New Delhi, July 22 - RTYC Samyeling in their effort to regain Tibetan freedom has decided to give a new face to the struggle- through political games. Members organized a day long protest dedicated to sports and games at Jantar Mantar today. The novel method saw a collection of entertainment attractions ranging from bowling, dart games, football and other ball throw games. All the gaming equipments carried pictures of Hu Jintao's face on them. Effigies of the Chinese President were also burnt to the ground.

Tibetans from local settlements of Majnu Ka Tilla and Budh Vihar who have been on a 24 hour relay hunger strike since March 14 offered prayers and lit butter lamps after which they protested against the unacceptability of Chinese brutality and torture inside Tibet.

According to RTYC, "Just like the authoritarian regime of China plays its wicked game with many of its ethnic minorities, especially with Tibetans, we are on this day playing games which are a display of our pent up frustration with the situation in Tibet as well as with the apathy shown to us by the IOC and the UN."

Against China's allegations of it being a terrorist and separatist organization, the Tibetan Youth Congress has always maintained that it is based on non-violent principles with Gandhi's tradition of Satyagraha.

Regional members are of the opinion that though some of their actions may give them a confrontational image, these are in fact just 'symbols' of the 'direct action' that they demand from people and other political bodies.

RTYC Samyeling had on Sunday organized a cycle rally through the City in which some 65 members and supporters rode from Jantar Mantar to Majnu Ka Tilla.

Staff members of Tibetan Governmental and Non-Governmental offices also took part in a day long sit in demonstration at Jantar Mantar on Sunday as a form of peaceful protest to keep their cause alive.
