Monks complete cross-India march for Tibet

(TibetanReview.net, Sep29, 2011) Eleven monks of Gaden Jhangtse monastery at the Tibetan settlement of Mundgod, south India, completed at Dharamsala on Sep 23 a 20-day march from the city of Pune. They passed through six major Indian cities, in each of which they staged hunger-strikes to highlight the tragic human rights situation in Chinese ruled Tibet.

The campaign was meant to “pay homage to all the Tibetans who sacrificed their lives for the cause of Tibet” with special focus on the recent developments in Kirti and Tawu areas of eastern Tibet.

At Dharamsala, the 11 monks staged a three-day hunger-strike from Sep 27, joined by Tibetans at Dharamsala. The monks also took part in a candlelight vigil for the two teenaged monks of Kirti Monastery in Ngaba County of Sichuan Province who on Sep 26 immolated themselves while staging a protest against the Chinese government’s repression and denial of religious freedom in Tibet.
