Deng’s niece is due to Chinese regulations that prevent her companies from being listed outside mainland China. To escape Beijing’s restrictions, entities open branches in other countries.

The same newspaper also exposed the grandson of Jia Qinglin, who chaired the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the main consultation body of the Government and the Communist Party of China between 2008 and 2013 as the owner of offshore firms. Li Pak-tam has owned a company in the British Virgin Islands called Fung Shing Development, established in 2000.

His daughter, Li Zidan, owned two other companies registered in that tax haven, the same newspaper said.
Relatives of ex-Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping are HK residents – Panama Papers report

4 May 2016 11:57

More relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders have been found to be Hong Kong residents, according to the latest batch of leaked Panama Papers.

11.5 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca were obtained securely from an anonymous source over a year ago by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung. The data was shared with The International Consortium of Investigative Journalism (ICIJ), which enlisted help from other media outlets.

According to Ming Pao, among those named were Li Xiaobing, the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, and Li’s husband Wallace Yu Yiping. Both were directors of two offshore companies – Water Enterprise Ltd and Tibet 5100 Water Resources Ltd – incorporated in the British Virgin Islands using their Hong Kong identity card numbers.

The leaked files showed Yu’s Hong Kong identity card was issued as early as November 1994, and he held permanent residency in Hong Kong. Yu was born on the mainland and – according to symbols on the card – his reported name has been changed since the first issuance.

Ming Pao reported that Yu and Li are both Canadian passport holders according to Hong Kong Company Registry records.

Yu was also a director of Galaxia Space Management Ltd, which has been unregistered.

No one answered the door as the newspaper’s reporters went to Yu’s address in Tung Chung.

Seven HK residents

It was previously reported that relatives of ten Chinese top political figures have been found to hold offshore companies, according to the Panama Papers. Of the ten, at least seven are either Hong Kong residents, have bought properties in Hong Kong or have business ties to the city.

The Chinese leaders involved were Xi Jinping, Zhang Gaoli, Liu Yunshan, Li Peng, Jia Qinglin, Zeng Qinghong, Tian Jiyun, Hu Yaobang, Mao Zedong and Bo Xilai.

In the latest revelations, Zhang Gaoli’s daughter Cheung Hiu-yin – a name romanised using Cantonese pronunciation – was also found to be a Hong Kong identity card holder. She owns a house at Palm Springs in Yuen Long with her Hong Kong husband Lee Shing-put.

Ming Pao reporters reached out to Cheung at the house but she refused to reveal when he became a Hong Kong resident.

Aside from Jia Qinglin’s granddaughter Jasmine Li, Li’s father Li Pak-tam was also found to be a Hong Kong resident.

According to HK01, the documents showed Li Pak-tam had been living with a woman called Lam Ching Joanna. She has been signing cheques for Li and recently paying annual fees for Li’s offshore companies, which correlated with a rumour that Lam Ching Joanna was a pseudonym for Li’s wife – Jia Qinglin’s daughter Jia Qiang.

It is not illegal for Chinese citizens to open offshore accounts or own offshore companies, but the Communist Party’s constitution bans party officials and family members from profiting from their positions.

The ICIJ’s reports did not give details on how the offshore companies are used, listing only documents and addresses showing ties to the people involved. It noted that there are legitimate uses for offshore companies.

Shiny @HiltonHotels ‏ Hilton Hotel in occupied Tibet @HiltonNewsroom #hiltonhonors #hilton

Economic exploitation of Tibet continues by China. The Hilton Group is considering setting up hotels in two other occupied Tibetan cities, Lhasa and Xigaze.

“We are very confident that Tibet’s tourism industry will continue to grow as transport and other infrastructure improves,” Gao said

Economic Watch: Booming tourism aids Tibet’s green growth

Source: Xinhua| 2017-08-30 16:53:39|Editor: Xiang Bo

LHASA, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) — With the backdrop of the Himalayas and the Yarlung Zangbo River at its front, the Hilton Nyingchi Resort in the city of Nyingchi in Tibet has added a modern touch to the region.

The Hilton is the first international brand resort in Nyingchi and the Hilton Group’s first hotel in Tibet.

The hotel opened in late March this year, taking about three months to prepare for the opening, a record short time for the Hilton Group, according to Larry Gao, general manager of the Hilton Nyingchi Resort.

“We wanted to open it ahead of the annual peach blossom season, which attracts about 600,000 tourists this year,” Gao said.

More and more visitors come to the hotel as Chinese travelers are increasingly affluent, and over 14,000 people have stayed in the hotel since it opened, an impressive performance for a new hotel, Gao said.

In addition to high-end hotels, local people are also benefiting from Tibet’s tourism boom.

Sangshi has earned about 120,000 yuan each year since she opened a guesthouse near Basum Lake in 2013. She used to make just 30,000 yuan a year through her tea shop.

