Subject: 10th March Bycott by TWA & Gu Chu Sum
Mar 10 2015 07:48 PM

I am sad, rather shocked, to read that TWA and Gu Chu Sum refused to participate in this year's 10th March procession in Dharamsala. More so, because I have been holding great respect for both these organizations for many years. The reason as I gather from Phayul report, is that these organizations are opposed to other participants raising slogans for 'Rangzen'. On one hand the Tibetan community claims to be a 'democratic' society but on the other hand, some prominent organizations like TWA and Gu Chu Sum even refuse to tolerate other participants with different ideas and slogans.
As far as I understand, HH Dalai Lama gave the gift of democracy to the Tibetan society with the idea that each member can contribute to the national struggle of Tibet in his/her own way. That means ensuring everyone's contribution to the struggle of Tibet despite different views of certain national issues. In my opinion this is a direct insult to HH Dalai Lama on two grounds. One, they denied others their democratic right to express themselves. Second, this amounts to 'buycotting' the spirit of 10th March. They could have easily chosen to shout their own slogans within their own groups without hurting the unity of the community. Such developments are only going to make the Chinese happy and strengthen their hands. This is really sad, if not 'shameful' on the part of any patriotic Tibetan.
An old friend like me of Tibet and Tibetan community can only advise that your community is already too small to be further divided on such issues. Please don't divide Tibet and Tibetans further. Vijay Kranti
