Tibetan Youth Congress Women Members storm Chinese Embassy
Phayul[Wednesday, March 12, 2008 16:22]
New Delhi, March 12 - A group of 36 women members representing six regional chapters of Tibetan Youth Congress from Northern India including Dharamshala, Poanta, Herbertput, Tsering Dhondenling, Rajpur and Manali took part in a demonstration led by Mrs. Tenzing Yangzom, Organization Secretary of TYC. The women stormed the Chinese Embassy at Chanakayapuri, New Delhi to commemorate the 49th National Women’s Uprising Day of Tibet. With faces painted with the Tibetan National Flag they shouted anti- china slogans and sprayed the Embassy walls with ‘Free Tibet’ and other slogans in red paint.

The demonstrators were collared by the Indian Police, dragged and pushed out from the Embassy compound after 40 minutes of continued protest. A large number of police were already present in the Embassy and they were prepared to stop the demonstration.
Even then, amidst high security the women activists were able to protest for a long time and put their demands forward.
  1. Independence for Tibet.
  2. No Olympics in China until Tibet is Free.
  3. Stop forced sterilization of Tibetan women and one child policy.
  4. Stop Human Rights violations in Tibet.
  5. Immediate release of Tibetan who were arrested in recent National Uprising day in Lhasa.
The oldest protester, a 60 year old from Tsering Dhondenling said that the suffering of Tibetan women inside Tibet is unbelievable.
The women are tortured both physically and mentally and the implementation of one child policy by the Chinese government is a sign of genocide. The youngest protester, a 16 year old nun from Dolmaling Monastery in Dharamsala said, “I am not much aware of the Tibetan situation inside Tibet but know that China always try to belittle Tibetan women and destroy our religion which cannot be tolerated anymore.”

All 36 women protestors are detained at Chanakyapuri police station. The demonstrators have decided to go on hunger strike in the police station to continue their protest and they have decided not to come out on bail until and unless
they are released without charges because they believe that protesting for a free country is not a crime.

On the historic day of 12 March 1959, thousands of Tibetan women led by Kunsang gathered in Lhasa and displayed their gallant patriotism by putting their life on the line amidst the occupying forces to protest against China’s occupation of Tibet where Tibetan women chanted slogans of “Independence for Tibet” and thousand were crushed to death.
