(Translated from Radio Free Asia’s Tibetan Service program, Woeser’s Forum, broadcast on February 7, 2015)
On account of the deletion of information from my Facebook account, the International Campaign for Tibet, based in the United States capital of Washington, D.C. launched a petition campaign to protest it. This showed that the issue of Facebook’s deletion of information is not insignificant or violent or bloody.
On the contrary, it is a video footage and related report on 23 year old Tibetan monk, Kalsang Yeshi, who lost his life after committing self-immolation in front of a police station on December 23. Therefore, the International Campaign for Tibet on January 5 launched an online petition campaign not only wanting explanation from Facebook for the deletion of the information, but also for the respect of freedom of expression.
