Dharamsala, May 13: Tibetan exiles around the world will make financial contribution to build a memorial stone pillar to pay tribute to Tibetan victims of China’s repression.

The memorial pillar would be built in “memory and honour of those Tibetans who showed spirit of sincerity, indomitable courage by sacrificing their lives for the cause of Tibet under China's repression,” a statement on the official website of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile said.

The statement said the decision was an outcome of a unanimous resolution passed by the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile during its seventh session held in March this year. It said the resolution was passed to “honour those who have sacrificed everything, including their lives in Tibet.”

Tibetans exiles from all over the world are to make financial contribution for the memorial, the location for which is yet to be decided.

The statement said the memorial would be erected with the monetary contribution of Rs 3/- from every Tibetans residing in India, Nepal and Bhutan, and US$1from those living in other countries.

The Tibetan Parliament is to choose an appropriate location for the memorial later on.
