This is to rectify misinformation contained in Tenzin Nyinjey’s article published in Tibet Sun on July 27, 2012, in which he claims that the word rangzen/independence is taboo in Gangchen Kyishong.
Harry Wu, a pro-independence Chinese human rights activist, visited Dharamshala in March 2012. During that stay, the Kashag invited him to address the Central Tibetan Administration staff as part of the recently-established Tibet Policy Institute’s lecture series.
Additionally, in April 2012, Kalon Tripa Lobsang Sangay inaugurated the English edition book launch of Hidden Tibet — History of Independence and Occupation, authored by Sergius Kuzmin and originally published in Russian.
