On Sunday, the Tibetan Youth Congress decided to organize an indefinite hunger strike in New Delhi to support their brothers and sisters inside Tibet during the unprecedented wave of self-immolations. Three executive members of the Tibetan Youth Congress will participate in the strike, scheduled for September 3, 2012: Vice President Dhondup Lhadar, Organizational Secretary Penpa Tsering, and Cultural Secretary Jigme (Sholpa). Tibet Post International has the full story.

Earlier this year, the Tibetan Youth Congress organized a hunger strike outside United Nations headquarters in New York. The protest lasted for a month.
