India : March to Save Kirti Monastery
We, the monks at Kirti Jeypa Monastery, in Dharamsala North India, and Sukhe Kirti Monastery in Darjeeling, are organising an all monk Peace March from Dharamsala to Delhi. This march is aimed to express support to our bretherens and fellow monks in Kirti Monastery in Ngaba,Tibet.Through this march, we are putting forward three point demands to the international community and the Chinese governement:
1). We appeal to the peace and justice loving people, governments, parliamentarians, NGOs and particuarly out Buddhist brothers and sisters all over the worl, for extensive campaigns and to pressurize the Chinese government to immediatley stop the ongoing brutal crackdown in Ngaba.
2). We call for the immediate release of all political prisoners in Tibet including the Panchen Lama and in particualr recently detained Tibetans from Ngaba including Lobsang Tsundrue and Lobsang Dhargay from Kirti Monastery
3). We urge the Chinese Government to respect human rights, freedom of expression and freedom of religion of all Tibetans inside Tibet. In particular the monks should be allowed to freely pursue their spiritual studies and be allowed to conduct the monastic administrative affairs in a free atmostphere for the wellbeing of resident monks and spiritual heritage of the monastery.
We urge all the just and peace lovong people and governments worldwide to support our cause.
