Exiled Tibetans demand freedom from China
ANI[Wednesday, August 10, 2005 22:14]
Bhopal, August 9 - Hundreds of exiled Tibetans in India took to streets today demanding China to quit the Tibet.

The protest by the Council for Tibet Freedom marks the anniversary of Quit India movement against the British colonial rulers.

The activist say their agitation is symbolic of the historic movement and they hope it culminates in justice for Tibet.

" On this day Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi started the uprising in India against the British Government. Today under the banner of Council for Tibet Freedom we have also started this quit Tibet movement. As part of this movement we will take out processions against China all round the year. China has forcefully occupied Tibet and is ill-treating the people of Tibet. Such small and large scale processions are being organised in the whole country from Delhi to the Chinese embassy," said Dr. Mahesh Yadav, President Council for Tibet Freedom.

Yadav added, "As per the traditions this protest too is for supporting our holiness the Dalai Lama, who has always followed Mahatma Gandhi's footsteps of non-violence and also to support the innocent people of Tibet. Through our movement we want to divert China's attention that they should quit Tibet and do away with the ill treatment on the people of Tibet. we also want to request all the countries not to keep any sort of business or cultural relations with China because of what China is doing in Tibet."

International pressure has increased on China in recent years forcing it to hold a fresh dialogue between envoys of Dalai Lama.

Beijing resumed dialogue on the future of the region with representatives of the Tibetan spiritual leader in 2002 after it was suspended in 1993.

The talks have been shrouded in secrecy and the July meeting at the Chinese embassy in Berne, Switzerland, was also not announced in advance.
