    "In Dharamsala, India, the home of the Tibetan government in exile and the Dalai Lama, three Tibetans today began an indefinite hunger strike. Solidarity protests were held around the world... a monk in Gansu province holds up a photo of the exiled spiritual leader. In Tibet, this simple act is a crime."
