Chinese security forces opened fired on Tibetan protesters Monday in Luhuo (also known as Draggo), which is in western China, according to the New York Times. At least one person has been killed and at least 49 others were seeking medical treatment for wounds at a medical clinic operated by monks. Those who have gun shot wounds fear going to the hospital in case they are arrested.
This is the second reported shooting of Tibetan protesters in the last two weeks. Two people were reportedly injured at that protest.
Protesters were heard calling out for freedom for Tibet and the return of the Dalai Lama, according to freetibet.org, which is calling for the freedom of Tibet and for self-determination.
Internet has not been banned in the area.
The citizens of China need help. They have been given a voice, but they cannot use it.
The international community needs to stand up and speak out against the injustices occurring in China. Its citizens are being severely suppressed from speaking out against the government- and from speaking at all.
China is violating essential human rights, like freedom of expression and self autonomy, and tit is about time they are held accountable by the international community!
