19feb20106Dharamshala: Tehor Association today celebrated the launch of its new book, Peaceful Protest: a Continuous Wave of Bravery.

The book is an account of the historic protests by the people of Tehor in Eastern Tibet against Chinese rule which took place between March 2008 and June 2009. It covers the brutal Chinese crackdown on the protests, with biographies of protestors killed in the conflict and in detainment, as well as a survey of the Chinese military outposts in Tibet.

Speaking on behalf of the Tibetan Cabinet, the Prime Minister thanked all the volunteers who were involved in the production of the not-for-profit book., and spoke to attendees of the importance of written documentation of these events. "Tibet's struggle for its politics, religious culture and community has continued for 60 years, and is almost out of memory. Records of these events are very rare so it is very important to keep a written factual account, in order to keep a standardised history," the Prime Minister said.

The ceremony took place in Gangchen Kyishong, at the residence of the Tibetan Government in Exile. Also attending the ceremony were Penpa Tsering and Dolma Gyari, the speaker and deputy speaker of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile, along with representatives of NGOs.
