Global Day of Action for Tibetan film-maker Dhondup Wangchen

Dharamshala: Tibet campaigners call Global Day of Action for Dhondup Wangchen today, on September 23, to express their outrage upon learning details of the probable charges facing the Tibetan film-maker. Dhondup Wangchen was formally arrested in July 2008 under suspicion of “inciting separatism” and espionage for filming interviews with ordinary Tibetans about their views on the Olympic Games, the Dalai Lama and Chinese government policies in Tibet.  Last Updated on Wednesday, 23 September 2009 17:17

Eighth session of fourteenth Tibetan Parliament in-exile postponed indefinitely

Dharamshala: Proceeding sessions of the 14th Tibetan parliament-in-exile have been postponed indefinitely as of this afternoon. The reason for this was a staged walkout by some members after a proposal made by a fellow MP. This decreased the number of members in attendance to less than two-thirds (28 members) of the entire parliament which, according to the Tibetan charter, did not allow the parliament to continue with the session.
