Key updates on October 7 Day 28 of the hunger strike by executives of the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) “Former TYC President Tsewang Rigzin la visited the UN on behalf of TYC as a Special Representative upon our request. Tsoktsur Tsewang Rigzin la met with Assistant Secretary General of the Office of Human Rights Commissioner Ivan Simonovic and informed him about the critical situation in Tibet and requested them to respond to the TYC’s Indefinite Hunger Strike in Delhi and the demands.” (Source TYC)
Excellent work by the TYC and we hope that the United Nations (which today found itself again mired in controversy after allegations that a former UN executive was bribed by Chinese businessmen http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/10/06/us-investigating-alleged-united-nations-bribery-scheme/ ) will respond positively to the just demands being placed upon it for action on Tibet.
Secondly, we just received a tweet from @anonymzmeduza reporting that a Chinese regime website has today been attacked by the hacktivist collective known as #teamriddler. The official site, which seems to cover the Nagchu area of Tibet’s Kham region has been been targeted.
