We are no terrorist group:TYC book
Phayul[Tuesday, January 06, 2009 19:23]
Dharmshala, Jan. 6 – The Tibetan Youth Congress released a book today to counter Chinese allegations that described the largest Tibetan Non Governmental Organization as a terrorist group. At a press conference held for the launch of "RESPONSE: Response to the Allegations of the Communist Party of China", Dhondup Dorjee Shokda, Vice President of the organization said that the book will reveal the series of attempts made by the Chinese government to malign the Tibetan People's peaceful movement and counter the numerous unfounded allegations made by the CPC.

"By seeing the potentials of TYC, China has been preparing for decades to disrupt and sabotage the activities of the organization. At the time of TYC's inception in 1970, China strongly criticized its very foundation and today, China not only condemns its very existence but also its policies and activities. In the coming decades, China will most likely intensify its allegations against TYC", said Dorjee.

Tenzin Yangdon Kura-amje, Public Relation Secretary of TYC said that China has been propagating against Tibetan Youth Congress through their foreign missions and academic circles for decades. “After 10 March 2008, the unprecedented and peaceful movement of the Tibetan people throughout the three traditional provinces of Tibet shattered the Communist Party of China's (CPC) claim that Tibet always was an inalienable part of China and the Tibetan people were happy under China's rule,”Yangdon told reporters.

China has called the TYC a breeding ground for Tibetan separatists taking up violence to alienate Tibet from China. The TYC has responded by saying it is a Tibetan NGO with non-violence and peace as its founding principles, and that it never resorted to violence in its struggle for Tibet.

The organization hopes the book will provide a clearer understanding of the Tibetan Youth Congress and its activities.

Tibetan Youth Congress today has 30,000 members in 84 chapters across 12 countries.
