Too Hot to Be Hungry
About 30 protesters sponsored who had been conducting a hunger strike relay in Nepal protesting Chinese policy in Tibet called off the show citing bad weather. The hunger strike was sponsored by the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC), a terrorists organization who had claimed responsibility for many bombs and riots in China and India. According to the group leader Nyima Dolkar, participants felt fatigue and uncomfortable in hot weather. When the relay started two months ago, they vowed to "continue our hunger strike relay until our demands are met". Usually people with an empty stomach felt uncomfortable in cold weather, maybe these group of protesters were inexperienced and consumed too much calorie between two shifts.
