The Dharmasala based Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) is a worldwide Organisation of Tibetans in exile struggling for the restoration of complete independence for the whole of Tibet, currently occupied by China.

The protests first erupted after China proposed an extradition bill paving way for China to extradite suspects to the mainland for trials. The bill has been shelved, however, the protests have now taken a pro-democracy shape with people demanding investigations for alleged police cruelty.

Ever since the protests broke out, more than 800 protesters have been arrested by the police including Joshua Wong, the popular pro-democracy leader.

Reports about the protestors being treated with pepper spray by the police have also emerged. The police has also resorted to batons and water cannon to scatter the crowd.

China while criticizing the protests has called for peace in Hong Kong.
