Dharamshala -- The ex-political prisoners
organization, Gu-Chu-Sum Movement of Tibet this
morning launched a three-day book exhibition in
the library of Namgyal College, at the main
Tibetan temple in Dharamshala, India, where
exiled Tibetan government based for last 50 years.

The exhibition commemorates 50 years of peaceful
struggle to save Tibet from Chinese oppression,
and features 200 books about the achievements of
those who have fought and in some instances lost
their lives for the Tibetan cause.

Gu Chu Sum's president, Ven Ngawang Woeber, told
The Tibet Post International, "The exhibition
marks the end the first 50 years of Tibet's
occupation and of Tibetans living in exile.

"The books were written by ex-political prisoners
who fled to India, and other Tibetans in exile,
describing the real situation in Tibet, in
opposition to misleading Chinese propaganda."

Ven Ngawang added that it is very important for
Tibetans in exile to read and understand these
stories, as historical evidence of China's tyranny.
