Dharamshala November 3 - What is Bombardier? asked Kusho(monk) Ngawang la as a group of Tibetan youths supported by Indian and foreign tourists did a mock railway running over two Tibetans sitting on the ground here in Dharamshala.

"This is a new and creative way of presenting our message of displeasure with Canadian company Bombardier who is working in cooperation with China railway in constructing railways into Tibet." said Choeying the president of Students for a free Tibet India chapter.

Today, November 3rd 2005, all over the world Tibetans and Tibet supporters are doing this campaign in as an international network. Ten volunteers stood in a line with stern face carrying a shield saying "Golmud-Lhasa Express" and as they ran around the busy street in McLecod Ganj, the Indian tourist joined them making the train long, and as the train passed over the two Tibetans sitting on the road, many people hesitated to walk over.

Mathew a tourist who comes from Toronto not only watched the youngsters staging protest, but joined them and actively participated in the team, he says "Bombardier for their business interest in tarnishing the image of my country Canada."

The team went around the Mcleod Ganj street and also went down the hill to Kotwali bazaar, where the Indian festive mood for Diwali saw another spectacle of protest against China's railway in Tibet.

As the volunteers sat down for working for special evening protest plans, the long banner saying "Bombardier Out of Tibet" is seen hanging from a huge cluster of balloons.
