Tibetans in Machu Petition Fair Price For Meat and Dairy Products


Around fifteen to twenty Tibetans representing Tibetan nomads in Machu County, Kanlho Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Gansu Province staged a protest outside the local government building to demand fair prices for their animals and food security for the Tibetans living in the area.

Tibetan nomads holding a banner as seen in pictures surfacing the net, had previously raised their concerns about the unfairly low price provided by the authorities for their sheep and goat, in comparison to rest of the products available in the market, but their requests had repeatedly been ignored.

They have taken to the streets to petition for an improvement in the livelihood of the Tibetans living in the area, and provide a fair and fixed price for their meat and dairy products.
