TWA delegation meets Sichuan Governor, urges end to Ngaba crackdown

Dharamsala, April 28: A delegation of the second largest non governmental organization of the Tibetan Diaspora Tuesday met with the visiting Chinese governor of the province where 3 people have died since March 16, and hundreds have been detained or gone missing.

Dolkar Lhamo Kirti, the president of the Tibetan Women’s Association, and Samten Choedon, Vice president, met with Jiang Jufeng, the Governor of Sichuan Province at the Maurya Sheraton Hotel in New Delhi.

This is perhaps the first time that a visiting Chinese communist leader has ever come face to face with members of a Tibetan exile community on Indian soil, apart from the angry protests and anti China slogans faced by motorcade of Chinese leaders on visit.

The two briefed Jiang about the “heightened repression” on the Tibetans inside Tibet and the deepening crackdown in Kirti Monastery in Amdo Ngaba (Northeastern Tibet) and the ensuing arrests of hundreds of Kirti monks, a TWA statement said.

Ngaba County which has been at the centre of Chinese crackdown since March 16, after a monk of Kirti monastery immolated self in protest against China is situated in Sichuan Province.

Dolkar and Samten handed over the petition titled ‘Appealing for Immediate Legal Protection for Tibetans inside Tibet facing Persecution’ and a copy of the book A Sequence of Tortures; Diary of Interrogations written by jailed Tibetan woman author Jamyang Kyi along with a white scarf.

Jiang who was on a three-day visit to India starting April 25 not only accepted the petition but also assured TWA’s representative that he will look into the matter, the TWA said in its statement.

TWA’s president and vice president will meet with the members of the Indian Parliament and visit the High Commissions of 125 countries in Delhi to lobby for immediate intervention into the situation in Amdo Ngaba, according to the statement.

On Monday, TWA and its 57 regional chapters spread across the world launched the 'Global Petitioning and Lobbying Week' to draw international arbitration into the crackdown in Kirti Monastery and to request parliamentarians, governments, and rights groups.

The organization seeks legal measures, among other demands, from international community to stop the crackdown on monks of Kirti Monastery. It demands that the Chinese Government must allow foreign media into Ngaba region to report the situation.

The TWA, unlike the largest pro independence group the Tibetan Youth Congress, supports the position of the Tibetan government in exile to seek meaningful autonomy for Tibet within the People's Republic of China.
