Day 5 of India Advocacy Week.

We had our formal interaction with the Press and Media today at the Press Club of India, New Delhi. And submitted the our appeal letter to the Hon’ble Minister of External Affairs @drs.jaishankar

We notified the media on – the India Advocacy Week, the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) and major engagements we had with the Member of Parliaments, Ministry of External Affairs and supporters of Tibet on the same, requesting them to raise Tibet themed advanced questions in the upcoming fourth cycle of China’s UPR at the United Nations on January of next year.

The major themes emphasised at the press conference were the points of discussions we had with the hon’ble Indian dignitaries:

  1. China’s Cooperation with the UN allowing access to Human Rights experts.
  2. Oppressive Policies Targetting Tibetan Children including the sweeping Colonial Boarding School System.
  3. Denial of Freedom of religion including China increased control over the Tibetan reincarnation process.

This was followed by a vibrant Q and A session with the media personnel whereby we highlighted the significance of the UPR and how India can and should utlise this platform. The critical role that India plays in the succession of His Holiness the Dalai Lama was deliberated intensely.

We humbly thank long-time Tibet supporter and friend Vijay Kranti for assisting us with the media engagements and Pachen Dorjee la from @voice.of.tibet for the pictures taken today.
