Vancouver's Tibetan Community Demanding an End to the Looting of Tibet Protesters Tell Investors to Stay Out of Tibet

February 1, 2011

by MASROUR ZOGHI ORIGINAL PEOPLES

Today a colourful group of 40 to 50 Tibet protestors gathered outside
the Convention Centre which was hosting the Vancouver Resource
Investment Conference to demand an end to the involvement of the
Canadian mining companies in Tibet, who provide a front for the looting
of Tibet's natural resources by the Chinese Communist Party.

The rally was organized by Students for Free Tibet (SFT) and endorsed by
Canada Tibet Committee (CTC). The crowd chanted slogans like "Tibet's
resources are for Tibetans" and "Stop the mining in Tibet." The
protestors also engaged investors in discussion as part of their
education campaign to hopefully get the message across to them that
human rights violation is risky business.

There are a number of Vancouver-based mining companies that have dealing
in Tibet, perhaps the most significant example of which is China Gold
International.
