Day 6:TIBETAN HUNGER STRIKE AT UNITED NATIONS


Times of Tibet TIBETAN HUNGER STRIKE AT UNITED NATIONS REACHES DAY SIX:


"Today marks the sixth day of the Tibetan Youth Congress's (TYC) indefinite hunger strike outside the United Nations headquarters.
Ms. Dolma Choephel, Mr. Gyatso, and Mr. Sonam Wangdu have not eaten
since Friday, April 2 and do not plan to until the United Nations meets
their demands. The hunger strikers want the United Nations to re-open
the debate on the deteriorating human rights situation in Tibet, to
appoint a special rapporteur to investigate religious and political
freedom in Tibet, and to pressure China to release several high profile
political prisoners, including Tenzin Delek Rinpoche, who was arrested
two years ago today."
