Since 1996, TID has annually called on cities, municipalities and counties in Germany to raise the Tibetan flag on their town halls and public buildings on March 10th, the anniversary of the Tibetan national uprising of 1959.
By raising the Tibetan Flag, the participating German cities -backed by thousands of German citizens - affirm the Tibetan people's right to self-determination.
They protest against the violations of human rights and the destruction of Tibetan culture, religion and national identity and call on the German government to clearly speak out against China's Tibet policy.
The campaign is also a strong symbol of support for Tibetans living in Tibet, assuring them of our strong and continuous support.
