February 13, 2013, marked exactly 100 years since the 13th Dalai Lama of Tibet proclaimed the restoration of its independence. 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.
Over the last three years, Tibetan Independence Day (February 13th) has been celebrated in over 30 cities worldwide. Since 2013, Tibetans and supporters have commemorated Tibetan Independence Day by organizing educational events, flag raising ceremonies, exhibitions, protest actions at Chinese embassies and other creative actions to put a spotlight on Tibet's independent past and ongoing repression in Tibet. We believe in the significance of emphasizing Tibet's independent past as a building block towards our work for a future free and democratic Tibet — one that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and Tibetans around the globe can reunite in.