Her village is currently home to 31 guesthouses, raking in a total of over 3 million yuan in accommodation last year.

Basum Lake will soon be rated as a five-A tourist spot, the highest official rating for tourism, becoming the first ecological spot in Tibet to earn the qualification.

Tibet is promoting tourism, which has become a major driver of the region’s growth. It currently contributes to over 30 percent to the region’s total GDP.

“Tourism produces pollution-free GDP and is a pillar sector in line with our green development path,” said Zhang Gengyun, vice mayor of Nyingchi.

Visitors to Tibet grew from 10 million people in 2012 to over 23 million in 2016, growing 21.6 percent year on year. Tourism revenues grew by 27.2 percent each year, exceeding 33 billion yuan in 2016.

“Transport is the major factor checking tourism growth in Tibet. The Nyingchi Mainling Airport is one of the busiest airports in China and it’s not easy to book tickets,” Zhang said.

The rapid growth of travelers to Tibet is bolstered by convenient transport conditions. The total length of highways in Tibet grew from 65,198 kilometers in 2012 to over 82,000 kilometers today. High-grade highways saw their mileage increase six-fold from 2012 to 2016.

Tourism in Tibet is expected to see surging growth once the railway opens linking Sichuan Province’s capital city Chengdu with Lhasa around 2025, Zhang said.

The Hilton Group is considering setting up hotels in two other Tibetan cities, Lhasa and Xigaze, according to Gao.

“We are very confident that Tibet’s tourism industry will continue to grow as transport and other infrastructure improves,” Gao said.

Chinese Police Assault Tibetan Picnickers in Sichuan’s Draggo County

Police Assault Tibetan Picnickers in Sichuan’s Draggo County

2017-08-28
A map showing the location of Draggo county in China's Sichuan province.

Police in southwestern China’s Sichuan province attacked a group of Tibetan villagers without explanation at the weekend, injuring ten and sending several, including an elderly man, to the hospital, Tibetan sources said.

The Aug. 25 assault was launched against a group of Tibetans from Gorum village in Draggo (in Chinese, Luhuo) county’s Tsogo town who were enjoying a picnic “on their own land,” a Tibetan living exile told RFA, citing sources in the region.

“Suddenly, a group of about 30 police officers arrived and surrounded the Tibetans for no apparent reason,” RFA’s source said, speaking on condition he not be named.

“They searched the Tibetans and forced them to stand in a line after putting their belongings on the ground,” he said.

When the Tibetan village head, who was present at the scene, called town and county officials to complain of the harassment, two policemen beat him and took him into custody, and a county official who had led police to the site then ordered his officers to attack the rest of the group, the source said.

In the beating that followed, ten Tibetans were injured, “with one elderly man of about 70 so badly hurt that he had to be rushed to Chengdu city for emergency attention and care,” the source said, adding that others who were injured—including one with a broken rib—were taken to local hospitals.

Explanation demanded

Following the assault, local Tibetans demanded an explanation from county authorities, saying that innocent Tibetans had been attacked for no reason, and that the role of the police should be only to “protect the local community in accordance with the laws of the land,” the source said.

Copies of the appeal were also sent to authorities in Sichuan province and the Kardze (Ganzi) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, he said.

No word of a response from officials was immediately available.

Chinese security forces swarmed Draggo in large numbers three years ago in an apparent attempt to prevent county residents from observing the anniversary of a violent crackdown on Tibetan protesters in January 2012.

Two Tibetans were killed, and at least 30 injured, in the incident in which armed police fired at random into a crowd, sources said in earlier reports.

Shopkeepers in the county were later ordered by authorities to hand over all stocks of photos of exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, with “severe punishment” threatened for those who failed to comply.

Chinese Police Brutally Assaults Tibetan Picnic Group

Chinese police brutally assaults Tibetan picnic group in Gorum village in Draggo, Sichuan province in Tibet. According to the news report from the Radio Free Asia, Chinese police personals suddenly attacked a group of Tibetan villagers on a picnic on August 25, 2017. The source reported that the police officials brually attacked the Tibetans without any explanation.

“Police in southwestern China’s Sichuan province attacked a group of Tibetan villagers without explanation at the weekend, injuring ten and sending several, including an elderly man, to the hospital, Tibetan sources said.” said the report in Radio Free Asia.

“The Aug. 25 assault was launched against a group of Tibetans from Gorum village in Draggo (in Chinese, Luhuo) county’s Tsogo town who were enjoying a picnic “on their own land”. Suddenly, a group of about 30 police officers arrived and surrounded the Tibetans for no apparent reason,” RFA quoted the source as saying.

When the village head tried to contact their county officials to complain of the harassment, two of police personnel beat him and took him into custody. To the worst, the county official that had accompanied the police directed the police to attack the rest of the villagers.

