The TYC Hunger-Strikers have now gone over 200 hours without food, in their fast for Tibet’s just cause for national independence and to raises awareness concerning China’s violent suppression of Tibetans and their culture. Photo Diary Of Day Nine Courtesy of Tsewang Rangzen

Meanwhile we have received reports that the harassment of this action by the New York Police Department is ongoing, characterized by insensitive and overly aggressive policing that is contemptuously disrespectful of the rights of the Tibetan activists and peaceful nature of their sacrifice. Yesterday  the Park P started throwing their muscle around and actually gave one of the Hunger-Strikers a ticket, we cannot help but wonder if this event is being unfairly discriminated against, as a consequence of political pressures applied via China, State Department, or the United Nations upon the Mayor’s Office.
