Demonstrations in Kardze County
TCHRD[Saturday, July 05, 2008 17:33]

A group of local Tibetans were severely beaten and then detained by the Chinese security forces for staging peaceful demonstrations in Kardze County, Kardze "Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture" ("TAP"), Sichuan, according to confirmed information received by the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD)

On 21 June 2008, a Tibetan youth named Dragu of Khashul Village, Dado Township, Kardze County, Kardze "TAP", was detained by the People's Armed Police (PAP) as he had entered into the main market of the County calling for a free Tibet until his protest was overtaken by 7 local PAP officers. He was seen sporting a white band tied around his head with the words "Bod Rangzen" (Free Tibet) written on it and with Tibetan flags painted on both of his cheeks.

On 22 June 2008, around 11:00 AM (Beijing Standard Time) 24-year-old monk Tsering Phuntsok and 36- year-old monk Tashi Sherab both of Khangmar Monastery in Kardze County, Sichuan, staged a peaceful demonstration in the County.

In the afternoon around 1:00 PM of the same day, a 37 year-old monk named Sergha and 27 year-old monk, Yeshi Dargye, also of Khangmar Monastery further staged protest by distributing pamphlets and calling for a free Tibet, and praying for the long life of the Dalai Lama and the return of the Dalai Lama to Tibet.

On the same day around 2 - 3 PM local time, another demonstration consisting of more than 10 local Tibetans erupted in the same County which was led by an unidentified layman of Shillidha Village.

All the peaceful protesters whilst being brutally beaten were arrested by the Chinese armed forces.
