Repeated protests in Kardze
Phayul[Monday, June 13, 2011 17:02]
Despite the recent incidents of harsh crackdowns by Chinese security personnel, Tibetans in Kardze, eastern Tibet, continue to carry out peaceful protests.

According to information received by the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) and confirmed by independent media sources, June 10 saw repeated protests by Tibetans in Kardze town.

At around 12 noon, Goyang, a 30-year old monk from Tsetang monastery took to the streets of Kardze town raising slogans for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the release of Bangri Rinpoche and other political prisoners. Eyewitnesses confirm that Gowang was severely beaten before he was taken to the police station.

Goyang’s 23-year old younger brother, Loyang was recently released from prison after serving a three-year prison term following his arrest in Kardze for taking part in a peaceful demonstration in May, 2008.

Around two hours later, nuns from the Kardze Lamdrak nunnery carried out another protest in Kardze town, throwing leaflets demanding Tibet’s independence.

The nuns, 25-year old Jampa Lhatso and 20 year-old Riga, raised slogans for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and for freedom of religion in Tibet before they were confronted by Chinese security personnel and whisked away to the police station.

A separate incidence of protest in Kardze by a nun named Tseyang on June 9 has also been reported.

There have now been at least six separate incidents of protests in the last one week in Kardze town. The situation there has been described as tense with reported build up of security restraining the movement of ethnic Tibetans in the town.

The protests come at a time when Tibet’s spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who is on an extended visit to Australia, told reporters that the voices of freedom was on the rise in China.
