April 15, 2015 a Tibetan man, reported as Nei Kyab from Soruma village, Chojema town in Ngaba in Amdo Region of occupied Tibet sacrificed his life in a self-immolation protest against China’s violent and illegal occupation of Tibet.
In another political show trial China’s regime has revealed its contempt for genuine justice and charged November 3 a number of Tibetans in Ngaba region of Amdo, eastern Tibet with murder. It would appear that displaying compassion and support to anyone who sacrifices themselves for the freedom of Tibet is regarded as a criminal act! Details of the case have been released by the exiled Tibetan organization Gu Chu Sum and may be read on may be read on Dossier Tibet’s site
A Tibetan student from Tsoe City in Amdo region of occupied Tibet, self-immolated September 17 in protest of China’s illegal and violent rule in Tibet, the 22 year-old sacrificed himself outside Chinese security offices.
According to a VOA bulletin: “His family who live in Drukdo village, Amchok township, were informed of their son’s self-immolation by the security police who told them that he had died. However when family members traveled to Tsoe the next day and requested that their son’s body be given to them, the police told them that Tashi had been cremated already and then gave the family a some ash which they told the family were that of their son. Lhamo Tashi’s father is Chopa Tsering and his mother’s name is Dhukar Tso.”
Eds Note: Appreciation to RTYC Delhi for sharing information on this brave Tibetan’s action
Is the quest for sporting glory and achievement possessed of sufficient honor and integrity to absolve an individual from having any accountability to principles of human rights and the values of freedom?
It’s a question we are placing before Mr Mattia Gavazzi and the cycling team of Amore and Vita-Selle Smp who this month took part in a cycling event in so-called Qinghai Province, China, which in reality is formed mostly of Amdo Region in occupied Tibet.
We are appealing to Mattia Gavazzi and his cycling colleagues to reassess their participation in that race, and would advise that while he may gain success and elation cycling in what is a propaganda event authorized and backed by the Chinese regime, the Tibetan people continuously suffer the most appalling oppression and injustice.
We request Amore and Vita-Selle Smp to show solidarity with Tibet, human rights and freedom for people and reconsider any future involvement in this event. Surely this Ukrainian linked cycling team is aware of the freedom struggle to realize Ukraine’s nationhood? How would it have felt towards a race being held, organized and endorsed by the Soviet Regime in which Ukraine was described as being within Russia, while away from the cameras people were being oppressed and tortured?!
Anyone wishing to express their support on this appeal may contact Amore and Vita-Selle Smp via:
