ARUNACHALIS JOIN TIBETANS
IN PROTEST AGAINST CHINESE PRESIDENT
New Delhi Chinese President, Hu Jintao will arrive in India today and face protests by Tibetans and people from Arunachal Pradesh, the northeastern Indian state claimed recently by the Chinese as a part of their territory. Chinas claim to Arunachal caused shock and outrage across India. In another development yesterday evening, more than six hundred Tibetans were surrounded by police at the hall they had rented to sleep in and, after a long standoff, were evicted because of their close proximity to the Chinese embassy and the hotel where Hu Jintao will stay. The group was forced to move to the Tibetan refugee camp in the north part of the city. Under the banner of The Tibetan Peoples Movement and using the rallying cry Chalo Delhi, six major Tibetan Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are holding three days of protest in Jantar Mantar, in the Indian capital. The protests kicked off yesterday with a march and rally of more than 600 people. More than 150 Arunachal people, along with 400-500 additional Tibetans from the Tibetan refugee camp in Delhi, will join today. Kirin Rijiji, Member of Parliament for Arunachal Pradesh, will also be in attendance.

Tsering, President of the Tibetan Womens Association. China is attempting to redraw the map yet again and this is unacceptable to Tibetans, Arunachalis and people of India.
