New Delhi, August 3 - The six freedom fighters who have been on an indefinite fast without food and water for a week now are fast approaching life threatening ordeals. Their refusal to throw in the towel for what they believe is a higher argument far outshines their individual suffering.

Their will strengthens by the day so much so that a weak Sonam Dakpa implored the visiting Japanese Parliamentarian Jin Matsubara of their sacrifice not being fruitless. He said, "We are ready to die for the six million Tibetans, this should not be futile. I hope you bring up our cause in your Parliament and garner support from other Japanese leaders."

Jin Matsubara who arrived with his entourage told the media, "Olympics is not just a game, it is a place and time for the world to come together in peace and harmony. The host country should uphold peace, democracy and human rights in order to truly deserve the title of the host of the Olympics."

The venue of the hunger strike is now watched like a fortress by Indian authorities. Intervention is not far as the six men hover precariously close towards grim conditions. Frequent visits are made by men in plain clothes with Indian doctors carrying out physical check ups.
