Description

Since the Chinese invasions of Tibet in 1950, more than one million people have died for their role in demonstrations against the occupation. Tibetan Buddhist nuns have continued this resistance by staging demonstrations for religious freedom and independence. They have been imprisoned and tortured as a result. This video focuses on the testimonies of these nuns and looks to understand the basis for their non-violent actions in their struggle against oppressive Chinese policies.
