SFT to launch 24 hour online TV channel
Phayul[Saturday, August 02, 2008 11:25]
The Students for a Free Tibet(SFT) has announced that it will launch Free Tibet 2008 Television (FT08.TV), a 24 hour online television channel broadcasting on the internet to go live from August 8 through the end of the Games on August 24. FT08.TV will be co-produced from several different cities, with a central production hub in London.

"FT08.TV will be actively inviting video submissions from Students for a Free Tibet's grassroots membership and others interested in these topics, and we're also working to create a platform for discussion, comments, and feedback so that in essence this channel will be a counterpoint to the lack of media openness we're seeing in Beijing as the Games approach, and of course in Tibet," said Han Shan, Olympics Campaign Coordinator during a press briefing late last month.

FT08.TV aims to broadcast breaking reports about Olympics, Tibet related protests, pro-Tibet efforts in Beijing, newsmaker interviews, pofiles of Tibet activists, Skype/chat/call-in talk shows, video press releases and in house statements. SFT also hopes to provide an interesting and entertaining look at the Tibetan community and the Free Tibet movement apart from showcasing mini-documentaries about a number of Tibet and Olympics-related issues.

"As a global network, SFT will be coordinating and participating in efforts worldwide. This network will have a hub in Asia on the same time as Beijing, as well as hubs in London, New York, Toronto, and San Francisco. In addition, we'll have grassroots leaders and people available for press comment in Delhi and Dharamsala and other cities in India, in cities throughout Europe, and in cities throughout North America." he further added.

"At this moment Tibet is locked down by the Chinese military and it is extremely difficult to get information about the situation on the ground. All internet communications and phone calls are strictly monitored and the passing of information about protests or the ensuing crackdown to outside sources and journalists is being treated almost as harshly as participating in a protest itself." reiterated Executive Director Lhadon Tethong pressing the urgent need for global support and people of conscience to keep the struggle for freedom alive.
