In February 2013, the International Campaign for Tibet testified before the Committee on the Rights of the Child on the People’s Republic of China’s third and fourth report to the committee. ICT raised the lack of freedom of speech, assembly and association of underage Tibetans, many of whom are subject to repression when voicing protest on government policies in Tibet. ICT also raised concerns about the “disappeared” Panchen Lama and the lack of cultural rights, particularly of Tibetan children, who recently have protested, for example, against the discrimination of their mother tongue in the educational system in Tibet. Ahead of the session, ICT submitted a report which can be found on the UN website. ThePRC will be heard at the Committee session in September.
