Hunger Strike of Sonam Wangchuk 13 th Day : 250 Brave Souls Sleep Hungry in -12°C: Plea for Ladakh’s Environment

“Day 13 of #ClimateFast: 250 People Brave -12°C to Press Indian Government on Ladakh’s Environment

On the 13th day of my #ClimateFast, 250 individuals endured freezing temperatures while sleeping hungry, aiming to remind the Indian Government of its promises to safeguard Ladakh’s environment and protect its tribal indigenous culture.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in yesterday’s protests across different cities. Updates from the events are still coming in, and we’ll share them later today.

Despite the Indian Government’s self-proclaimed status as the ‘Mother of Democracy,’ it continues to overlook the democratic rights of the people of Ladakh. By maintaining bureaucratic control from New Delhi, it resembles more of a ‘Stepmother of Democracy’ in Ladakh’s context.”
