A Tibetan from Parkdale-High Park Toronto on 770 km peace walk for Tibet

June 27, 2020

Toronto, June 27, 2020 – To celebrate the 85th birthday of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and to raise awareness about human rights situations in Tibet, a Tibetan-Canadian from Parkdale-High Park, Toronto - Sangay Kyab, is starting a peace walk on June 28, Sunday, for Tibet from Toronto-Ottawa-Toronto, covering a total distance of over 770 km.

Sangay Kyab, who won Mr. Tibet contest in Canada in 2016, has been diligently protesting in front of the Chinese Consulate in Toronto every Wednesday for the past 2 years. Through his activism, Sangay calls for China and the international community to support the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet, to renew Sino-Tibet dialogue in good faith, and to release Panchen Lama, Tashi Wangchuk and other political prisoners in Tibet.

This year marks 61 years since China illegally invaded Tibet in 1959. Since then, Tibet has remained one of the most repressed and least free regions in the world. Washington based research institute Freedom House has ranked Tibet as the second least free country in the world for the fifth year in a row. The PRC’s return to totalitarian ideology in recent years has led to even more control over Tibet with a sharp increase in the arbitrary arrest, detention, and torture of human rights defenders and activists. Peaceful dissent of any kind and degree are met with harsh penalties. Tibetans and Uyghurs suspected of criminal offenses, particularly those about political matters, are almost always denied the right to fair trial or hearing.