“In the beating that followed, ten Tibetans were injured, “with one elderly man of about 70 so badly hurt that he had to be rushed to Chengdu city for emergency attention and care,” the source said, adding that others who were injured—including one with a broken rib—were taken to local hospitals.” added the report.

The local Tibetans have demanded explanation from the county authorities, authorities in Sichuan province and the Kardze (Ganzi) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, through an appeal to which they did not receive any response.

“Tibet Society has a special place in the hearts of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people. We wish them the very best.” 

We are honoured and humbled by these kind words written by Dr. Lobsang Sangay, the Sikyong, the democratically elected head of the Tibetan people and political successor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Tibet Society was founded shortly after the invasion and is the world’s oldest established Tibet support group. Over those years we have campaigned hard for Tibet, engaging with governments and working internationally, as well as helping many Tibetan individuals both here in the UK and abroad. With your help Tibet Society has ambitious plans to deliver a great deal over the next 12 months, but we need your support.

Tibet Society have managed to ensure the Tibetan people’s demands for human rights and freedom has resonated in Westminster. As Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet we work closely with MPs who have a special interest in Tibet and help devise strategies to keep Tibet on the political agenda. This is the “gateway to government” for all the Tibetan organisations in the UK and it has a genuinely international significance for the Tibetan movement. We are committed to working closely with other organisations both in the UK and internationally for Tibet.

The new APPGT has two committed co-chairs and we will be seeking to bring on board more MPs from the 2017 intake. We are arranging meetings for Tibetans to give testimonies to MPs and Foreign Office officials and we are developing our MP exchange programme which fosters relations between the British and Tibetan exiled parliaments. Such visits not only strengthen support for Tibet in Westminster but also help the exiled government with developing democratic processes.

However, the struggle for freedom in Tibet is now in a crucial phase. Tibetans in Tibet are giving their very lives to protest against China’s continuing repressive policies. China’s crackdown on basic rights and freedoms in Tibet continues unabated. Now, China exercises huge economic global influence and invests in soft power initiatives including the Chinese Embassy arranging visits from the Tibetan Autonomous Region to the UK. We need your support to help us to continue to campaign for Tibet and amplify the authentic voices of real Tibetan people.

All this work, and more, would not be possible without your support. Please help us to continue this vital work, which not only ensures that Tibet remains on the political agenda but ensures that Tibetan voices calling for freedom are heard in the UK and across the world.

Unfortunately, Tibet Society cannot qualify for charitable status because our core aims, such as supporting self-determination for Tibetans, lobbying governments, and protesting about human rights abuses, are classified as political by the Charity Commission. That shuts off many potential sources of income and makes us much more dependant than other Tibet groups on our members and supporters for funding.

Remember Tibet in your will …

Please consider making provision in your will for a bequest to Tibet Society. The need for financial help has never been greater. Tibet has suffered enormously since the annexation of the country by the Chinese government in 1959, when the Dalai Lama was forced to flee across the border into India, where he remains to this day.

Sadly, there seems to be no day in sight when our help and campaigning will not be needed so any legacies for the future are an important part of our income stream.

Please read the material below and then set up a legacy.

May I thank you on behalf of Tibetans everywhere.

Making a bequest in your will to Tibet Society

To be legally valid, a bequest form must be included in the body of your will or as a codicil.  You may wish to use a solicitor to ensure that all the legal formalities are correctly followed. Knowing that your will is valid and expresses your exact wishes will give you peace of mind.

Your bequest can take one of three forms:

  • Residuary legacy: part of your estate remaining after family and friends have been looked after
  • Pecuniary legacy: a lump sum of money
  • Specific items: for example, real estate or shares

If you would like to leave a bequest to Tibet Society, we have provided the words below as a guide, although of course you or your solicitor may want to adapt them to meet your individual circumstances.

For a residuary legacy

“Subject as foresaid I GIVE AND BEQUEATH the whole of my Estate (or x% of the residue of my Estate) whatsoever and wheresoever both real and personal absolutely to Tibet Society of 2 Baltic Place, London, N1V 5AQ. for the General Purposes of Tibet Society and AND I DECLARE the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper Officer for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors”.

For a pecuniary legacy

“I GIVE AND BEQUEATH the sum of £x to Tibet Society of 2 Baltic Place, London, N1V 5AQ for the General Purposes of Tibet Society AND I DECLARE the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper Officer for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors”.

Should you wish to ensure that the sum of money you are leaving now will have the same relative value at the date of your death as it does now, please include the following wording after the above: “The amount of this legacy to Tibet Society shall be regarded as a provisional amount only and the amount payable shall be that provisional amount or if greater that provisional amount index linked to the retail prices index from the date of this Will to the date of my death”.
