Kashag's statement on Chinese suppression of Tibet protests

March 15, 2008


Dharamshala: Starting from 10th March this year, Tibetans from all
over Tibet started a series of peaceful demonstrations to express
their dissatisfaction with the Chinese policies. The Kashag had
earlier hoped that these demonstrations will stop.

However, partly due to heavy-handed response of the authorities to
these peaceful expressions that the demonstrations continued to spread
all over Tibet and the situation is getting worse.

Therefore, we are deeply concerned and have also urged the People's
Republic of China for due consideration to take these incidents with
all seriousness and not to take further repressive actions. The
situation urgently demands the attention of the governments,
parliaments and the international community to persuade the leadership
of People's Republic of China to refrain from further repressive
measures and to restore normalcy through peaceful means.
