Tibetan activists kick off protest against Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s Visit to India
[Saturday, December 22, 2018 14:34]

DHARAMSHALA, Dec. 22 -Twelve Tibetan activists belonging to the Students for a Free Tibet, India, were arrested on Friday following a protest in front of Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra just 15 minutes before the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s arrival at the Gala Event preceded by an unwelcoming banner action late at last night. Wang Yi is currently in Delhi to jointly inaugurate the high-level India-China people-to-people exchanges mechanism with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. The protesters shouted slogans demanding Freedom for Tibet.

“Even after 59 years of illegal occupation of Tibet by China, Tibetans inside Tibet continue to resist illegal Chinese rule through various means of nonviolent protests. Recently Drugkho, a Tibetan youth self-immolated to protest China’s Human Rights abuses. More than 160 Tibetans have self-immolated(4) both in and outside Tibet with a demand of freedom and return of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama,” the Dharamshala based activist group said in a statement.

The activist group, comprised of students studying in various colleges across India, said the human rights situation in Tibet has deteriorated dramatically in recent years as fundamental rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly, religion and privacy have been severely restricted.

“The ongoing Belt Road Initiative (BRI) by China under the leadership of Xi Jinping is nothing but another form of their devious expansionist tactics where they use “debt traps” to occupy these countries. What happened to TIbet in 1950s could happen to the countries associated with this rather grand strategy of China,” the statement said.

“For the last three years Tibet has been ranked as one of the least free nation of the world only second to Syria. The media forum inauguration by Wang Yi is a complete hypocrite. As the Chinese citizens are controlled by state media thus allowing no information from outside world. China has been implementing an authoritarian tech dystopia, an A.I.-based surveillance technologies to police its 1.4 billion people thus making it easier to restrict any kind of activities in political nature which could be a threat to the very existence of Chinese Communist Government” said Tenzin Tselha, National Director (Students for a Free Tibet, India.)
