The protest appears to be a direct response to a 10-point leaflet distributed to students by the local authorities. The leaflet was perceived to be derogatory towards the individuals who have carried out self-immolation protests and against use of Tibetan language.

Today’s protest by Chabcha Tibetan Medical School students lasted for about two hours before Chinese personnel used force to break the peaceful demonstration, injuring many students
 
More than 20 students have been hospitalized and four are reported to have required emergency treatment. The school is under complete lock-down and security forces have sealed the area. Parents and local Tibetans outside the school have been barred from getting in touch with any students inside the school.

Chabcha has seen a mass student protest in 2010 when more than 2000 students protested against the Chinese government's plan to remove Tibetan textbooks from schools. Earlier this month, a large number of students from Rebkong County took to the streets to demand language rights and the return of the Dalai Lama.

Over a thousand students in Chabcha county in Tsolho prefecture took to the streets Monday morning around 6am to call for equality of nationalities, freedom of language, investigation of present situations and respect for truth. The protest by Chabcha Tibetan Medical School students lasted for about two hours before Chinese personnel used severe force to break the peaceful demonstration, injuring many students. The school is under complete lock-down and severe restriction. Today's mass student protest is known to have triggered by distribution of sheets by Chinese authorities that denounced the self-immolations as foolish separatist actions, questioning the meaning of such actions.
