Continuing with their agitation against China, Tibetan nuns and monks
here staged a protest today. Around 30 nuns and monks from the
Dhomalin nunnery sat in silent protest against Chinese atrocities inside Tibet.

The protesters said they were not against Olympics as generally
believed but were protesting against the human rights violation by
the host country, inside Tibet.

"Today, we have gathered here for a silent protest for freedom
struggle inside Tibet. Still, we are protesting for the Chinese
Government that we don't have human rights inside Tibet," said
Cheime, president, National Democratic Party of Tibet (NDPT).

China has controlled Tibet since People's Liberation Army troops
marched into the region in 1950 and Beijing considers Tibet as an
integral part of its territory.

Tibetans are trying to reinvigorate their freedom movement and
protest against what they see as China's illegal occupation of their homeland.

Over 25,000 Tibetans are expected to gather in New Delhi on August 8
to participate in a mass demonstration campaign and appeal to the
world community to boycott the Beijing Olympics. (ANI)
