Tibetans in Kham Boycott Chinese Vegetable Stores
Apr 2011 07

There is a developing story from Tibet that reminds one of the power of nonviolence displayed during the time of Gandhi and MLK. Tibetans in Nangchen, Kham in eastern Tibet are reported to be boycotting Chinese vegetables. Read the full story at Tibet Post International and Radio Free Asia. What began initially as a response to skyrocketing food prices has now grown into an organized boycott of Chinese vegetable and food sellers. Many Chinese vegetable stores have lost much business since the boycott started, while Tibetans are now buying their vegetables from Tibetans who travel to Xining to buy vegetables in bulk.
