Dharamshala, India — A Tibetan man released from prison five years ago after serving a 21-year sentence for 'attempting to split the country' in 2000, has reportedly disappeared again, as of January 28, 2018. This will be his second detention in the past three years, as he was previously detained by authorities in 2016.
Dharamshala — “This administrative takeover of Larung Gar by Party officials shows that the government’s aim was not merely to reduce numbers at the settlement. Chinese authorities are also imposing pervasive control and surveillance over every level of activity within religious communities,” said Sophie Richardson, China director at Human Rights Watch, in a new report by Human Rights Watch.
Dharamshala, India — Tibetan nomads who have resided in their own homes for centuries around the Yulung Zangter Mountain in Kham Lhathog County of eastern Tibet, are now suffering after being forced to abandon their traditional grazing lands, with minimal compensation, in the name of development by the Chinese Government.
