JOGOS OLÍMPICOS DE PEQUIM ***
TYC President Tsewang Rigzin said to the media,
" The Tibetan Youth Congress launched this hunger strike today because of the serious situation inside Tibet where Tibetans are suffering tremendously under the brutal oppression of the illegal Chinese communist regime and since March 10, because of the historic uprising by Tibetans inside Tibet, Tibet is virtually under siege right now without any freedom whatsoever. We feel that it is the responsibility of the Tibetans in exile to further our sustained movement and keep the Tibetan issue on the international stage and also put as much pressure as we can on the Chinese government."TYC also aims to launch People's Mass demonstration on August 7, 2008 which is based on the principles of Gandhi's non violence and 'Satyagraha' (insistence on truth).
