New Delhi, August 19 - The Capital of India has become a nest of pro-Tibet sentiments. Under the leadership of Tibetan Youth Congress, Tibetans and supporters have been objecting China's authoritarian regime in Tibet since late July. On the 23rd day of the second phase of Tibetan People's Mass Movement some 300 Tibetans marched from Ram Lila Grounds to Jantar Mantar raising slogans and calling for peace in their homeland. The Movement is said to go on until August 24 with a new form of protest every day of the Games.

TYC President Tsewang Rinzin said, "While China rejoices during the Olympics, thousands of Tibetans suffer inside Tibet. Our motive is to bring the reality and urgency of the crisis to the fore. Our struggle is that of a nation, an entire race that faces the threat of being wiped out. Even if there is only one Tibetan left in the world we will fight for our existence."

Former Vice President of the organization, Karma Yeshi addressed those gathered saying, "It is the responsibility of those in exile who live in a free world to dispute China's unacceptable despotic rule in Tibet. I take this opportunity to say that when the United States can come to the aide of countries like Georgia and Afghanistan against occupation why can't they help six million non violent Tibetans who are under the leadership of a Nobel Peace Prize laureate regain our independence."

Meanwhile, the third group of six men who are on an indefinite fast without food and water entered their fourth day. Thupten Tsewang the youngest of the lot at 19 told Phayul, "I don't feel much, I am numb to sensations of hunger and thirst. I only want to extend my sympathy towards our brethren who are inside Tibet and languishing in Chinese prisons. This is my way of saving my fatherland."

Dhondup Tsering, 63, the oldest hunger striker said he felt fine and could go on for days with ease.
