Welcome to SFT Canada's new blog site!

Students for a Free Tibet Canada
is a student and youth based organization that works in solidarity with the Tibetan people in their struggle for freedom and independence.

This is our official mission statement, but how we transform this into concrete action relys a lot on YOU! - individual SFT members. Our members have pulled off some amazing actions for Tibet and our role as an organized body (yesterday we received our official incorporation documents from the Canada government - whoopeee!) is to provide the tools to train, educate, and inspire more of these actions. At the root of it, our organization is also about having fun - because what's the point in being involved in something if it's not fun. The above photo shows SFT Canada members and board members, SFT staff and friends doing just that at this year's SFT Canada conference held in May in Vancouver.

One suggestion at the conference was to use the wonderful world of internet technology to better communicate with each other across this vast country - hence the birth of the SFT Canada blog! Also check out our new (and still in it's early stage) SFT Canada website!
