Regional Tibetan Youth Congress, Darjeeling in collaboration with RTYC Kurseong organised two days workshop on Human Rights and Democracy on and from 1stof October 2006 at Tibetan Settlement Community Hall at Sonada.

Around 50 people on the fist day and around 60 people on the second day participated in the workshop where 95% of the participants were students from CST Darjeeling and Sonada and few college students. The workshop was sponsored by National Endowment for Democracy (NED).

In the workshop, Mr. Tsultrim Dorjee, General Secretary of CENTREX Tibetan Youth Congress and his associate Mr. Tsering Dhundup, Public Relations Officer, TYC were present. Mr. Dorjee officially declared the commencement of the workshop. In his brief address to the people present there, he offered his sincere gratitude to all the speakers and the students present there. Further, he implored all the participants to dissipate whatever they come to know from the workshop to the common Tibetan mass. On the first day there were three speakers viz., Mr. Jigmee Urgen, Trained Graduate Teacher, C.S. T. Darjeeling, Mr. Tsewang D.

On the first day while addressing the workshop, Mr. Jigmee Urgen requested the youngsters to enrol themselves in RTYC to provide more moral, physical and helping hand in the struggle for Freedom of our country. He also laid emphasis that instead of passing on hypocritical remarks, we should plunge into the field to rectify it. Further Mr. Urgen spoke on ‘Concept of Democracy’ and ‘Origin of Tibetan Democracy.’ In his address, he acquainted the participants regarding four essential things for the proper implementation of the Democracy which being there should be an active participation from citizen, Education, Voluntary action and cooperation and Economic Development.

Similarly the second speaker Mr. Tsewang D. Paljor spoke on Charter of Tibetan Government, its formation, clauses and major changes that came after the charter like formation of Independent Election Commission, Public Service Commission and Chief Justice Commission. He also provided information regarding ‘Future Vision of Democracy of Tibet.’ While talking on the above topic, he brought light to several questions such as; what will be the role of exile govt. in future Free Tibet? Will they continue or not? What will be the role of officials working under the supervision of Chinese govt.? What form of govt. will be set up? What will be the role of H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama in the govt.?

On the second day, there were four speakers, Mr. Tsering Dhundup, Public Relations Officer, TYC, Mr. Dawa Tashi, Tibetan teacher from CST Darjeeling, and Monk Chewing from Tibet and Mr. Tsultrim Dorjee, General Secretary of CENTREX Tibetan Youth Congress. The workshop initiated with the group discussion of the participants, where they discussed and expressed their opinion regarding essential features of Democracy, drawbacks of Tibetan Democracy and remedies/suggestions to overcome the drawbacks. The first speaker was Mr. Tsering Dhundup. Mr. Dhundup spoke on ‘Current Situation in Tibet’ particularly political situation, judicial system, development, freedom of expression, medical and public health care and religion. The second speaker was Mr. Dawa Tashi. Mr. Tashi talked about the ‘Three Pillars/Organs of Tibetan Democracy and its Function.’ During the question session, when a student of CST asked that why there is only one Tibetan Economic teacher in CTSA. Mr. Tashi said that there is no scarcity of qualified Tibetans. However the main cause is most of the Tibetans are running after Dollars. The Second speaker was Monk Chewing who talked about the ‘Present Scenario in Tibet.’ When a student asked him, with what motive he came to India, he said, I came to India only to get blessing from H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama so as to make my life worth and successful. The third and the last speaker was Mr. Tsultrim Dorjee who talked about the brief history of the Tibet, the present and the future of Tibet.
