Dharamsala (Himachal Pradesh), Mar 27 (ANI): Representatives of the
International Tibet Support Network (ITSN), a consortium of more than 150
Tibet groups have converged at Dharamsala to discuss and evolve further
strategy on Tibet in a non-violent manner.

Fifty-two delegates from 11 different countries are participating in the
three-day conference that kicked off on Friday. "ITSN is running an Asia
regional meeting and what we do is to gather all of the Tibet support groups
who work within Asia, like from India, Bangladesh, South Korea, Japan,
Taiwan, Hong Kong," said Mandie Mcknown, an ITSN activist from England.

"We brought every one together and the idea of the three day meeting is to
strategise and plan on how we can coordinate and built the Tibet movement,"
Mcknown added.

ITSN was founded in 2000 in an attempt to strengthen individual member
organisations campaigning for human rights and self-determination in Tibet.

"The main outcomes we looking for to all groups we have to built their
capacity within themselves so they can understand the process of building
strategy, how important strategy is and being able to bring themselves
together on similar ways of involving each other together to campaign for
the better sort of cause for Tibet," said Mandie Mcknown.

Dharamsala is the seat of the Tibetan government in-exile and also the base
of their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama ever since he fled from Lhasa in
his homeland in 1959 after a failed uprising against Chinese rule. (ANI)
