03 september 2012 001Dharamshala: University of Delhi organized an event for the ‘International Day of Disappearance' (1st September) to raise awareness about the conditions and continued detainment of the political prisoners inside Tibet. Many Tibetan organizations and supporters, including the Student for a Free Tibet (SFT), participated in the events by hosting series of presentations and sharing their perspectives.

With the rising of both individual and mass arrests in Tibet, the ‘International Day of Disappearance' not only serves as a reminder of those who went missing for the Tibetan cause, but also to raise awareness on current well-beings of Tibetan political prisoners. During one instance in the program, a signature campaign was conducted for the release of Gedung Choekyi Nyima, the youngest political prisoner recognized as the 11th reincarnation of the Panchen Lama, as well as Norzin Wangmo, Rugye Adak, and Dondup Wangchen. Furthermore, the event highlighted the repressive ‘patriotic re-education' policies of Chinese government, which many believe are attempts to force Tibetan Buddhists to denounce their practices.

The event hopes to raise awareness of Tibetan political prisoners as well as reinstating the hope and determination of the Tibetan cause.
