Tibet conference from Nov 2

5th All India Tibet Support Groups conference  will be held  on the occasion of the 80th birthday of Tibeti leader Dalai Lama and and to discuss present critical situation inside Tibet at Guwahati on November 2-3.

Representatives from across India of various Tibet Support Groups organizations will take part in the event to deliberate, discuss and strategize on strengthening the Tibetan movement and Tibet Support Groups in India for the peaceful solution of the issue of Tibet.

The purpose of this conference is to highlight the dim, ever growing repressive implementation of Chinese policies and the worsening situation of human rights situation inside Tibet.

Not only this, Chinese excessive exploitation of Tibetan natural resources and environmental destruction has caused a serious threat to the ecology of world and particularly of Asia. To approve this, in 1960s there were only dozen of dam but now more than 22,000 hydro projects and dams have been constructed. Being Tibet as third pole of world, it provides water to 3.1 billion population of India, China, Bangladesh and others. This means, around 46,000 glaciers which is extended over 1.5 lakh sq.meter and because of Chinese policy of destruction has now resulted in melting of more than 8740 glaciers and formed in lakes. Out of this, 204 lakes are in great danger of getting burst in any coming circumstances which may prove fatal to India more than any other countries. Every year, the issue of flooding arising from Brahmaputra, here in Assam is nothing but the result of China’s individualistic approach of gaining profit by harming other’s benefits and resources.

Also, the conference will focus upon the intense security between India and China in keeping view of Tibet’s vital existence. Despite India’s regard to bilateral relationship with China the latter has tried every effort to derail the virtues of this relationship with countless incursions in recent times.
