Free Tibetan Filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen
Tibetan filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen is serving a six-year prison sentence in China for "subversion of state power" -- simply because he dared to speak out about Tibetan human rights through his filmmaking. Demand his release now!

Please call on the Chinese authorities to release Dhondup Wangchen immediately and unconditionally.
