Students for Free Tibet Protest at Australian Mission to the UN - 2003-05-20


Students for Free Tibet and an international coalition of human rights and environmental groups called on Australian listed miner, Sino Gold Ltd., to cease all exploration in Tibet until Tibetans in a position to freely express their wishes about the use of their resources. The company is currently carrying out exploratory drilling at Jinkang in the Tibetan area of Amdo on the border of the TAR. If a min goes ahead, Sino-Gold would be the first foreign company to mine in Tibet, creating precedent for other foreign companies to exploit.
