The Campaign for a Better Tibetan Map
The Tibetan Youth Association in Europe has started a campaign to try and persuade Google to use the traditional place-names of Tibetan towns and landmarks rather than the names imposed by China.
The Put Tibet Back on the Map campaign is accompanied by a Google Map. Starting from February 13th 2013, exactly 100 years after Tibet’s declaration of independence, the association are collecting all the information about Tibetan landmarks on this map.
The association are calling for all those who support their campaign to share the map and to tweet #tibetonthemap.
