Earlier in May, Gonpo Dhondhup, President of the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) called for international support for Tibet amid China's repression and breaches of human rights, reported Tibet Rights Collective (TRC).
"It's been one week since the start of TYC's #TibetMatters rally & the energy is still going strong!" tweeted TRC. Notably, "Tibet Matters March" comes in the wake up of the recent disinformation campaign against Dalai Lama.
Speaking on the importance of the need to educate the world about Tibet and Tibetan culture, Dhondhup said, "Our march also plays an important role in educating the masses. We were very pained and hurt by the recent incidents. It was sad to see people misjudging Dalai lama based on a few seconds of an edited video. It has hurt the sentiments of millions of Tibetans, Buddhist followers, and admirers of the Dalai Lama around the world. So through this campaign, we aim at creating awareness among the people of what is our struggle, and what is our culture." (ANI)
