The Tibet Information Office in Canberra announces the upcoming visit of Kalon (Minister) Norzin Dolma, Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR), Central Tibetan Administration, to Australia between 14-18 November.

This is Ms Dolma’s first visit to Australia since assuming the role of Kalon (Minister) in 2021.

During her week-long visit to Australia and New Zealand from 14-21 November, Kalon Norzin Dolma will draw attention to the priorities and concerns currently facing the Tibetan people. 

“This is an important opportunity to hear first-hand what is happening in Tibet,” said Karma Singey, Representative of Tibet Information Office based in Canberra.

“Tibet’s national identity is facing an existential threat under China’s repressive policies and security apparatus. 

The Tibetan people are being systematically subjected to cultural assimilation, political repression, economic marginalisation and ecological destruction,” the Representative added.

Up to one million Tibetan children have been separated from their families and forced into a vast network of Chinese colonial boarding schools, which UN rights experts have warned is an effort to assimilate Tibetans into the majority Han Chinese culture.

On 16 November, Kalon Norzin Dolma will address key issues in a ‘Tibet Briefing’ hosted by the Australian All Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet at Parliament House, Canberra. 

As chief guest of the Voluntary Tibet Advocacy Group’s (V-TAG) Tibet Advocacy Strategy Meeting on 17 November, Kalon Norzin Dolma will deliver a keynote address at the National Press Club, before travelling to Wellington to address the Asia Pacific Security Innovation Forum Annual Summit. 

Kalon will advocate the exile Tibetan administration’s policy of the Middle Way Approach to resolve the long-standing Sino-Tibet conflict, a policy initiated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and adopted by the Central Tibetan Administration.

The Middle Way Approach aims to achieve genuine and meaningful autonomy for the Tibetan people under the framework of the People’s Republic of China. 

The visit is jointly organised by the Tibet Information Office in Canberra (also called the Office of Tibet) and the Australia Tibet Council

STATEMENT ON INVESTIGATION BY THE NINE NEWSPAPERS: HIZB UT-TAHRIR MUST BE URGENTLY BANNED

According to this investigation,Hizb ut-Tahrir – banned in Germany, and proscribed as a terrorist organisation in the United Kingdom – has led national boycotts of Jewish-owned businesses and incited violent protests in Caulfield that required a synagogue to be evacuated; they have infiltrated Australia’s leading university, are glorifying terrorism and distributing extremist material, and are covertly using front organisations to mainstream their extremism with a combined 33,000 followers. We should not have any doubt as to what Hizb ut-Tahrir’s key players and supporters mean when they refer to 7 October as a “day of courage,” or when they share videos…
