Dharamshala —   Tibetans living in Shimla staged protest against China on the 66th anniversary of the seventeen point agreement. According to media reports, the exiled community members held a protest march in which they carried placards and banners, held national flag, and shouted slogans against China. This protest march was organized by the Regional Tibetan Youth Congress Shimla.

In 1951, the Tibetan delegation led by His Holiness Dalai Lama, as claimed by the Chinese, under a mutual acceptance signed the seventeen-point agreement with Central People's Government of China asserting their sovereignty over Tibet.

But according to the Tibetan people, Diaspora and CTA, it doesn't hold any validity as it was signed under duress and had been repudiated by Dalai Lama himself.

"The prime purpose of this rally is we are not accepting this 17-point agreement which was happened 51 years back and that was signed under the pressure made by the Chinese. So, we are completely against this 17-point agreement," said a protester, Tenzin Namsal.

The protesters also sought United Nation's support and pressure of the international community. "We are demanding that UNO and all countries should help us to get freedom from China," said another protester, Tenzin Dhonyo.
