January 2012 Tibetan protests in Sichuan

The January 2012 Tibetan protests in Sichuan province might have started with demands for religious freedom, or with a refusal to observe Chinese New Year.[1] At least two and perhaps as many as five Tibetans were killed by gunfire in Seda County and at least two in Luhuo County, both in Sichuan province.[1]

According to a Tibetan monk in India, thousands of Tibetans had participated in the protest and destroyed “Chinese shops and other Chinese facilities in the area.” [1]
