DHARAMSHALA, August 30: The Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC), the largest Tibetan NGO in exile, undertook a peace march this afternoon in New Delhi in support of Hong Kong protestors as the mass resistance enters its 13th week, with its key pro-democracy activists arrested.

Tibetans came on the street of India’s capital in black, carrying black umbrellas with messages painted on it as they walked from Sansad Marg to Jantar Mantar in Connaught Place.

“This march supports the aspirations of the Hong Kong protest which demands to protect the basic human rights and democracy in Hong Kong,” the youth organization said in a press release.

The protestors demanded democracy for Hong Kong and freedom for Tibet, calling out China for its continued oppression.

The youth organization called the resistance in Hong Kong exemplary and inspirational for the organization and all other people and countries fighting against the communist regime.

“Despite the massive peaceful demonstrations in Hong Kong, Carrie Lam government under pressure from China continues to ignore the demands of the people.” TYC statement said, “We call upon China to stop bullying and oppressing Hong Kong and its people and stop interfering in Hong Kong’s internal politics.”

With the arrest of Pro-democracy activists who were charged with inciting and participating in illegal rallies, the planned weekend protest is shelved after Hong Kong police announced on Thursday they would not permit the Saturday rally, citing concerns over public order.

TYC, with over 35,000 members is spread across 88 regional chapters around the world fighting for Tibet’s independence from China.
