Edinburgh campaigners plan Tibet protests: Report
Phayul[Wednesday, February 04, 2009 12:17]

Dharamsala, Feb. 04: Protests, debates and cultural events are being planned by campaigners from all over Scotland next month in capital Edinburgh to mark the 50th anniversary of the Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule, according to a Scottish media report.

Activists from all over Scotland met at the Scottish Parliament at the weekend along with the European representative of Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, to discuss the plans, news.scotsman.com reported Tuesday.

"The events planned in Scotland will remember 50 years of Tibetan resistance and to call for an end to their continued suffering,” the report quoted Edinburgh South Liberal Democrat MSP Mike Pringle as saying.

“After Tibetan protests in March last year China's response was severe. Over a hundred Tibetans were killed and thousands were detained," Pringle added.

Jamie Robertson, 24, Edinburgh member of Students for a Free Tibet, said: "This year's Tibetan Uprising Day will mark 50 years of resistance since March 10, 1959, when thousands of Tibetans took to the streets of the capital Lhasa to protest the invasion of their country by China."

Tsering Tashi, representative of the Dalai Lama, said he hoped in its dealings with the Chinese authorities the Scottish Government would give "due priority" to human rights.

In 2005, Scotland hosted the Fourth World Parliamentarian's Convention on Tibet convened in Edinburgh.
