Primary school students stage protest in Kham Driru
Phayul[Wednesday, March 24, 2010 18:14]
By Phurbu Thinley

Dharamsala, March 24: More than 20 students from a primary school in Kham Driru held bold protests against Chinese rule earlier this week, an exile Tibetan having contacts in the region told Phayul.

Driru (Ch: Biru), traditionally a district in the Kham Province of Tibet, is currently a county in Nagchu (Ch: Nagqu) Prefecture of the so-called ‘Tibet Autonomous Region’ (TAR).

"A peaceful protest was held by a group of students in a Primary School in Driru district in Tibet against the Chinese government on March 22," Ngawang Tharpa, a Tibetan from Nagchu now living in exile here, said.

Thapa said slogans like “Long live His Holiness the Dalai Lama’’, “Free Tibet”, “China out of Tibet” and “Let His Holiness the Dalai Lama come back to Tibet” were raised by the students during the protest.

The protesters were later surrounded by Chinese security forces and their parents were held for interrogation, Tharpa said, citing sources.

The sources, however, could not confirm further details regarding the protest and, the situation of the students and the school due to heavy restriction placed by the Chinese authorities after the protest, Tharpa said.

It is also not clear if anyone has been arrested during the protest.

“We don’t know whether the students are arrested or whether they are held in detention center,” sources told Tharpa.
