China's luxurious structures for the sole benefit of the Chinese in Tibet: Jampa Tashi

Dharamshala: Jampa Tashi is an ex-political prisoner of 12 years and a member of the Gu-Chu-Sum Ex-Political Prisoners' Association in Dharamsala, India. "I was born in the Kham region of Tibet. I was a farmer and had no access to educational opportunities. This motivated me to become involved in political issues. Before that time I had no idea that a world existed outside of Tibet. I only looked after sheep and cows. In either 1986 or 1987, when I was 17 years old, I joined a Monastery in eastern Tibet. The facility had been destroyed by the Chinese government; the 25 monks lived in small houses instead. Last Updated on Friday, 05 June 2009 10:23
