Pro-Tibet Protests at Chinese embassy in Mongolia

On April 30 a Tibetan resident of Mongolia climbed a tree outside the
Chinese embassy compound in Ulaanbaatar. T. Kalsang, whose brother was
among those killed in recent unrests in Lhasa, raised a Tibetan flag in
protest of Chinese dominance in the Tibet region. He was arrested
by the Ulaanbaatar police the following day. In a statement he announced
to continue to protest in Ulaanbaatar despite increasing
threats to his safety. China has been subject to increasing popular
protest opposing its governance of the Tibet region in the wake of the
Beijing Olympics. In Mongolia, however, has not seen much vocal protest,
apart from Kalsang's earlier effort of painting Free Tibet on the
Chinese embassy
wall. For centuries, Tibetans and Mongolians have shared long and
extensive cultural and religious traditions. Mongolia has its largest
border with China and is economically dependent on its southern neighbour.
