Kunleng TV: Tibetan Hunger Strike

The fourteen Tibetans hunger strikers protesting in the intense heat of the Indian capital have entered a critical phase. In the past few days numerous Tibetan and Indian leaders have expressed solidarity and sympathy with the hunger strikers but have urged them also to end the protest to save lives.

This week’s Kunleng host Changchub Dolma talks to some of the hunger strikers, as well as to organizers and ordinary Tibetans about this latest attempt in a long string of Tibetan efforts to draw attention to the Tibet issue through this dramatic protest
