The International Tibet Independence Movement (ITIM) was co-founded byThubten Jigme Norbu (oldest brother of His Holiness The Dalai Lama) and LarryGerstein (Professor-Psychology) on March 18, 1995 in order to secure Tibet'sIndependence through non-violent methods. The basic premise of ITIM is that"Only Independence for Tibet can ensure the survival of the Tibetan land andit's people, culture, and religion." The goals of ITIM are as follows: 1)Articulate a concrete vision of Tibet as an Independent Nation; 2) Promotethe use of documentation that advocates using Independence as the primaryfocal point for activities relating to the Tibetan cause world-wide; 3)Demand that the voice of Tibetans for Independence be heard by government andnon-governmental agencies world-wide; 4. Encourage the collective,coordinated participation of all Tibetans and their supporters to develop andimplement strategies for economic, legal, and political action.
