[New York City] Free Tashi Wangchuk Protest
January 26, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Tibetan shopkeeper, Tashi Wangchuk, 31, was detained on January 27, 2016, after appearing in a New York Times video in which he advocated for the rights of Tibetans to learn and study in their mother tongue. In March, 2016, he was charged with “inciting separatism,” and faces up to 15 years in prison, despite his clear statement not calling for Tibetan Independence.
