Day 21 – 4 March 2021

Delhi is only 80 kilometers only, and the aim to highlight the issue of Tibet in the India-China crisis and to start the campaign #RepealOneChinaStory just got a shot in the arm as more and people and organizations are joining the campaign.

Besides the online signature campaign, offline campaigns are now being conducted by Tibetan Women’s Association Central, Indo-Tibetan Friendship Association, Students for a Free Tibet India, Rtyc Dhasa in Dharamshala, Rtyc Shimla, Dekyiling Rtyc, RTYC Puruwala, Sonam la in Bylakuppe, Rtyc Paonta and Clement Town.

Other chapters of both the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) and the Tibetan Women’s Association (TWA) are slowly raising similar campaigns in their locality.

Signatures collected in this campaign will be finally submitted to the Prime Minister’s office in Delhi. But, India can’t do this alone. #RepealOneChinaPolicy campaign must become a global movement. Already it is being initiated in Belgium, France, Italy, and the UK.

Thank you, everybody. I request Tibetans and Tibetan supporters in the US, Canada, and Australia to start this campaign.

Today we walked 23 kilometers and arrived at Samalkha. Tomorrow we will reach Sonepat.

This march from Dharamshala to Delhi, 12 February to 10 March 2021, aims to highlight Tibet as the missing link between India and China. I am appealing to the government of India to #RepealOneChinaPolicy

Help me spread the word. Share, forward and tweet: #RepealOneChinaPolicy #WalkaMileForTibet
