« The Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) protested in New Delhi on Friday to express their opposition to China’s involvement in the G20 summit, as the Indian capital hosts the event.
Demonstrators held banners reading ‘End China’s occupation of Tibet’, ‘G20 talks Tibet, China’s diplomatic assurances are not to be trusted’, and ‘One Earth, one family, one future, one dream – free Tibet’ among others.
« We want to let the world know how the Tibetans in Tibet are suffering, not only that millions of Tibetian children are being separated from their families and put up into the colonial boarding school just to eradicate the Tibetian identity », said a protester.
As the largest pro-independence Tibetan group, the TYC denounced China’s repressive policies in Tibet and called on leaders of G20 nations, who are attending the summit in New Delhi, to address the Tibet issue, according to local media reports.
« G20 is like a big platform in the world, 20 countries are gathering here and we want to raise this issue in G20. And we want to say that Tibet matters, the humanity matters. We all know that in Tibet cultural genocide and all these things are happening by China in Tibet since 1959. So we want to raise this issue in G20″, said another protester.
The TYC’s campaign also focused on condemning China’s measures as ‘oppressive’ and demand Tibet’s independence.
On March 10, 1959, a revolt erupted in Lhasa, in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China, with Tibetans surrounding the palace of their spiritual leader Dalai Lama to protect him against the threats from the Chinese army. The rebellion ultimately failed, driving the Dalai Lama into exile. »
