We Are No Terrorist Group: TYC Book བོད་སྐད།

The Tibetan Youth Congress released a book today to counter Chinese allegations that described the largest Tibetan Non Governmental Organization as a terrorist group. At a press conference held for the launch of "RESPONSE: Response to the Allegations of the Communist Party of China", Dhondup Dorjee Shokda, Vice President of the organization said that the book will reveal the series of attempts made by the Chinese government to malign the Tibetan People's peaceful movement and counter the numerous unfounded allegations made by the CPC.

"By seeing the potentials of TYC, China has been preparing for decades to disrupt and sabotage the activities of the organization. At the time of TYC's inception in 1970, China strongly criticized its very foundation and today, China not only condemns its very existence but also its policies and activities. In the coming decades, China will most likely intensify its allegations against TYC", said Dorjee.

Chinese authorities refer to the group as a terrorist organization and accuse it of orchestrating violence in Tibet.

The Tibetan Youth Congress, founded in 1970, has some 30,000 members spread across 12 countries, with the largest chapters in India, Nepal and the United States.
