25 March 2008

Wide-scale protests continued for the 15th successive day despite heavy military presence across Tibet. In Tsolho, Amdo 100s of Tibetans from all walks of life held a solidarity march. Many marchers were seen carrying traditional prayer wheels in their hands while reciting prayers, a huge banner was held up reading “Peace, Democracy. We mourn and pray for our people who lost their lives”; the following day authorities raided suspected leaders’ homes. In Drango County more than 400 monks held a peaceful protest in solidarity against Chinese rule and vowed to stand with each other in solidarity.
