(TibetanReview.net, Oct24, 2018) – Some 35 activists of the Tibetan Youth Congress, which campaigns for the restoration of Tibet’s independence, were taken away by police as they protested outside the Chinese embassy in New Delhi on Oct 23. The occasion was the visit by a Chinese delegation led by State Councilor and Minister of Public Security Zhao Kezhi, with members from the Tibet Autonomous Region leadership, to sign the first Sino-India internal security cooperation pact.

The embassy was heavily fortified and the activists could only protest near the entrance of the embassy. Video clips of the event, which was held early in the morning, were widely circulated on social media sites. They show the activists bearing Tibetan national flags while shouting slogans such as “free Tibet”, “No Human rights in Tibet”, “we want freedom”, “we want peace”, “we want free Tibet”, and “China leave Tibet”. Activists, including women, ran between parked vehicles near the embassy gate to avoid the police coming after them before they were all bundled into a police van.

Police in New Delhi have generally released such protesters at the end of the day, although there have been times when detentions continued for days and few occasions when they led to criminal charges.
