TYC activists storm Chinese Embassy in New Delhi as Xi begins India tour
Phayul[Wednesday, September 17, 2014 16:33]
DHARAMSHALA, September 17: Ten Tibetan activists of the Tibetan Youth Congress stormed the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi this morning as Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in western Indian city of Ahmedabad in Gujarat.

The Tibetan activists were detained and currently being held at Chanakyapuri police station.

According to the statement released by Tibetan Youth Congress, the protest was carried out to highlight the issue of Tibet, to show that the issue of Tibet is still alive and the resistance will continue until Tibet is free.

TYC further called on Chinese government to review their hard-line policies vowing to continue fighting for Tibet’s freedom and independence until the issue of Tibet is resolved.

“Xi Jinping is the leader of this communist regime that continues to oppress and repress the Tibetan people and deprive them of their rights. Instead of working to meet the demands of the Tibetan people, this regime continues their hard-line failed policies and use force and intimidation to silence the Tibetan people”, said Tenzing Jigme, President of Tibetan Youth Congress. “Xi must be held accountable for his actions and the international community must work towards introducing measures to end China’s illegal occupation of Tibet.”

Since 2009, 131 Tibetans have set themselves on fire in Tibet protesting against China’s occupation of Tibet and its hard-line policies.

Meanwhile, in Tibetan settlement in Majnu ka Tilla, hundreds of Tibetans took to the streets after they were barred to carry out a protest march from Ram Lila Maidan to Jantar Mantar. Hundreds of policemen were deployed at the Tibetan settlement that have been entirely cordoned off.

TYC has also submitted a memorandum to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Minister of Defense and Finance Arun Jaitley and Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj urging them to put Tibet on the agenda and draw Xi’s attention to the ongoing crisis inside Tibet when the leaders of two nations meet.

The Chinese President Xi Jinping is currently on a three-day visit to India.
