Dharamshala — Students for a Free Tibet-India (SFT) organised an awareness campaign about the 11th Panchen Lama of Tibet in the Mcleod Ganj and Dharamshala areas to commemorate the 27-year disappearance of the 11th Panchen Lama.

Mundgod — Regional Tibetan Youth Congress, and Regional Tibetan Women’s Association, Mundgod organised 'Bike Rally for Panchen Lama' to raise awareness about his situation, the condition of Tibetans living under the hard-line policies of the Chinese government and to show our solidarity to our brothers and sisters inside Tibet.

Dharamshala — “In 2021, the government of the People's Republic of China (PRC) continued to perpetrate gross human rights violations involving arbitrary detention and torture, religious repression, and a widespread crackdown on the right to freedom of expression and information. In particular, the Chinese party-state made no pretence that forced cultural assimilation has now become an entrenched part of Chinese policy in Tibet,” said TCHRD’s annual human rights report.

Former political prisoner Ven Bagdro on Friday conducted a solo protest in front of the Chinese Consulate General in Sydney, calling on the Chinese government to end all tightened restrictions on Tashi Wangchuk, an advocate for Tibetan language rights in his home country.

Dharamshala — “The so-called bilingual education policy, ostensibly promoted to unite non-Chinese nationalities throughout the PRC, drastically limits the use of Tibetan language in the education system, both secular and monastic, and directly impacts the survival of Tibetan linguistic and cultural identity,” says a report titled, “Sucked Our Marrow: Tibetan Language and Education Rights under Xi Jinping”.

Dharamshala — “The Chinese occupation of Tibet is the root cause of the climate or environmental mismanagement in Tibet. We have witnessed many environmental disasters and problems in Tibet, such as the melting of glaciers. Tibet is warming up two to three times faster than the rest of the world, which will have an impact on water, 1.4 billion people in Asia depend on water flowing from Tibet,” said Dr Lobsang Yangtso, on Earth day.
