A rare chance to hear a first hand account of surviving

A rare chance to hear a first hand account of surviving 21 years in Chinese Prisons in Tibet Born into a powerful chieftain's family in idyllic Eastern Tibet, Ani Pachen took over from her father in 1958 and led her clan in the revolt against the Chinese. The following year, she was captured and eventually thrown into Drapchi, the most infamous of Chinese prisons in Tibet. For 21 years, her faith and lifelong dream of meeting the Dalai Lama enabled her to survive the appalling conditions and barbarous treatment -- treatment which continues in Tibet today and which China must account for to the civilised world at the United Nations Commission for Human Rights which starts on March 19th 2001.
