TCHRD goes after ban on freedom of expression in Tibet

See also

The situation in Tibet has been tense for a long time with protesters claiming that freedom of expression has been among other rights which have been undermined by the Chinese authorities. reported on Dec. 7, 2013, the Tibetan Centre of Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) has launched a campaign against a ban on freedom of expression in Tibet. This campaign has also been endorsed by the Voice of Tibet Radio and the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts.

TCHRD says it s concerned about the rapidly decreasing space for writers and artists to freely and courageously express their views. TCHRD is on a drive to pressure China to respect Tibetan rights. Since the 2008 uprising across Tibet, over a hundred Tibetan writers, poets, artists, intellectuals and cultural figures have been arrested, tortured and imprisoned. Tsering Tsomo, the director of the TCHRD, says these brave Tibetans represent a very significant new challenge to the Chinese authorities.

On December 10, 2013 this campaign will end with an awareness concert by one of India's leading rock bands, Parikrama. The concert will be held at TIPA, which is in Mcleod Ganj near Dharamshala. The primary focus of the message from the Tibetan protesters is the need for respect for freedom of opinion, expression and information among Tibetans. This is a really important initiative by TCHRD.
