As thousands of people around the world stand in solidarity with the victims of the Tiananmen massacre on its 25th anniversary, Tibetans in Dharamsala joined the global solidarity campaign to pay homage to those who sacrificed their lives for freedom and democracy in China.

The Campaign organized by the Student for a Free Tibet India Chapter, and the Regional Tibetan Youth Congress, took place at the Mcleod Ganj Day School, Dharamsala, North India, where they held a photo exhibition of the massacre that took place in Beijing 25 years ago.

Four young Tibetan youth discussed their way of looking at the Tiananmen movement, and the reasons behind Tibetan solidarity. The speakers were Miss Tenzin Dhadon Sharling, Member of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile; Tenzin Jigme, President of the Tibetan Youth Congress; Lukar Jam, Executive member of the Gu Chu Sum Movement of Tibet; and Dorjee Tseten, Students for a Free Tibet Asia Director.

The talk was followed by the documentary ‘The Tank Man.'

The campaign also called for the release of Liu Xiabo, prominent Chinese democracy activist; Ilham Tohti, human rights activist, and Hada, Southern Mongolia freedom movement activist.
