Tibetan exiles protest in Delhi

August 1, 2008

July 30, 2008

Tibetan exiles living in India staged a demonstration here today
outside the office of United Nations against Chinese occupation of
their homeland.

They shouted slogans against the Chinese government and submitted a
memorandum asking the United Nations to intervene and help in
fulfilling the demands of six Tibetans sitting on hunger strike at
Jantar Mantar in New Delhi for their cause.

"We appeal to United Nations to support the Tibetan cause and fulfill
the demands of six Tibetans who are sitting on hunger strike," said
Tenzing Zorsang, a protestor.

The demonstrators also blamed China for violating Human Rights.

"These Olympics, which are being held in China, the whole country
should unite and oppose it. Because Olympics are symbol for peace and
brotherhood and China is a country, where human rights are always
violated," said Dakpa Yeshi, another Tibetan protestor.

The Tibetans also plan to launch a mass movement based on the
principles of Mahatma Gandhi's non-violent struggle under the aegis
of Tibetan Youth Congress from August 7.

The Beijing Olympics begins on August 8.

Exiled Tibetans have been holding rallies and demonstrations to
protest against Chinese policies in Tibet across the world.

China resumed fence-mending talks with envoys of Tibet's exiled
spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, on July 1 in a move that could
burnish its international image weeks before the Chinese capital
hosts the Olympics.

It is the second closed-door meeting between the representatives of
the Dalai Lama and the Chinese Government since rioting erupted in
Tibet in March and heaped international pressure on China to deal
with the Nobel laureate. (ANI)
