Tibetan Nuns Stage Pro-independence Demonstration in Lhasa - 2003-10-29

Tibetan stringer Gedun Rinchen reported from Kathmandu that on May 29th during the Shoton Festival in Lhasa, Tibet’s capital, four or five Tibetan nuns staged a brief demonstration calling for Tibet’s independence. The onlookers also joined the demonstration before the Chinese security came and took away the nuns in a van. More security people called in and they dispersed the gathering. Nuns have since disappeared and no one knows the whereabouts of the nuns.
