(TibetanReview.net, Aug19, 2015) – Chinese authorities in Ngaba County of Sichuan Province have detained on Aug 15 yet another young Tibetan mother after she staged a lone street protest, demanding freedom and the return from exile of Tibet’s spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. Raising slogans as she walked on the street of the county’s Meruma Township, Woekar Kyi, an about 23-year-old mother of a four-year-old son, also shouted that China’s repression of Tibetans had now crossed all limits, reported Radio Free Asia (Washington) Aug 17.

Chinese police took her away shortly after she started her protest, which occurred around 3:00 pm, and her whereabouts remain unknown.

A resident of Meruma Township’s Village No. 1, Woekar Kyi grew up as a nomad. The report, citing an exile Tibetan monk with local contacts, named her parents’ names as Kunpo and Phakpa, with the latter being the mother.

Earlier, on Jul 15, Chinese police in Village No. 3 of the same township detained Wangmo, a 22-year-old mother of two, after she staged a lone protest on the same street. She had raised similar slogans and had remained disappeared after being taken away by the Chinese police but was later released, although it was not clear when. Fellow-villagers gave her a hero’s welcome, said the exile Tibetan administration on its Tibet.net website Jul 23.
