TYC activists detained for storming Chinese embassy on Tibetan National Uprising Day
DHARAMSALA, 10 March: Over 70 activists from the Tibetan Youth Congress(TYC), were detained by Delhi police for protesting at the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi on the 64th Tibetan National Uprising Day in New Delhi.
The activists from the largest Tibetan NGO in exile stormed the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi before they were detained by the police as they commemorated the 64th anniversary of the Tibetan uprising day.
“More than 70 Tibetan Youth stormed the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi to commemorate the 64th Tibetan National Uprising Day,” TYC has said.
The activists from TYC were heard shouting slogans such as “Free Tibet,” and “China stop the killing in Tibet” among others before there were detained by the police and held at Mandir Marg police station in the Indian capital
Expressing serious concern about the current critical situation in Tibet, TYC has said in a statement it issued that “since Tibet was gobbled up by the Chinese Communist Regime and under its oppressive political systems. Tibet has been experiencing tremendous challenges: expropriation of Tibetan religious centres, detention of Tibetan intellectuals, the massacring of prominent Tibetan scholars; and exploitation of the Tibetan environmental ecosystems.”
The statement further read that it is “high time that Tibetans across the globe should take steps forward to let international communities hear the genuine desires of Tibetans and the ground situations inside Tibet.”
Speaking about the “White Paper Revolution” in China in 2022 against the dictatorship system of the Chinese Communist Regime, TYC added: “This is an opportune moment that we Tibetans also should be more committed to our struggle than ever before and stand united with Tibetan brothers and sisters inside Tibet.”
