Why isn’t the annexation of Tibet given much attention?

Ever since the annexation of Tibet by China in 1951, Tibet has been ruled under the CCP. As a consequence, Tibetans have no right to self determination, because there are no referendums. So, I ask why doesn’t the world properly advocate for Tibetan independence?

Because it happened so long ago, and the world has many other more pressing issues to concern itself with.

China is much too powerful.

Happened ages ago, and frankly, most people cant locate Tibet on a map so no one really cares.
