Voluntary Tibet Advocacy Group (V-TAG)

The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) led by Sikyong Penpa Tsering considers Tibet advocacy as one of the main priorities in restoring freedom for Tibet. While the CTA continues its efforts to bring the Tibetan cause at the forefront internationally, the 16th Kashag has undertaken a new initiative, Voluntary Tibet Advocacy Group (V-TAG) to provide every Tibetan the opportunity to optimize their potentials in contributing to the non-violent, mutually beneficial, negotiated, and lasting solution to the Sino-Tibetan conflict. V-TAGs are voluntary associations of Tibetans formed to carry out advocacy campaigns in their respective countries. The main goal of establishing V-TAGs is to reinforce the existing advocacy campaigns across the world by providing a platform for every Tibetan to contribute in their own ways for the larger cause of Tibet.

The Tibetan community in the diaspora is undergoing significant social and demographic changes. As of today, Tibetans are spread over many [countries around the world, having established Tibetan organizations in at least 20 countries]. Despite the challenges posed by such changes, as citizens of the country and having a good understanding of local languages and system of governance, provide a unique opportunity for them to actively engage in garnering international support for Tibet.

At present, China’s relation with the international community and its handling of issues pertaining to Tibet, East Turkestan, Hong Kong, Southern Mongolia and Taiwan are becoming increasingly critical. Tibet in particular is facing an existential threat of identity, cultural and religious assimilation, economic marginalization, and environmental degradation from the Chinese Communist regime. Therefore, Tibetans need to strengthen advocacy for Tibet with the maximum participation of Tibetans spearheaded mainly by the younger generation. Through this effort, we can amplify our international outreach garnering the attention and support for Tibet that it deserves.

CTA expects V-TAGs to act as one of the main vehicles of the Tibetan movement, that will work in close coordination with Parliamentary Friends of Tibet, Tibet Support Groups, Tibetan Associations, and other stakeholders resulting in more concrete support for the Tibetan movement from across the world until the aspirations of Tibetans are fulfilled and freedom is restored in Tibet.
