Dharamsala : The Tibetan government in exile said Wednesday it plans to hold protests against Chinese rule on October 19 worldwide to highlight the deepening crisis in Tibet .
â€œSince March this year the situation is tense in Tibet with rising cases of self-immolation by young Tibetans who find Chinaâ€™s occupation and repression of Tibet intolerable ,â€ said .
â€œWe express our solidarity with those who lost their lives and with all other Tibetans who are incarcerated for their courage to speak up for the rights of the people,â€ a spokesman of the Tibetan government-in-exile said in this northern Indian hill town .
â€œWe appeal to the United Nations and all freedom loving countries around the world to show their support and solidarity with the Tibetan people at this critical stage ,â€ said the official .
