New Delhi, August 8 - Some 120 monks from the Tibetan Youth Congress protested outside the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi at 17:30 (local time). The mass civil disobedience is a part of the organization's Tibetan People's Mass Movement aimed at China's wrongful occupancy of Tibet and the Beijing Olympics which the TYC says is not deserving of China.

Monks in marooned colored robes raised slogans beseeching the Indian government to heed to their plight and calling for a free Tibet. They were soon overpowered by Indian officials where some were dragged and others carried to waiting police vehicles. Cries of desperation filled the air and emotions ran high in the chaos which lasted for some fifteen to twenty minutes.

The protest site wore a grim look after the young activists were towed away. A distorted image of the reality in Tibet appeared large with remnants of the protestors' clothes that had come apart during the scuffle and the Tibetan National Flag in tatters on the street.

Vice President Dhondup Dorjee said they were protesting against the brutal occupation of Tibet by China and the hosting of the most prestigious sporting event worldwide in a country which lacks human spirit and looks down upon democracy and fundamental rights.

TYC is also very clear on their stand of the People's Movement being based solely on the Gandhian principle of non violence and Satyagraha. They insist their activities and direct action campaigns are through peaceful means of attaining their freedom, a far cry from China's accusations of the TYC being a terrorist group.
