Dorje Gyalpo la (ABOVE) who was forcibly removed from the Tibetan Hunger Strike, opposite the United Nations Headquarters in East Manhattan on Monday by NYPD, is continuing his fast. The doctor advised him again this morning to eat considering his grave health but he refused. He even refused the doctor to contact his family to update on his health saying “I have already told my family that whatever happens to me is something they should be proud of”. He asked the doctor to contact the UN instead and tell them to respond to the 5-point appeals of the hunger strikers.
