This short documentary (25min long) shows footage of the 2006 Nangpa la shootings and the global protests held in response. It places this tragic incident in the context of China’s invasion and occupation of Tibet for viewers who may not be as familiar with the Tibet situation, and includes original footage from the Cultural Revolution.

On September 30, 2006 Chinese forces opened fire on a group of 73 Tibetan refugees attempting to escape Tibet through the Nangpa Pass into Nepal. Mountaineers at a nearby Everest base camp witnessed the Chinese border patrol guards taking careful aim and firing at the line of defenseless Tibetans seeking freedom from Chinese repression. Kelsang Namtso, a seventeen year old nun, was shot dead, and many others, including young children, were detained for several months before being released to their families.

Video footage of this shocking incident was broadcasted internationally and the world was reminded of China’s brutal treatment of Tibetans. Two years later, Tibetans continue to suffer greatly under Chinese rule, especially those who dare speak out for human rights and freedom. Your help is needed now to ensure the tragic events at Nangpa pass are never repeated.
