High Peaks Pure Earth has translated a blogpost by a Tibetan blogger from Amdo who calls his blog The Cry of Thoring Karchen or The Cry of the Dawn Star (tho rengs skar chen gyi ‘bod brda).
The original posting on http://www.tibetabc.cn/u/trgq/archives/2009/2009512193944.html was uploaded on May 12 2009 but has since been removed. Although the rest of his blog can still be accessed, instead of this particular posting, the following error message appears in Chinese:
To my many friends and fellow bloggers. Last year I was a prisoner. I was expelled from Tso School (slob gtsos). I was detained in the Chinese town Hidren (hi krin) for one month and several days. On my return I was fined five thousand (yuan) and wasnt allow to attend school. Here I am appealing to all the good-hearted people to offer me some money in order to pay my student fees.
The photo below was taken by a close friend and I wasnt able to post it until today.
