Tibetans in Delhi came together at Jantar Mantar and other places to protest against the Chinese..
Around 400 Tibetans in the capital had gathered at Jantar Mantar
, where they staged a peaceful protest. Yangphel, says, “We were protesting against the Chinese delegation that have come over to Delhi for talks”. Yangphel is not happy as these delegates would not be bringing the Tibetan issues on the forefront during the talks. Majority of these Tibetans who had come for the protest are residents of Majnu ka Tilla, Delhi.
Though the protest at Jantar Mantar has already finished, there are some sort of protests at ITC Maurya hotel in Delhi, where the Chinese delegates are residing. Another protest is also going to take place at Hyderabad house, later today around 3: 30 pm. The protest that took place today went off in a very peaceful manner, as Yangphel said, “We follow non-violence”.
Yangphel still hopes that the Government of India
and China recognise Tibet as an independent nation. It is a dream for Tibetans like Yangphel around the world, who longs to be freed from Chinese domination. Tibetans around the world
consider the Tibetan issue very close to their heart. They have a strong history of protests, especially the massive protest ahead of the Olympic Games
2008, where protestors tried to disrupt Olympic torch relay all around the world.
