Tibetans seek support for their movement

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, April 24 � Migmar Tenzin is a young Tibetan refugee in India. Though born and brought up in India, he and his friends have not sought Indian citizenship for the sole reason that they are hopeful of returning to their country, presently witness to the worst human rights violations.

Tenzin and his friends have arrived in Assam on a mission � to collect signatures of all people who support democracy. They have already covered 42 cities and towns in the country and collected the signatures of more than 17,000 people who have extended their solidarity to the movement going on in Tibet.

Talking to media persons here today, Tenzin said that all young Tibetan refugees in India were optimistic that the movement against the People�s Republic of China would bring in the desired changes.

�We represent the voice of the desperate yet bold young Tibetans inside Tibet. We want to alert the world about the ongoing atrocities being perpetrated by the People�s Republic of China,� said a blindfolded Tenzin, adding that Tibetans in India were concerned about the deteriorating situation in Tibet which has compelled leading Tibetans to take extreme steps. By blindfolding himself, Tenzin wanted to say that the world was blind towards the sufferings of the Tibetan people.

It needs to be mentioned here that Tenzin himself had attempted self-immolation before the Chinese Embassy in India and now he cannot walk without the help of a crutch. As reported, 26 Tibetans have self-immolated in Tibet so far, out of which 18 succumbed to their injuries.

Tenzin and his friends embarked on this journey to create awareness and support for Tibet last month on the 53rd Tibetan National Uprising Day.
