Freedom Forum has condemned the government's clamp down on the 'free
Tibet' rally organized by Tibetan protestors and preventing them from
submitting memorandum to the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu.

Issuing a statement on Tuesday, the forum said, "The act of thwarting
the rally and suppression meted out against protestors exercising
their right to expression is condemnable."

The forum further said, "It is sheer violation of freedom of opinion
and expression. Everyone has the right to exercise this freedom which
includes freedom to hold opinions without interference."

Tibetan protestors and a few police personnel were injured in clashes
at Chabahil and Boudhha in the capital Monday when the latter tried to
block their march to the Chinese Embassy.
