During the Global Week of Action, which commenced a week ago, various organizations from around the world came together to advocate for a common cause. On February 3, 2023, the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC), along with the Tibetan Women’s Association, National Democratic Party of Tibet, and Students for a Free Tibet, India, joined forces with 120 organizations worldwide in a united Global Week of Action.

The primary demand during this week of action was for the Chinese government to cease its forced collection of DNA from Tibetans. This practice raises concerns about privacy violations, human rights abuses, and the potential misuse of genetic information. By participating in the Global Week of Action, the TYC and other organizations aimed to raise awareness about this issue and apply collective pressure on the Chinese government to halt these actions.


The collaboration of these organizations underscores the solidarity and shared commitment among various global entities to protect the rights and dignity of Tibetans. The joint efforts during the Global Week of Action amplify the voices calling for an end to the forced DNA collection and bring attention to the human rights concerns faced by Tibetans under Chinese rule.
