Holding Tibetan national flags the monks from Shingtri Monastery moved in a procession on the streets of Gepa Sumdo on 15 March. The monks headed towards the local municipal office, shouting slogans for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, freedom and equal respect for the Tibetan language.

The monks were later joined by thousands of lay people during the peaceful protest. The police have arrested over 50 monks after the protest. Next day, more than 2,000 Tibetans shouted slogans in front of the police station for the release of the arrested monks.

In another incident, a Tibetan student of middle school in Ba Thunte raised voices for the Tibetan people's right to freedom of religion and language. The whole region is currently under severe restrictions.
