Tibetans in Dharamshala march in solidarity with Hong Kong

DHARAMSHALA, August 19: Tibetans and supporters carried out a candlelight vigil in solidarity with the people of Hong Kong here at McLeod Ganj this evening.

Led by activists and organized by GuChuSum, an organization of former political prisoners, locals and tourists walked from the main square to the Martyr’s Pillar near Tsuglagkhang (Dalai Lama temple) carrying banners and placards that read, “Hong Kong is NOT China”, “Tibet with Hong Kong”, “Tibet supports Hong Kong.”

Namgyal Dolkar Lhagyari, the president of the Gu-Chu-Sum, said people of Hong Kong from all quarters of society are part of the ongoing mass protest against the Extradition bill, saying there is a lot Tibetan people can learn from the protestors about the power of non-violent resistance.

Tenzin Tsundue, activist and poet based in Dharamshala, said what is happening in Hong Kong has been happening in Tibet for the last 60 years and asserted it will happen in China tomorrow. “Hong Kong today, China tomorrow.”

Marchers posed for a photo in front of the symbolic Martyr Pillar and collectively shouted: “Hong Kong, we are with you.”

The press release issued at the event said, “We stand with people of Hong Kong in their fight for justice and right to self-determination. We stand with nations and world leaders of the People of Hong Kong. We urge leaders and nations who are silent on the issue to condemn the atrocities inflicted upon the non-violent protesters in Hong Kong.”
