Tibet-Women-Protests-2016Dharamshala — Holding up portraits of spiritual leader of Tibet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, two young Tibetan women staged a protest in Ngaba (Chinese: Aba) town on November 15, 2016, against Chinese repressive rule in Tibet.

No information is yet known of the identity of the two Tibetan women, although footage is circulating online of their demonstration, where they are shown in a video clip waering traditional Tibetan clothes and walking on a main road near Kirti monastery in Ngaba county and calling out "Long live His Holiness the Dalai Lama."

The Dharamshala based Kirti Monastery's Media coordinator said they have not heard from anyone who saw them being arrested, but they know that the local authorities in Ngaba have never ever spared any peaceful demonstrators in the streets since 2008.

"Even on the remote chance that they weren't arrested at the time, armed forces would be deployed to hunt down those protesters. Tensions are still very high in Ngaba."

Ngaba town has been the scene of repeated self-immolations and other protests by monks, former monks, and nuns opposed to Chinese rule in Tibetan areas.

Authorities raided Ngaba's Kirti monastery in 2011, taking away hundreds of monks and sending them for "political re-education," while local Tibetans who sought to protect the monks were beaten and detained, sources said in earlier reports.

Tibet was invaded by Communist China in 1949. Since that time, over 1.2 million out of 6 million Tibetans have been killed, over 6000 monasteries have been destroyed— the acts of murder, rape and arbitrary imprisonment, torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment were inflicted on the Tibetans inside Tibet, Beijing calls a "peaceful liberation".
