(TibetanReview.net, Dec02, 2015) – Chinese police in Karze (Chinese: Ganzi) County of Sichuan Province have taken away on Nov 27 or 28 a Tibetan man after he staged a lone street protest, shouting prayers of long life for Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, who is despised and condemned by Beijing.
The exile Tibetan administration at Dharamshala, India, said Nov 30 that the man, whom it named as 29-year-old Sangye, distributed prayer flags while shouting long life for the Dalai Lama in the main market square of Karze County.

The man, described as a resident of Rabkar village in Karze’s Dado Township, was pushed to the ground and quickly taken away within minutes, said the RFA report. His whereabouts remain unknown, although Karze is said to have two detention centres.
