New Delhi, July 30 - The Tibetan Solidarity Committee, a Joint Committee of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile and the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) held a press briefing at the Press Club of India, New Delhi today. Karma Chophel, Chairman of the Tibetan Solidarity Committee chaired the conference with Minister of the Department of Information and International Relations, CTA, Kesang Takla and Deputy Speaker Gyari Dolma acting as speakers.

Karma Chophel in his statement said that the Chinese government had put forth a set of demands known as the four 'not to support' for the Dalai Lama to fulfill namely, 1) not to support activities to disturb the Beijing Olympic Games to be held in Beijing, 2) not to support plots to fan violent criminal activities, 3) not to support but actively curb violent terrorist activities of the Tibetan Youth Congress, and 4) not to support any activities to seek independence for Tibet or its separation from China.

He further mentioned that the Tibetan Solidarity Committee was in favor of meaningful movements for Tibetan rights and not a single campaign was being carried out by them to harm or disrupt the Olympic Games. He reiterated CTA's stand that His Holiness and the Tibetan Parliament stood in favor of the Beijing Olympics and supported it wholeheartedly.

Talking about organizations that shared a different view objecting to the Beijing Olympics Kalon Takla said, " Tibetans function with a democratic charter in India and though groups like the Tibetan Youth Congress push for independence; a stand different from the Central Tibetan Administration, we also recognize the fact that they do so non-violently and through peaceful means. These organizations are free to do as they will provided they adhere to the laws of the land and put their point across through non-violence."

China's internal party documents had earlier revealed propagandist strategy of tightening its grip over Tibet. Zhang Qingli, Party Secretary of Communist China to Tibet is disclosed to have spoken about cleaning out monasteries and strengthening administrative committees which will allow them absolute control over Tibetans.

"Propaganda and education are our party's greatest advantages. These are the most useful weapons with which to defend ourselves against the Dalai Lama group. So let the propaganda department work more actively to expose its plots," he is quoted to have said.

"We fear that the worst is yet to come and it will be after the Olympics", said an emotional Deputy Speaker Dolma Gyari.
