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.

  • Pressemeddelelse: Politiet erkender fejl i Tibetsagen - men mange problemer udestår

    Københavns Politi indrømmede i går for første gang helt uforbeholdent, at de havde "begået alvorlige fejl" ved at gribe ind mod demonstranter under de kinesiske besøg i 2012 og 2013 samt i det efterfølgende forløb, og at de derved havde handlet "i strid med deres grundlovs- og konventionssikrede ret til at ytre og forsamle sig". Derfor indstillede de gennem Kammeradvokaten til Københavns Byret, at de otte personer, der siden juni 2015 havde stævnet politiet for nogle af disse indgreb, hver bør tilkendes en erstatning på 20.000 kr.

  • Opfordring til justitsministeren

    Kære justitsminister Søren Pape Poulsen

    I forbindelse med, at Tibetkommissionen nu har afgivet beretning, vil Støttekomiteen for Tibet gerne bidrage til, at dens værdifulde arbejde kommer til at skabe varig forandring. Denne henvendelse, der også er sendt til Folketingets Retsudvalg, drejer sig dog ikke om kommissionens konklusioner, men om det, som den ikke har udtalt sig om.
