Every individual has the right to be free. But for the Tibetan people, even their basic rights have been stripped away by an oppressive Chinese government. Students for a Free Tibet (SFT, studentsforafreetibet.org) work with the Tibetan people in their struggle for freedom and independence, giving them a voice when they otherwise would be silenced. Through education, grassroots organizing, and non-violent direct action, SFT’s goal is to provide all Tibetans their fundamental right to political freedom. I have depicted a land that’s attempting to rise up –despite its struggles -- in a peaceful and honorable way. The Tibetan characters in the print stand for independence (Rangzen).
