A short history of Støttekomiteen For Tibet

The Tibet Support Committee (SKT) is a Danish organisation committed to improving conditions for the Tibetan people by supporting their nonviolent struggle for freedom, human rights, democracy and self-determination. The association was first established on the 6th of March 1989 and has ever since conducted a variety of activities and events.
 
SKT's existence is based on a conviction that political support is the best kind of help we can give a people whose problems stem from a political cause, namely China's annexation of Tibet and those violations of Tibetans' rights that the occupation has resulted in.
 
Our lobbying and the information we disseminate have meant that most Danes now have an idea of what's happening in Tibet. Violations of Tibetans’ rights have been a recurring topic in the media as well as in the political debate. There has been a focus on Tibet.  We have made a difference.
 
The global attention to Tibet's problems have kept hope alive for many Tibetans. In several cases, the pressure on China resulted in releases of political prisoners, judicial reform, efforts against environmental degradation, initiating development projects etc.
 
But there is a long way to go. The interests of the global community in the Chinese market and the attempt to integrate China into the international security system has weakened the adherence to outspoken principles and thus effectively reduced pressure on the Chinese government. The Danish and international support for the Tibetan cause are half-hearted and therefore less effective. This makes popular pressure on the Danish government very important - through this we can all help to make a difference.

  • Åbent brev til regeringen om Hong Kong

    Åbent brev til den danske regering

    Kære udenrigsminister Jeppe Kofod

    Den nye sikkerhedsbeslutning, som blev fremlagt i Kinas Folkekongres den 22. maj (1) og vedtaget i dag, er den alvorligste trussel mod Hong Kongs selvstyre, demokrati og menneskerettigheder, som vi hidtil har været vidne til. Enhver med kendskab til Tibet og Østturkestan ved, hvordan det kinesiske styre udnytter love om "national sikkerhed" som et påskud for målrettede indgreb mod kritik af regeringen, initiativer for at styrke etniske identiteter eller sågar ønsker om at måtte benytte sit eget sprog i undervisningen, j.fr. Tashi Wangchuk-sagen (2).

    Tibetans, Uighurs, Hong Kong'ers, Taiwanese and Chinese demonstrate at China's Embassy

    https://www.facebook.com/events/176169740467748/

    For the first time in Denmark the Chinese Embassy faces collective resistance from some of the peoples that are most directly suppressed or threatened by China. On Tuesday 10 March at 4.30 pm we protest against China's ruthless behaviour but also to show that we could all live in harmony with China if only the Chinese leaders would let everyone live as they chose.

    Ms Zumretay Arkin from World Uyghur Congress in Munich visits Denmark to tell about re-education camps and total surveillance. There will be speeches by the Hong Kong activist Mr Andrew Chan, chairman of Taiwan Corner, Mr Michael Danielsen and exile Chinese Ms Marion Chen from Our Future House. We will also read the statement by Tibet's exile President, Mr Lobsang Sangay. Danish politics are represented by Mr Christian Jul (Red-Green Alliance), Mr Thomas Rohden from Danish China-Critical Society and Mr Anders Storgaard, Conservative Youth.
