Beijing Protest against China's Tibet Railway - Detained Activists Released
SFT/FTC[Saturday, July 01, 2006 10:08]
Hong Kong, June 30 : Three women detained earlier today by Chinese police for protesting against the launch of China's Tibet Railway, were released and arrived safely in Hong Kong two hours ago.

Katie Mallin, Omi Hodwitz and Kathy Ni Keefe scaled the facade of Beijing's Central Railway Station and held up a banner that read "China's Tibet Railway: Designed to Destroy." Their protest kicked off an international day of protest against the railway, which is scheduled to make its first official trip from Beijing to Lhasa starting July 1st.

Upon arriving in Hong Kong, Kathy Ni Keefe of Students for a Free Tibet said: “Our actions today mark our solidarity with Tibetans inside Tibet, who have attempted to sound an alarm over China's Tibet Railway, but are unable to make even the mildest criticisms of China’s destructive policies without facing severe repercussions.”

The three activists are available for interview and can be reached on +852 61454902 and +852 614 77073
